Is This The Cure? What To Do..

Recommended Posts

I am a huge proponent of stem cell research, and I would say the potential is unlimited.  The only thing I would warn you about is that these are very seldom on schedule, and they are still in the development stage, so you could be waiting longer than you would wish.  Some day what we are doing today will be as antiquated as the horse and buggy.

The press release said that their process is set to begin preclinical testing. From Wikipedia, only about 1 in 5,000 treatments/compounds that make it to preclinical testing becomes an approved treatment or drug and usually it takes 5-10 years, sometimes longer.  

I do think we will get there one day, but it is likely to take a long time and will likely be very, very expensive at first. Probably six figures expensive.

We will not see anything like a cure in our generation. I’ve been hearing these claims for 25 years now. My guess is we’re stil 30-40 years away.
