Subsequent to his visit at Nova Southeastern University, TRAIAN has found a new medical treatment consisting of stem cell. This new medication is being conducted in Kiev, Ukraine. TRAIAN is seeking this Honorable Courtâ€™s relief to seek medical treatment outside the United States for this fact. 4. Stem cell treatments are not currently being conducted in the United States. They have not been approved by the FDA and as such, treatment such as the one sought by TRAIAN are not provided in the United States. TRAIAN has been in communications with the EmCell clinic in Kiev, Ukraine and they have been open to conducting medical treatments on TRAIAN. 5. The EmCell clinic is registered with the United States but cannot conduct its medical treatments inside the country due to the regulations with the FDA which have been under review for some time. 6. Denying TRAIAN the opportunity to seek medical treatment of his choice is tantamount to restricting his ability to live. 7. TRAIAN has already commenced treating with the Emcell clinic in Kiev, Ukraine and is currently needing travel for the date of September 18, 2012 to Romania where he has been placed by the Director of the Hepatology Department of Fundeni Hospital, in Bucharest, by Prof. Conf. Florin Caruntu, in a clinical trial. 8. Defense Counsel has not spoken with AUSA Karen Gilbert in regards to this Motion but a prior motion regarding the same issue was not objected and the Government stated that so long as TRAIAN traveled for Medical Treatment purposes they would not object so long as an itinerary was provided to probation. 9. Defense Counsel has spoken with Probation Officer Ms. Bonita Holmes on August 29, 2012 and Probation does NOT object for TRAIAN to travel for medical purposes Page 2 of 3
