Adult stem cells save athlete from amputation
In March, Andre Lampkin, 20, was facing the amputation of his legs and arms. But an experimental treatment using his own stem cells to stimulate tissue growth is giving the former wide receiver hope after meningitis damaged his limbs.

The Star-Telegram of Fort Worth, Texas, reported that two weeks after treatment, the soles of his feet and palms of his hands are softening, his circulation has improved and his right foot is moving.

Dr. Zannos Grekos conducted the experimental treatment in the Dominican Republic because it is not approved in the U.S.

"It looks like we have already saved his legs and arms," Grekos told the Star-Telegram. "Now we're hoping to save most of each foot and his hands."
