Safety and Compliance
Is regenerative cell therapy safe?
Regenerative cell therapy at GIOSTAR Chicago is safe. Of the over 14,000 patients treated at GIOSTAR, no one has had an adverse reaction to the therapy.
The medical team at GIOSTAR follow the same FDA guidelines used for the administration of bone marrow transplants in the treatment of sickle cell anemia and leukemia for your regenerative cell therapy. To protect your health, your specialist follows these strict guidelines during the extraction, isolation, and re-administration of your regenerative cells.
For regenerative cell therapy at GIOSTAR Chicago, the specialists use your own stem cells, referred to as autologous therapy, which means you’re less likely to have an adverse reaction to treatment since the cells came from your own body.
The medical team at GIOSTAR Chicago also have years of experience extracting and administering these cells. They caution against medical centers that make false claims about the benefits of regenerative therapy and encourage you to educate yourself about the treatment itself and your provider so you get the best and safest results.
PATIENTS BEWARE: Some providers may have only attended a seminar about regenerative medicine and might not have the right equipment to properly extract the stem cells from your sample, or may not have the proper conditions to store and re-administer the cells without the risk of infection. Other centers may be using outdated or non-compliant lab equipment to count the stem cells which may be counting debris and dead cells as well. Administering dead stem cells to a patient can cause a blood clot to form and put the patient at risk for a heart attack or stroke. Some providers may be administering allogenic (donor cells) in the United States which, under FDA guidances, is not acceptable. Providers may be allowing for chiropractors or even physicians to process the cells without the use of a state-of-the-art lab and trained lab biologist, which also poses a huge concern to a patient’s safety.
GIOSTAR Chicago follows a very strict protocol that includes pre- and post-treatment care, as well as periodic monitoring and follow-up after treatment.
While stem cell therapy isn’t FDA approved, the specialists at GIOSTAR Chicago adhere to the scientific and ethical guidelines set up by the National Institute of Health (NIH), International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR), and International Society for Cell & Gene Therapy (ISCT) for best practices and to ensure your safety.
