Researchers believe they're getting closer to getting approved stem cell treatments on the market, but it takes time.
The regulatory principles that apply for the clinical development of conventional therapies also apply to regenerative medicines.
Researchers at the National Institutes of Health have devised a four-part small-molecule cocktail that can protect stem cells called induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from stress and maintain normal stem cell structure and function.

Researchers at the University of Southampton have developed a new way of using nanomaterials to identify and enrich skeletal stem cells - a discovery which could eventually lead to new treatments for major bone fractures and the repair of lost or damaged bone.
Regenerative medicine is a multidisciplinary field that seeks to develop the science and tools that can help repair, augment, replace, or regenerate damaged or diseased human cells, tissues, genes, organs, or metabolic processes, to restore normal function.
Stem cell research regularly generates hot debates over its ethics. A new therapy that has repaired the spinal cords of more than a dozen patients is raising eyebrows for both good and bad reasons. Why is stem cell therapy so controversial?
