New York Stem Cell Summit Issues Adult Stem Cell Fact Sheet

WAYNE, Pa., Sept. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The New York Stem Cell Summit is releasing effective today an Adult Stem Cell Fact Sheet to help the press and the general public understand more accurately the role that autologous stem cell therapies play in medicine in the United States today.

Approximately 1 million patients have been treated with their own stem cells since the mid-1980s in the United States.

Harvesting stem cells from adult patients and then re-injecting them into the same patient (autologous stem cell use) has been a routine therapy in U.S. medicine for decades. More recently, as stem cell research has developed, the precise method of harvesting, processing and then re-injecting into patients has changed and improved.

In this fact sheet, organizers of The New York Stem Cell Summit describe the purpose of autologous and allograft stem cells in medicine, the history of autologous stem cell therapies in the United States, the number of companies that are supplying equipment to facilitate autologous stem cell therapies in the United States, the size of this as a commercial business, the future of these therapies and then a short bibliography of clinical studies regarding the use of adult stem cells in the United States.

Copies of the Adult Stem Cell Fact Sheet may be obtained by either requesting it from (888-749-2153) or by downloading it from
