Texas OKs experimental stem cell therapy limits

Will this move by Texas lead to a faster process of FDA approval and insurance coverage? - Boonie

 

My gut says: baby steps. They need to define the IRB process and make sure all the pieces of the machine work well. There are many factors which will unfold now.

Will other states fall after Texas like for medical marijuana?

Will Texas stand alone and all US stem cell companies open clinics there?

Will patients go to a clinic in Texas regulated by an IRB with zero experience over a treatment center outside the US with thousands of successes?

Can the FDA approval process be changed from clinical trial to produce drugs INTO a process oriented hybrid?

Will insurance cover it…ie will the American people, many whom think all stem cells are embryonic still so all stem cells = murder, many whom don’t know about the thousands of trials and tens of thousands patients treated, want to ‘foot the bill’ for these Texas treatments?

Many many questions.

Rome. Built. Not one day.

Baby steps…but a step in the right direction.
