In September of 2016 the American Food and Drug Administration will decide whether clinics offering stem cell treatments ought to be more closely regulated. What was once heavily frowned upon, will eventually be made available by clinics across the entire United States.
This battle for a larger acceptance of stem cell treatments has been made possible due to a unified pressure from the medical science community and the large number of people who see these therapies as vital in the treatment of themselves or their loved ones.
Adult stem cells, such as the ones offered by Unique Access Medical in our therapies, offer an enviable promise to many scientists because of their enormous potential to develop into a diverse amount of different cells that can greatly trigger the improvement of many conditions. Research has proven that stem cells are already capable of assisting in the treatment of many diseases, mend damaged tissue and grow replacement organs.
In this blog post we want to thank Ms. Sammy Jo Wilkinson, one of the strongest advocates in the use of stem cells, and founder of a patient group called Patients for Stem Cells.
Ms. Wilkinson will appeal for a faster approval process for treatments that use stem cells at the FDA hearing. As she said herself in an article of the New York Times:
Patients will never get these treatments if they have to go the traditional double-blind placebo-controlled trial route. That takes 10 years and $1 billion. There’s got to be a middle ground,where you don’t shut off treatment, you just keep track of it.”
Suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, we truly hope that Sammy Jo achieves her goal and spreads awareness of the usage of stem cells and of their effectiveness. After undergoing 5 different treatments involving Stem Cells, Ms. Wilkinson is a firsthand witness to the usefulness of treatments such as the ones we offer.
