California is one of six states that actively supports stem cell research. California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) was formed in 2004 when voters approved proposition 71. The mission of CIRM is to accelerate stem cell treatments to patients with unmet medical needs. Research grant recipients include academic centers and medical companies focused on researching methods of transplantation, new drugs and improved diagnostics. With the goal of supporting research programs focused on creating cures, the institute is currently funding 43 clinical trials.
Before 2009, federal government funding restrictions prevented scientists from advancing stem cell research in the United States. Legislation such as proposition 71 was greatly needed to provide scientists with the financial support to pursue research for the advancement of stem cell and regenerative medicine. In the United State federal funding restricted the advancement of stem cell research while globally stem cell research continued with hundreds of studies published each year. The Stem Cells Transplant Institute in Costa Rica is one of the leaders is stem cell therapy.
To date, the only FDA approved stem cell therapies in the United States include bone marrow for bone marrow transplants and cord blood for certain blood disorders.
