We hope to use this model with other countries to provide greater transparency and oversight to this promising field.
Portland, OR (PRWEB) March 04, 2012
The International Cellular Medicine Society (ICMS), working in collaboration with Sociedad Mexicana de Medicina Regenerativa (SOMMER), has developed a brief overview of the legal use of stem cells in Mexico. What makes the overview important is the fact that this is the first time an independent organization has summarized Mexican stem cell regulations in a single document.
Based on health care laws recently recommended by the Mexican Senate Health Committee, the new legislation gives patients who seek stem cell treatment a clearer picture of which stem cell providers comply with national standards and allows primary care physicians in the U.S. to recommend Mexican health care with a greater sense of confidence.
“We hope to use this model with other countries to provide greater transparency and oversight to this promising field,” said Mr. David Audley, Executive Director of ICMS.
