FDA “Power Play”: Stem Cell Struggle

Stem cells are being used with increasing frequency to treatment many medical conditions.

Unfortunately the FDA has taken the position that the stem cells in your body are prescription drugs subject to regulation and control.  The Centeno-Schultz Clinic believes otherwise as we believe stem cells are body parts to be used by doctors for healing.  Accordingly we have decided to challenge the FDA’s position.  This has turned out to be a landmark case against FDA which will determine the limits of its power for years to come and ultimately decide the pace at which stem cells come into common medical use by physicians.

A local Denver magazine (5280) examined the landmark  nature of our struggle.

“Power Play: A Front Range M.D. has developed a potentially revolutionary treatment for orthopedic injuries. So why is the FDA trying to stop him?”
