The 2018 World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos explored the ideas, innovations and discoveries that are reshaping our world by working closely with those in the vanguard of change from such fields as the arts, culture, engineering, media, medicine, science, and technology.
During the past few days, the US-based company BHI Therapeutic Sciences (BHITS)
represented by Brian Mehling, MD, Founder and Chief Medical Officer; Klara Doert,
President of International Business Development; Katarina Novakova, Director of
Relations; and Manuel McDonald, International Consultant attended the annual meeting and participated in conversations, networking events, and attended sessions and panel discussions. This is the sixth year, the organization sent representatives to the meeting.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit; Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations and co-recipient of the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize; Malcolm Stevenson “Steve” Forbes Jr., Editor-in- Chief of Forbes Media; Moira Forbes, EVP at Forbes Media/ Publisher, Forbes Woman; singer, songwriter, dancer and actor Usher; and many CEO’s, Fortune 500 companies C-level executives and government representatives.
BHITS has a treatment and research facility in Bratislava, Slovakia, as well as clinic
facilities in Wuhan, China and Jamaica. The medical team has already successfully
performed 3000 stem cell treatment procedures on more than 1000 patients.
BHITS has conducted several clinical studies testing the safety and efficacy of human umbilical cord blood (hUCB) stem cells. Our clinical studies have provide support for the short and long-term safety of hUCB stem cells for therapy of different medical conditions, including chronic inflammation, musculoskeletal conditions, stroke and spinal cord injury. Our intent is to develop hUCB product based therapies in Investigational New Drug Phase 1 clinical trials in order to extend lifespans and improve the quality of life for patients.
Dr. Mehling explained what stem cells could mean to global health, and how it is creating a future in which many chronic conditions and diseases will be managed with stem cells rather than allopathic medicine or traditional medicine.
“Stem cell treatments are, without a doubt, the future of medicine.” Dr. Mehling states. “It is very important that people making decision on what direction the world will take in regards to research and medical treatments, are educated about not only the possibilities in stem cell research but also about all the treatments that are already available for many patients with different chronic conditions, ” he added.
“By strategically placing our clinic in Slovakia, the heart of Europe, the most innovative research and treatments within the stem cell field is available for the global markets, just 45 minutes away from Vienna International airport, “ said Ms. Novakova.
The theme of this year’s meeting was “Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World.” It was the first time that the forum's annual meeting featured an all-female panel of co-chairs.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi listed his three most significant challenges to
civilization as we know it: climate change, terrorism and the backlash against
Norwegian PM Erna Solberg called for a focus on corruption and illegal money flows and asked for action on gender equality. “Education is the first step”, she said,” making sure that girls take a full part in education.”
BHI Therapeutic Sciences is pioneering ethical, effective, safe and affordable stem cell treatment therapies utilizing cord blood stem cells (those that are harvesting from an umbilical cord in the case of a C-Section, bringing no injury or risk to mother or baby).
Stem cells are a special kind of cell that can be used to regenerate the human body
without drugs or surgery, treating the leading diseases and injuries shortening our life spans and causing millions of people to live in chronic pain.
