Ending Disease the Stem Cell, Anti-Cancer T Cell, And Antibody Revolution in Medicine
Ending Disease is a documentary series that follows patients and their doctors in the first generation of world changing FDA-approved clinical trials for stem cell, CAR-T cell, and antibody therapies. Stem cell and regenerative medicine are in the process of transforming medicine from a lifetime of treatments to one-time cures for a whole host of debilitating diseases. For the first time in history there are cures to many diseases, some of which previously there were not even any treatments for. Granted unprecedented access to groundbreaking trials taking place at top research facilities in the United States, the Ending Disease crew filmed through the duration of ten clinical trials that used stem cell and regenerative medicine to treat brain cancer, breast cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, HIV, spinal cord injury, eye disease, and SCID (babies born without an immune system), and the results are truly inspiring. Ending Disease establishes without a doubt that we are in a revolutionary time in medicine, where stem cell and regenerative medicine is changing therapies from treatments to cures. This series takes the viewer through a powerful emotional journey, following patients with their eyesight on the line, their ability to move on the line, and with their life on the line, revealing human stories of patients and their doctors working together on the frontier of medical science.
