Take a look at my book, Stem Cells: An Insider’s Guide.
It is a broad look at the exciting stem cell field, warts and all. I’ve written about the types of stem cells, what goes on in research labs studying these cool cells, biotechs in this area trying to develop safe and effective regenerative medicine products, stem cell clinics, the FDA, and more.
“Are Stem Cells a Drug?
The answer to the question of whether stem cells given to patients as a transplant are a drug is more complicated than you might think. The answer in part depends on not only what the product is and how it is manipulated, but also on both how and when the physician uses it for a medical procedure.”
One fun topic in the book is deciphering the stem cell alphabet soup of acronyms out there (see pic above).
If I have time I plan to do a second edition of the book to update certain parts to what is going on now as this field changes very quickly.
