The concept of reawakening the dead is so strange, that most people wouldn’t believe that it could exist, past b-rated horror movies. However, according to one corporation, it’s possible that it could happen by the end of the year.
Bioquark, which is based out of Philadelphia began discussing their belief that brain death was not ‘irreversible’ in 2016. Now, CEO Ira Pastor has made it clear that his intentions are to begin testing a stem cell method on patients in a remote area found in Latin America. They intend to release more details regarding their plan within the next few months.
However, he has stated that his company had developed a series of injections that could actually reboot the brain.
In order to do this, stem cells are injected into the spinal chord of those that had been deemed brain dead by a medical professional. He does this alongside an injection of protein blend, electrical nerve stimulation and laser therapy to the brain.
According to him, what this basically does is cause new neurons to grow, thus spurring them to connect to each other and bring the brain back to life.
Pastor explained, “It’s our contention that there’s no single magic bullet for this, so to start with a single magic bullet makes no sense. Hence why we have to take a different approach.
I give us a pretty good chance. I just think it’s a matter of putting it all together and getting the right people and the right minds on it.”
Other types of organisms, like fish and amphibians, have the ability to regenerate their brains after a major injury. And according to Discovery, it appears that this would be the goal of the injection therapy.
For now, the company is searching for candidates to use in their trials to see if they could possibly make their theory come to life, quite literally. In order to qualify, the person would need to not have any religious or medical barriers preventing them from being brought back to life. Once they have found their 20 candidates, Pastor stated that “We hope to see results within the first two to three months.”
