Lieff Cabraser is investigating widespread complaints about stem cell clinics offering unproven and potentially hazardous “stem cell” treatments for a long list of diseases, including the selling of dead cells as live ones. Companies including U.S. Stem Cell Clinic, California Stem Cell Treatment Center, R3 Stem Cell, LLC (Regenexx) are alleged to be illegally administering therapies labeled stem cell treatments. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has determined that these treatments are illegal, and that none of the claimed positive results for conditions including diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, brain trauma, and COPD have been validated.
U.S. Stem Cell Clinic’s response to the allegations was only that its treatments fall outside the FDA’s jurisdiction and did not work to bring their practices into conformity with “current good manufacturing practice” as is required. Reports by the New England Journal of Medicine describe patient outcomes at U.S. Stem Cell Clinic as “catastrophic,” with results that include permanent blindness in procedures that demonstrate “a complete lack of regard to patient safety and any sort of scientific integrity.
