Stem Cells: Myhts and Facts
"STEM CELL MYTH" ABOUT NEUROLOGICAL TREATMENTS: PLEASE STOP MISGUIDING PATIENTS

STEM CELL THERAPY IS NOT YET SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN SAFE OR BENEFITIAL, NOR RECOMMENDED FOR ANY NEUROLOGICAL CONDITIONS. YET HUNDREDS OF PATIENTS ARE BEING TREATED WITH THIS FOR MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, NEUROTRAUMA, PARKINSONS DISEASE ETC ETC.

ICMR SAYS:

9.3 Use of stem cells for therapeutic purposes 9.3.1 As of date, there is no approved indication for stem cell therapy as a part of routine medical practice, other than Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT). Accordingly all stem cell therapy other than BMT (for accepted indications) shall be treated as experimental. It should be conducted only as clinical trial after approval of the IC-SCR/IEC and DCGI (for marketable products). All experimental trials shall be registered with the NAC-SCR.
