A project to reanimate brain dead patients has been approved for two biotech companies collaborating in reactivating the central nervous systems and reawakening the clinically dead patients.
The companies are Revita Life Science and Bioquark Inc., and the project is called the Reanima Project. The two companies are currently looking for 20 clinically dead patients.
Over 60 million people are declared brain dead and legally deceased every year. The clinically dead diagnosis of the brain dead means the irreversible loss of the brain functions needed to sustain a living organism’s activity. This unconscious activity such as breathing, blood production and distribution is the focus of the project.
Humans do not have the ability to reconstruct complex brain structures and systems the way some amphibians and fish do. After trauma as serious as life-threatening, some of these species are able to remodel or even regenerate the injured portion of the brain or brain stem.
With the help of the cutting-edge technology available today and the studying of those remodeling functions and reconstruction intelligence seen in non-humans, the two companies are confident enough to believe they will be capable of reviving the brain dead.
Their plan is to “push the envelope” on the idea that brain death is irreversible.
Developments is the fields of clinical resuscitation, regenerative biology, and cognitive neuroscience are making the job of Revita Life Science and Bioquark Inc. a probable success.
The project will start its first trials in India with the monitoring and administration of treatments meant to regenerate and stimulate the patient’s nervous system.
How will this work? The treatment would be a medical breakthrough based on stem cell injection and chemical infusion to the heart and lungs’ main frame, the spinal cord.
The team expects to see results as soon as a couple of months, and the vision of the two companies is to create full patient recovery, but right now they are focusing on finding the patients for the first trials.
With the approval of such an incredible and audacious project like the reanimation of the brain dead, the clinical brain dead diagnosis will be soon a problem of the past. Now imagine having around 60 million people saved from death every year.
