Success of adult stem cells buried under media misrepresentation

stem cell research

Stem cell therapies and their lifesaving results are arguably the best kept medical secret. Stem cells are currently being used in several thousand FDA-approved clinical trials, are treating tens of thousands of patients every year, and cumulatively over 1.5 million people have been treated to date. Yet[,] these numbers…and the lifesaving results from stem cells for dozens of conditions…are unknown to most. Why the information blackout?

[T]hose heartening numbers are all due to adult stem cells.

[A recent NYT article] discusses the theoretical nature of stem cell treatments and bemoans the fact that “progress is slow”…Whether through ignorance or bias, the sole focus is clearly on embryonic stem cells. Such writing, however, serves to confuse…the facts about stem cells and therapies.

[T]here are in fact almost 3,500  ongoing or completed clinical trials using adult stem cells…[and] large numbers of patients have been treated with adult stem cells.

The stem cell science deniers continue to denigrate adult stem cells…But for patients, adult stem cells are the true gold standard for stem cells.
