Credit to our colleagues and TOBI 2021 Alumni Speakers: John Ferrell, Prathap Jayaram, and William Murrell for a very transparent and articulate discussion of treatments we commonly perform. This is a unique story as one of the 1st press articles that distinguish the difference between “Stem Cell Therapies” from traditional autologous orthobiologics.
All too often PRP, BMC, MFAT are lumped into the discussion of bad actors in the “stem cell” industry offering unproved/prohibited products without scientific merit exploiting vulnerable patients. The participants did a great job explaining the current landscape and the road ahead.
As natural-based biologic solutions collectively move towards mainstream and standardization; narratives like this are important to inform the public on regulatory, scientific research, challenges, and great potential of these treatments.
