What should I look for if I am considering a stem cell therapy? 

You need to be sure that there is good scientific evidence that the treatment is safe and effective, that your rights as a patient are being respected. To begin, ask evidence that:

  • Preclinical studies have been published, reviewed and repeated by other experts in the field.
  • The providers have approval from an independent committe such as an Institutional Review Board or Ethics Review  Board to make sure the risks are as low as possible and are worth any potential benefits, and that your rights are being protected.
  • The providers have approval from a national or regulatory agency, such as the Food and Drug Administration or the European Medicines Agency for the safe conduct of clinical trials or medical use of a product for this disease

Some smaller research studies may not need this level of regulatory approval, but must have approval from an independent review committee and support from the clinical and administrative leadership where the procedure will be done
