FDA Just Reaffirmed That You Can’t Use Umbilical Cord Blood in Orthopedics Without A Drug License Or Specific Permission Thru a RMAT Or Other FDA Program
FDA clearly states that umbilical cord blood is NOT exempt from registering as a biologics drug under section 351.
FDA states that “….using the umbilical cord blood products to treat orthopedic conditions is not homologous use as defined in 21 CFR 1271.3(c).”
Further proof that Umbilical cord blood/amniotic fluid/Wharton’s Jelly are NOT” stem cell” injections
Here is an amazingly thorough review of the advertising, marketing, and doctor fraud associated with selling umbilical cord blood, amniotic fluid, and Wharton’s Jelly as “stem cell injections”, whether used for Autism or any other diagnosis. There are NO significant functional stem cells in these products.
Our patient in this video is 2 years after a single stem cell injection for knee arthritis. We only use bone marrow derived stem cells because any supposed “stem cell” injections from umbilical cord blood, or amniotic fluid or Wharton’s Jelly or placental tissues have been shown to not actually have living stem cells.
Dallas PRP and Stem Cell Institute specializes in Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and stem cell (from your own bone marrow) procedures for orthopedic conditions like arthritis, back pain, sports injuries. Most procedures are done in the office in less than an hour. We help patients interested in avoiding surgery. We also help patients avoid getting scammed by unscrupulous clinics delivering products that are not really stem cell injections or that are not properly registered with the FDA.
Here is a link to a recent expert consensus statement on these birth tissue products that are being sold to doctors as patients as “stem cell” products. They are not. It is a scam. Over 20 medical doctors, PhDs, and researchers from major USA universities and practices have all signed on to a consensus statement that these products do NOT contain living stem cells.
I have been repairing virtually all meniscus injuries and adding an orthobiologic injection to maximize healing. This combination of surgery + stem cells has been shown to result in better healing rates of the meniscus and allows me to “save” more meniscus tears for patients than I could before. The video is a 60 sec clip showing how we can repair a bad meniscal injury a young patient and get it to heal about 90% of the time by adding a stem cell injection.
