Not a Miracle Cure Yet

Filed under: News — lmwalker @ 5:55 pm

A group of British scientists are trying to spread the word that stem cell “therapy” could be less than promised:

A group of leading British scientists warned patients today to be wary of “extravagant” claims made for “unorthodox” stem cell treatments offered abroad . . .

“[T]here is concern that these unproven treatments could be dangerous, potentially exposing patients to the risk of uncontrolled and inappropriate tissue generation.”

I doubt that women in search of a fountain of youth or desperate victims of multiple sclerosis will pay much attention.

  1. On a related note, I heard that this new fangled method of embryonic stem cell research that only needs to take ‘1 cell’ … well in their studies they have taken more than one cell, and all the embryos they took from died. Well so what if it is a new and improved way to kill, it is still growing people to kill them. This is a sick society. Science without ethics is a horrible mess.

  2. Just to be provocative, I’ll note that you’ve gotta start somewhere.
