Five years ago, 77-year-old William Carl was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. As time progressed, he developed uncontrollable shaking in his hands, knees, back and feet. “When my left hand was shaking it didn’t bother me because I could just put it in my pocket, but when my right hand started shaking, that’s when it bothered me,” he says. Two years after his diagnosis, a friend told William about stem cell therapy, and pointed him to Houston-based Celltex Therapeutics, a company that isolates, grows and banks adult stem cells. He decided to give it a try.

Eller is a graduate of Texas A&M University, who served two terms as Chairman of the Board of Regents and also served as Chancellor of The Texas A&M University System for a short period.

Celltex uses proprietary technology to isolate, multiply and store autologous, adult (one’s own) mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to be used for regenerative therapy in a number of conditions including vascular, autoimmune and degenerative diseases, which is why Sarah was a great candidate for stem cell therapy.
