Stem Cells for Hope

On a recent search of the Internet, Google listed Stem Cells for Hope.Com first. Although there are several clinical tests for the use of stem cells for treating macular degenration and retinitis pigmentosa, this one should be viewed with extreme scepticism.

The only clinics they list are in Mexico and the Ukraine.

Claim: RAPID – NO invasive surgery required.

Reality: Stem cells are injected into the eyeball near or onto the retina.

Claim: SAFE – NO risk of transferring infections or other side effects.
Reality: There is always a risk of infection and cell rejection.

A basic statement in their webite.  Stem Cells for Hope accepts Discover, MasterCard, VISA and American Express credit cards.

That seems to be their primary concern.

Since Google listed this site first, I think it is a comment on Google’s ranking system. Be very cautious.
