Regulating Stem Cells Treatment
Stem cells treatment are offered for many conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, joint problems, retinal and optic nerves disease, Down's syndrome and multiple sclerosis. So far, conventional medicine uses stem cell for treatment in haematological conditions only. There are not many evidence-based studies on the efficacies of stem cells in other conditions. Yet, many clinics and practitioners offer stem cells therapies.
The FDA will hold hearings on stem cell treatment next year. Let us hope some useful guidelines will come out of this.
