MD Stem Cells periodically provides updates about the studies or results via press releases. Press releases can provide information quickly and help patients hear about particular diseases and certain results. Although these are not at the same level as actual journal submissions, they are reporting genuine information that can help patients make decisions about participation. Patients should always understand that results for a particular intervention, medical treatment, approved drug, medical device or surgery cannot be specifically predicted for an individual.
