I try to answer questions regularly by email, but sometimes the volume catches up with me. For that reason I periodically try to do posts answering such questions, which has …

Stem cell clinic firms often come and go rather quickly, but a few like Regenexx have persisted and even become a brand name. I’ve been writing here on The Niche for more than eleven years about stem cell clinics. Regenexx has been around that whole time. Along with its founder Dr. Chris Centeno. Patients have …

Stem cell therapy reviews: knees, lung, autism, & Regenexx

stem-cell-therapy-reviews

Who decides whether a stem cell therapy is “good” or “bad”, and should that kind of a judgment be more focused on direct patient perspectives such as their stem cell therapy reviews as consumers or based on biomedical science? Both? I’ve written before about how stem cell patients are increasingly thinking of themselves as consumers …

Weekly reads: freeze-dried cloning, FDA signals, stem cell escapees

Human-cloning

Cloning is one of those topics that both fascinates and kind of scares people, especially the idea of duplicating people. I regularly cover the topic here on The Niche because stem cell technologies are involved. Also, one form of the process sometimes called “therapeutic cloning” involves embryonic stem cells. Duplicating mammals has now long been …

Therapeutic misconception & the planned Duke Cryo-Cell cord clinic

Duke Cryo-Cell therapeutic misconception

One of the core problems in the world of unproven stem cell clinics is something called therapeutic misconception. I’ll talk more about that in a minute, but first, let me tell you what brought this to mind now. Surprisingly, the story starts at Duke University. A Duke cell therapy team and the biotech Cryo-Cell have big …

Review of Bioinformant, unproven stem cell clinic promotion, NIH & Pfizer as clients?

Bioinformant stem cell t-shirt

A few years ago a promotional website called Bioinformant popped up in the stem cell arena. It’s very different in some ways than most other stem cell-related websites that I’ve seen. It’s a marketing and promotion site. What’s the backstory? I believe there’s reason for concern here specifically related to Bioinformant promoting unproven stem cell …
