medical tourismAccording to international health experts, stem-cell tourism involving patients traveling to developing countries for treatment with unproven and potentially risky therapies should be more strictly regulated.

 
With hundreds of medical centers around the world who claim to repair damaged tissue in conditions such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease, tackling crooked advertising of such procedures is crucial. These therapies are advertised directly to patients with the promise of a cure, but there is often little or no evidence to show they will help, or that they will not cause any harm. Many potential therapies are only in the nascent stages of development and have not been approved by international regulators.

 
Led by the World Health Organization, experts called for global action, to introduce controls on advertising and initiate international standards for the manufacture and testing of cell and tissue-based therapies.
