DALLAS, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- To protect potential patients from being unwitting victims in the proliferation of less than competent therapeutics, the Repair Stem Cell Institute LLC (RSCI) (http://www.RepairStemCells.org) and its Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) today announced the establishment of the industry's first standards of excellence for Repair Stem Cells(TM) (RSC) treatment centers worldwide who are using RSC, also known as Adult Stem Cells. Among the critical ethical criteria, which are required for facilities to be qualified for the RSCI's list of top treatment centers, are licensing and certification of the treating doctors by their country's medical professional regulatory board.
According to Don Margolis (email@example.com; 214-556-6377), founder and chairman of the RSCI, "Regrettably, there is a wave of offshore commercially available less-than-competent stem cell therapeutic practitioners. Their bogus, unwanted extravagant claims, which tout the potential of their stem cell wonder tonics, are hurting the image of the scientifically honest treatment centers that are truly helping people with more than 100 medical conditions.
"It's the responsibility of the RSCI and members of our SAB to establish the industry's first standards of excellence at the highest level for RSC treatment centers worldwide to meet and abide by," Mr. Margolis said. "We must assure people seeking life-changing stem cell therapies that they can expect to receive the best quality therapeutics from the facilities they diligently research."
Along with licensing and certification, the RSCI stipulates stem cell
treatment centers must have a successful record of treating patients with
RSC for a minimum of six months. The RSC must be either autologous (from
the body of the patient) or from umbilical cords. Any other source must be
clearly labeled "experimental" until there is a completed succes
