R3 Stem Cell, LLC, has more than 50 affiliate centers or clinics across the U.S. that offer stem cell products for the above and other unapproved purposes, according to the FDA. The agency says it will continue to prioritize regulatory actions against companies who put people’s lives at risk.
“We continue to see companies and individuals use questionable marketing campaigns to take advantage of vulnerable patients and their families with unproven claims about their unapproved stem cell products,” said FDA Acting Commissioner Ned Sharpless, M.D. “The reality is that at this time, there isn’t enough evidence to support the use of stem cells for purposes other than reconstitution of blood formation and the immune system.”

Stem Cell Treatment: “An Unproven Cure”
Critics of the booming stem cell therapy industry argue that companies like R3 Stem Cell use quasi-scientific claims and unsupported patient testimonials to convince customers that their products can treat and even cure a myriad of health problems for which they have been neither adequately researched or approved to treat. While it is true that doctors and scientists have made some impressive strides in using stem cells to treat a number of complicated ailments, the claims made by R3 Stem Cell and other similar companies are largely bogus and may even be tantamount to fraud, many critics believe.
