Frequently Asked Questions

Is Stem Cell Therapy Safe?

Your physician will review the possible risks in the Consent Form, which is reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for each clinical trial. Clinical trials with related products using stem cells derived from adipose tissue indicate that adipose-derived stem cells have a very good safety profile.

Is Stem Cell Therapy Covered by Insurance?

Stem cell clinical trials are not typically covered by insurance. The cost of diagnosis and post-treatment visits or therapy may be covered. You should review coverages with your insurance carrier prior to enrollment in the clinical trial.

What Medications or Treatments can be Used with Stem Cell Therapy?

Your doctor will review your current medications as part of the eligibility screening process for the clinical trial.
