The first attempts to bring people back from the dead are slated to start this year.
Bioquark, a Philadelphia-based company, announced in late 2016 that they believe brain death is not 'irreversible'.
And now, CEO Ira Pastor has revealed they will soon be testing an unprecedented stem cell method on patients in an unidentified country in Latin America, confirming the details in the next few months.
To be declared officially dead in the majority of countries, you have to experience complete and irreversible loss of brain function, or 'brain death'.
According to Pastor, Bioquark has developed a series of injections that can reboot the brain - and they plan to try it out on humans this year. They have no plans to test on animals first.
The inaugural stage of the trial will likely follow the plans laid out last year for a trial in India, which was thwarted.
First, they would harvest stem cells from the patient's own blood, and inject this back into their body.
Next, the patient would receive a dose of peptides injected into their spinal cord.
Finally, they would undergo a 15-day course of nerve stimulation involving lasers and median nerve stimulation to try and bring about the reversal of brain death, whilst monitoring the patients using MRI scans.

I have been looking at World leaders and watching how they age , Was checking out John Kerry and his Wife this morning. Either they got a good surgeon or something is up because a few years ago he looked like death.
