A district court judge in Florida just issued a permanent injunction against U.S. Stem Cell, a Sunrise, Fla., clinic that has used stem cells from fat tissue (adipose) to treat a variety of illnesses. This clinic manufactures Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) from tissue obtained via liposuction. This tissue is then exposed to an enzyme that breaks down the structural component of fat and releases many different cells including a small portion of stem cells.
Under the terms of the injunction, the clinic is prohibited from making or marketing these extracts unless it meets the FDA’s standards for good manufacturing practice.
This is another victory against the dangerous and ineffective so-called stem cell therapies peddled by rogue clinics. We’ve written about this before and will continue to address the topic because these bad characters are not legitimate stem cell clinics.
Stem Cell Arts is the real deal. Our physicians are trained and licensed to perform Regenexx® Stem Cell therapy, which extracts healthy, living adult stem cells from your own body, concentrates these cells at the highest level possible and reinjects them into the injured area to boost your body’s ability to naturally promote healing. Our protocols for harvesting and processing stem cells are totally compliant with all FDA regulations.
The Florida ruling is a step in the right direction, but sadly, there are still clinics across the country that prey on the sick and the elderly by making false claims about their stem cell “treatments.” Clinics that use birth tissues (amniotic or cord tissues) are the modern-day equivalent of snake oil salesmen. They promise to inject patients with millions of live stem cells to treat chronic and sometimes incurable diseases, when in fact, birth tissue usually contains few—if any—viable stem cells. This is a critical distinction because in order to be effective healing agents, stem cells must be alive.
