In August of 2017, the New York Times published an article about the FDA crackdown on stem cell clinics in the United States offering unapproved stem cell therapies. According to the FDA, there are currently only a limited number of FDA approved stem cell therapies including therapies involving bone marrow, for bone marrow transplants in cancer care, and cord blood for specific blood-related disorders. The FDA has not approved any stem cell treatments for other diseases. One of the clinics cited in the article was using unapproved therapies to treat cancer patients in Beverly Hills. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/28/health/fda-stem-cell.html
