A Note About Stem Cell Therapies

At this time, the only stem cell-based products that are Food and Drug Administration-approved for use in the United States consist of blood-forming stem cells (hematopoietic progenitor cells) derived from cord blood. While stem cell biology is an active area of research at Penn and other universities, no other treatments have yet been proven safe and effective through clinical trials. The FDA provides updated information about stem cells on its website. More information about stem cell treatments can be found in this patient guide from the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR), a professional body for researchers in the stem cell field.
