Mexican doctor considered world leader in immunotherapy

  • In 2022 he was awarded the official recognition of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II for his services to hematology.
  • The specialist is a leader in the research and application of stem cell transplants that have saved hundreds of lives.
  • Their contribution could be applied to cell regeneration in people with diabetes or severe burns.

Being able to stand out at the national level in a federation as complex as the health sector is difficult enough. There are many trained specialists with wide experience. And doing it globally is even more difficult for the same reasons. Despite the above, there is one Mexican doctor who achieved this and is today considered a World leader in immunotherapy.

in this case it is Dr. Alejandro Madrigal Fernandez, who leads research on cell therapy in stem cell transplantation. In fact, thanks to his work, he has saved hundreds of patients from various types of cancer, informed the Director General National Rehabilitation Institute (INR) “Luis Guillermo Ibarra Ibarra”, Carlos Pineda Villaseñor.

He also highlighted the contribution of scientist Madrigal Fernandez Advances in cell therapy can be applied in the field of gerontological biotechnology. Also for cell regeneration in people with diabetes or in people with severe burns.

The most recent global advances in immunotherapy are led by a Mexican

During a presentation, Madrigal Fernandez reported that clinical trials conducted by his working group found that Stem cells have the ability to self-renew. In addition, they produce various components that may work as an anti-inflammatory treatment and for injuries or ulcers in people with diabetes.

To restore them to normal function, treat their disease, and achieve their cure.

He indicated that in the world More than 1.5 lakh patients have been treated with stem cell transplantation, of which 50% have survived.
