Airdrian says costly treatment a scam

An Airdrie man feels he has been duped out of thousands of dollars after receiving treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS).

Lee Chuckry, who has been dealing with MS for almost 20 years, says his symptoms have worsened since he received experimental, stem-cell therapy in India in 2013 from Regenetek Research INC, a Winnipeg-based company led by CEO Doug Broeska.

Its gotten much worse, said Chuckry of his condition, an autoimmune disorder that damages the insulating covers of nerve cells, leading to a wide range of symptoms and permanent neurological damage.

Chuckry explained he was diagnosed with MS about 20 years ago and is now dependant on a motorized scooter to get around.

The 47-year-old Airdrie man originally found Broeskas study online.

I was hoping for something that would put the breaks on the disease, said Chuckry.

Now, Chuckry is questioning Broeskas credentials as a medical researcher.

I did do my due diligence before going to India, and I thought everything was on the up and up, said Chuckry.

Chuckry explained since returning from India, where he spent $34,000 to receive the therapy, which consisted of widening the veins in his neck and injecting stem cells, he has experienced three MS attacks.
