Alert: IDFPR Warns Public About Unproven Stem Cell Therapy
Posted on: 6/13/2019

The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) is warning patients about unproven stem cell treatment.

Specifically, IDFPR is warning patients to avoid stem cell therapy treatments administered by chiropractors or others who are not licensed to provide this therapy without collaboration with a physician, doctor of osteopathy or other authorized healthcare professional.

Patients should verify that the healthcare professional is properly licensed and trained to administer stem cell therapy treatments.

The department is currently investigating several complaints related to this treatment.

For information about bacterial infections from stem cell products, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention maintains a Contaminated Stem Cell Products web page.
