Stem cell treatments...
Several months ago, in an effort to help patient understanding and navigation of the very new and untested waters of stem cell therapy, PHA’s Scientific Leadership Council produced a statement and fact sheet on this subject.
Recently, we heard from Nick Hill, M.D. who leads the PH Center at Tufts University. He wrote to make us aware of valuable new information for patients produced by the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR). They offer three wonderful new tools: the Top 10 Things to Know About Stem Cell Treatments, the ISSCR Patient Handbook and How Science Becomes Medicine. We took these items to leadership of PHA's Scientific Leadership Council and have just posted mutual links with ISSCR to make this material available to you.
We hope they are helpful to anyone trying to understand the current state of the stem cell world..
