‘Is There A Stem Cell Bubble?’ Liveyon CEO, Education Director Discuss The State Of The Regenerative Industry

Insiders Provide Real Solutions To The Tough Problems Plaguing The Industry

In a recent episode of the Liveyon ‘Pure-Cast,’ John Kosolcharoen, founder and CEO of Liveyon, and Dr. Alan Gaveck, Director of Education, examined the state of the regenerative industry—breaking down some of the most pressing problems plaquing the stem cell field and offering real solutions.

The crucial question asked on Liveyon’s ‘Pure-Cast,’ a video podcast focusing on uncovering the truth about the emerging field of regenerative medicine, was “Is there a stem cell bubble?”

Comparing the industry to the housing market, Kosolcharoen agreed a bubble does exist due to emerging companies in search of a profit at the cost of cutting regulatory corners.

“I think there is a stem cell bubble,” Kosolcharoen said on the show. “You know when you see companies popping up all over the place, when you see a stem cell clinic on every corner, when you see advertisers in papers and people just in it for the money. It’s kind of been this smash and grab with the labs out there that we found that have been, just not doing things correctly and cutting corners.”

Kosolcharoen brought light to companies conducting fraudulent testing and doctoring numbers to enhance their brand while promoting a faulty product—and called for manufactures to take more responsibility.

“We see fraudulent testing, where companies had a test done and then we found fraudulent documentation and tweaking of some of the numbers to make themselves look better,” Kosolcharoen said. “I think all of those things will catch up to the industry and the FDA is going to have to come in and put some type of heavy regulation it.”

But Kosolcharoen offered a silver lining, saying further FDA regulation will clean up the industry and drive out fraudulent companies. In fact, the FDA has said it will further investigate and enforce regulations of stem cell companies in November 2020.

While these fraudulent companies ravage the regenerative industry, Liveyon continues to provide an innovative take on product research, development, manufacturing and distribution, while prioritizing a commitment to safety and transparency. Founded in 2016, Liveyon and Liveyon Labs Inc. are committed to achieving unparalleled stem cell potency through high live nucleated cell counts, while following validation protocols that produce an extremely consistent product for the most efficacious outcomes. The company’s dynamic ability to adapt to changing market trends and execute on opportunities has fortified its exponential growth and the company is poised to continue making a huge impact in the industry 2019.

This site was intended for education purposes only and strictly for use by medical professionals. The FDA recently re-confirmed, there is only one registered stem cell product, and while there is enormous promise in stem cell therapies, and thousands of ongoing experimental applications trying to establish efficacy, these are not at the point where they would meet the scientific standard.
The FDA has stated:
Stem cells, like other medical products that are intended to treat, cure or prevent disease, generally require FDA approval before they can be marketed. FDA has not approved any stem cell-based products for use, other than cord blood-derived hematopoietic progenitor cells (blood forming stem cells) for certain indications.

This site is not intended for consumers.
If you are considering stem cell treatment in the U.S., ask your physician if the necessary FDA approval has been obtained or if you will be part of an FDA-regulated clinical study. This also applies if the stem cells are your own. Even if the cells are yours, there are safety risks, including risks introduced when the cells are manipulated after removal.
“There is a potential safety risk when you put cells in an area where they are not performing the same biological function as they were when in their original location in the body.” Cells in a different environment may multiply, form tumors, or may leave the site you put them in and migrate somewhere else.
If you are considering having stem cell treatment in another country, learn all you can about regulations covering the products in that country. Exercise caution before undergoing treatment with a stem cell-based product in a country that—unlike the U.S.—may not require clinical studies designed to demonstrate that the product is safe and effective. FDA does not regulate stem cell treatments used solely in countries other than the United States and typically has little information about foreign establishments or their stem cell products.

Stem cell therapies have enormous promise, but the science in each use is still in the developmental stage. Professional judgment and expertise is needed in using stem cells for any therapeutic use, and we urge anyone embarking on the use of stem cell therapies to consult the national health data bases to evaluate current information from clinical trials and the FDA websites on human tissue should also be consulted to get its current evaluation of any therapy.
