"AN EXCITING LOOK AT AN AMBITIOUS CLINICAL TRIAL THAT AIMS TO CHANGE LIVES FOR THE BETTER."
NICOL NATALE; PREVENTION MAGAZINE
"WHILE CUSTER’S DAILY LIFE GIVES YOU A HINT OF HOW HE LIVES THAT SIX-WORD ['WHAT’S DONE IS DONE. FIGHT ON'] AXIOM, NOTHING SHOWS YOU THE TRUE 'FIGHT ON' ORDEAL QUITE LIKE THE NEW DOCUMENTARY ENDING DISEASE."
TOM ARCHDEACON; DAYTON DAILY NEWS
ABOUT THE FILM
Ending Disease takes you inside a revolution in medicine coming from the first generation of clinical trials for stem cell and regenerative therapies. Medicine is fundamentally changing from treatments to cures, and this film follows the stories of the first patients to receive stem cell and CAR T cell therapy for some of the most vexing diseases known to humanity— cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, HIV/AIDS, paralysis, blindness, and more. After the George W. Bush administration banned federal stem cell research on religious grounds, California passed a ballot initiative that raised $3 billion for research into regenerative medicine. Ending Disease was granted unprecedented access to follow ten of the first clinical trials coming from that research, and the results are groundbreaking, creating exactly the kind of optimism that people are looking for in the midst of this pandemic.
