Adult Stem Cells

  • Recently a paper issued in the Cell Stem Cell by Paul Knoepfler cat med tourismand Leigh Turner caused a lot of commotion, since the research of the authors brought to light, that already over 500 illegal stem cell clinics operate in the US, largely since the legislation written by the FDA is unclear and simply not concise enough, to act as a deterrant for them opening them and creating a business.

    Of course- there are safety issues, as always and the issue of limited research having been done, but on the other hand - one does not hear all that much of calamities or patients dying after being treated by those clinics.  

    Anyway- my personal attitude is, that changes are necessary- there should be FDA involvement and control, but also much improved access to new developments by patients is necessary, similar to the Managed Access Program as existent in Europe or like the new legislation in Japan.

    In respect of blog RSS feeds of the Clinics below, I can vouch for with my good name, since they are led by scientists or enterpreneurs of excellent reputation, who only apply proven and safe applications of ASC therapy.

  • CYTX is the Nasdaq symbol for Cytori Therapeutics, a struggling SC Company located in San Diego, CA, who´s Management and BOD has unfortunately made many mistakes in realizing the potential of the technology. Fas still believes their fortunes will change dramatically.

  • This page is the news section of my web publishing activities.  Thereby I thought a few years ago, that I could "hammer" this together in a few days by simply selecting some news feeds (or RSS/XML files) of the cell therapy information sources, that I have learned to appreciate over the years whilst dealing with and studying "regenerative medicine" in general.

    That- as a lot of things in life- was a bit opportunistic, but alas, a few years older, a bit more experienced and now the tech seems to work for me and it just is now- mid 2016- a matter of energy and available time to present an always up-to-date source of news on adult regenerative cells, which covers most there is and is adequate for different levels of users.

    My (presently under-appreciated) empire of websites dealing with regenerative medicine consist mid 2016, of a site - - which deals with the most promising technology  in the space from my perspective (i.e. Point-of-care, same day procedure of fresh cells sourced from Adipose tissue). I call this technology "holistic medicine", since it mimics the natural way the body heals its self in case of acute injury.
