(San Francisco Chronicle) – When Luane first considered stem cell therapy for Jordan, she asked his neurologist at Stanford about it. I won’t stop you, the doctor told her, but I can’t recommend it. She knew of other parents who had sought out stem cell therapies, the doctor said. None had seen results. By American standards of medicine, there is no proven stem cell therapy for seizures or autism. Anyone claiming otherwise is offering, at best, an untested treatment with unknown benefits and consequences. At worst, they are selling something they know doesn’t work.
