Watch Out for Unapproved Stem Cell Therapies!


Have you seen ads or attended a seminar for
stem cell therapies that claim to be able to treat diseases like chronic joint pain,
Alzheimer’s, cancer and more? Don’t believe it. You may be told stem cells, including those
from fat, amniotic fluid or umbilical cord, like cord blood or Wharton’s Jelly, are
a miracle treatment. You may even hear they are FDA approved. But that is not true. None are proven to work to treat these conditions
and worse, some may cause harm. The FDA has not approved stem cell therapies
for treating these serious conditions. The FDA has only approved a stem cell product
for treating certain blood disorders. Beware! Unapproved stem cell therapies have led to
serious infections, blindness, and death. If you are considering a stem cell therapy
in the U.S. or outside the U.S., ask questions. Visit FDA.gov to find helpful information
and questions to ask in the FDA’s Consumer Update about stem cell therapies. Protect your health! Don’t become the victim of dishonest and
dangerous stem cell clinics.
