Dr Steven Sampson was featured on Los Angeles ABC 7 news recently discussing a new clinical trial with Personalized Stem Cells investigating the effects of fat cells on knee arthritis and joint pain. Adipose or belly fat is a rich source of reparative cells and does not deteriorate with age. The field of cell therapy has gotten out of control with unlicensed or untrained physicians providing treatments that are unregulated and unproven. Billboards abound with false claims Industry is now supporting clinical trials to better understand and quantify what cells are being injected and what benefit they may or may not have. Doctors need more tools to help patient seeking to avoid joint replacement as well as more detailed clinical data and research to support these therapies.
