Yes, we definitely believe so. We are sticking our reputation on that. Dozens of studies around the world speak of their safety. Animal testing says so, FDA clinical trials speak of their safety. Hundreds of patients treated globally says yes.
The cells undergo purity, safety, infection, body compatibility (HLA Testing), virus, and dozens of other tests to ensure their safety and purity. Prior to treatment, as part of our inclusion criteria, all patients take several blood tests to ensure they are physically prepared to receive cells.

There is always an exception; however, with the right steps in place Novastem is currently working with Clínica Santa Clarita which is licensed by federal authorities. They specialize in stem cell research and therapy, and the stem cells we import from Stemedica, a biopharmaceutical company based in San Diego, have been produced under a license from the California Food and Drug Branch. The stem cells are delivered to each patient via intravenous infusion with no known side effects.
