FDAs claims over stem cells upheld
Nature ^ | 27 July 2012 | David Cyranoski

A court decision on 23 July could help to tame the largely unregulated field of adult stem-cell treatments. The US District Court in Washington DC affirmed the right of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to regulate therapies made from a patient’s own processed stem cells. The case hinged on whether the court agreed with the FDA that such stem cells are drugs.

The judge concurred, upholding an injunction brought by the FDA against Regenerative Sciences, based in Broomfield, Colorado...

During the occupancy of the Obama Regime your own stem cells are drugs but you can use a dead, murdered baby's stem cells and that's OK.

This crowd is definitely under the influence of demonic forces.

"Tame" the "largely unregulated field" of adult stem cell treatments? Meaning, the field that has found over 70 different cures and successful treatments for pain, suffering, and disability through using the patient's own stem cells?

Why do I get a feeling that after they strangulate this field with regulations, the successful therapies will slow down to a trickle and then stop altogether?

I hate this. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, and face the long-term prospect to advancing pain, deformity and disability. Autologous stem cell therapies have shown remarkable promise, the news of which has encouraged my cautious hopes. Until now.

If your own stem cells are drugs, then say goodbye to anyone ever getting cured with adult stem cells again. If it’s a drug, the FDA has to approve it for human use, which can take years, along with millions of dollars. Everyone’s individual stem cells will be fundamentally different, therefore they will be different drugs. So, everyone that wants to use their own stem cells will have to go through the process individually.

Also, part of the FDA approval process is human trials. Now, you can’t really do a trial with one person’s stem cells on a group of other people. So, if they keep that requirement in place, no adult stem cell treatments would ever get past that phase.

Good point. Now, returning to the idea of how we get our medical care under ObamakKKare ~ and it's pretty obvious we will need to see to it since you can't expect Sibelius and her kind to do anything about it.

First, a small island nation; then a cooperative kidnapping (of appropriate medical personnel who'd like to get rich); then regular flights to and from the island from a state that will protect the passengers.
