Stem Cell Therapy Southern California

California has become one of the main states where people decide to treat themselves with stem cell therapy due to the support provided by the state government so that the progress of this branch of regenerative medicine continues to grow. That is why you can find clinics with good quality.

Many companies like City of Hope recognize the value of these types of therapies in curing or treating diseases. “The potential of regenerative medicine to improve human health is clear, and it's incumbent upon us to make sure that we can deliver these therapies to our patients wherever they are. Right now, though, there are many barriers to access,” said Wang, M.D director of City of Hope.

However, a latent shadow makes it increasingly difficult for this industry to continue developing. It is well known that the FDA has its eyes on stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine in general. Regulations have been in place for years and the FDA has brought cases against clinics.

“In general, we have seen a lot of regulatory action on behalf of and on the part of the FDA and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), whose letters carry particular weight.”  In the same way, some organizations have demanded that the FDA take more severe actions against Stem Cell Therapy.

Stem Cell Los Angeles 

The city in California with the largest number of clinics is Los Angeles, so the vast majority of patients arrive expecting to find clinics with all their permits in order, but sometimes this is not a reality.

In 2018 the FDA “was seeking court orders to stop two clinics from using unapproved stem cell treatments that in some cases have seriously harmed patients.” One of the orders was raised against the California Stem Cell Treatment Center, with locations in Rancho Mirage and Beverly Hills. This clinic “marketed stem cell products to patients without F.D.A. approval while violating current good manufacturing practice requirements, including some that could impact the sterility of their products, putting patients at risk,”  the F.D.A. declared.
