We must remain ever vigilant that no government control takes over Autologous stem cells. FDA is attempting to treat these cells from our own bodies as "drugs", when in other medical situations our tissues and skin and so forth are considered our own...not "drugs"... Autologous adult stem cells are saving lives in so many countries outside of the US an we must demand that we have these same treatments now. Classification as "drug" is NOT ACCEPTABLE.
