The International Society for Stem Cell Research just launched "A Closer Look at Stem Cell Treatments"
. It's a website that arms patients, their families, and doctors with information they need to make decisions about stem cell treatments.
The site includes:
This extensive endeavor, in alignment with the ISSCR mission, was developed by the ISSCR Task Force on Unproven Stem Cell Treatments over concern that stem cell treatments are being marketed to patients worldwide for a variety of medical conditions, without having mechanisms in place to promote safety or likely benefit.
- Top 10 Things to Know about Stem Cell Treatments
- The Patient Handbook on Stem Cell Therapies
- How Science Becomes Medicine
- What to Ask Providers
- And the ability to submit a clinic for them to review
The site will provide resources that explain fundamental scientific principles of stem cell biology and their implications for stem cell treatments, outline the widely accepted process of clinical translation, and provide questions that a patient and/or caregiver should ask purveyors of asserted stem cell treatments to aid them in making treatment decisions."A Closer Look at Stem
