Are Stem Cells Legal?

Are Stem Cells Legal?

Stem cells are produced within a patient’s own body and therefore are perfectly legal to be used in the United States and elsewhere. However, the FDA has determined stem cells that are grown and/or stored for later use, rather than being quickly re-injected, qualify as drugs. Such therapies are not available in the U.S. at this time.

Do You Use Embryonic Stem Cells?

No. Our therapy makes use of adult stem cells from either bone marrow or placenta cord cells. It was once thought that adult stem cells could only create similar cell types, but new research indicates they can be more widely used in the body than previously thought.

Can Stem Cells Cure Degenerative Diseases?

Many researchers have documented extremely promising results from the use of stem cells and hope to one day use the techniques to address Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, sickle cell anemia, organ failure, and more. However, at this time, the scope of stem cell efficacy is limited to certain conditions, and there is great potential in orthopedics.
