    Controversial stem cell clinic closed

    One of the largest and most controversial stem cell clinics in the western world has closed. The XCell-Center at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine, based in Germany, ceased operations on April 21, due to what the Center claims is “a new development in German law”. In October 2010, the UK’s Daily Telegraph reported that the XCell-Center was operating in Germany under a regulatory loophole. (For those looking for more detail on the EU and German legal framework governing regenerative medicine, see this summary.) It would now appear that the German authorities have evaluated the Center under more rigorous rules.
    A quote of what the link leads to would be nice

    There is nothing controversial about stem cell research.

        Thank God, the German gov has seen the light, this clinic has hijacked the internet with patient testimonials, scammed patients dry, and not produced one single ounce of scientific evidence. I feel sad that people on this forum have been dupped into this sad situation.When reading clinic testimonials
        use wisdom over desperation

          The saddest part of this is that stem cell therapies have proven viability in other types of treatment. This bad publicity simply discredits the whole filed and people (and governments) will be less willing to contribute to the wider field of research.

              Mum of autistic boy 'in shock' over stem-cell centre closure

              By Edel O'Connell


              Monday May 09 2011

              A MOTHER who raised more than €30,000 for experimental treatment for her autistic son is "in shock" after the controversial centre where he received his treatment was closed down.

              Deirdre O'Dwyer's eight-year-old son Evan suffers from a rare neurological disorder which means the left side of his brain has failed to develop properly.

              Evan, from the Commons Road, Cork, also developed severe epilepsy and autism as a result of the disorder.

              His mother took him to Germany last week to undergo stem-cell treatment at the XCell Centre in Dusseldorf.

              However, the centre -- which offers unlicensed treatments -- has closed after being ordered to cease operating by German authorities.

              "I am very frightened now," said Mrs O'Dwyer, who felt the centre gave her son a "chance" by offering treatment he could not get elsewhere.

              "I need to know exactly what happened here. We just wanted our son to have the best possible chance," she said.

              The German centre claims its technique for stem-cell transplantation has had success in treating 17 different diseases, including cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, autism and spinal-cord injuries.

                  Sad News of XCell Centre Closure

                  I'm really sad to hear that the wonderful XCell Centre has closed as my Son with Cerebral Palsy had a very successful treatment there back in 2009. It's May 2011 now and the first signs of success took about a year to manifest, and things just keep getting better. We didn't document it because I never owned a camcorder, but I read the negative reviews too, and believe me, they are just that.....negative!

                    X-Cell could have simply published scientific data. Is it that hard to publish data when you charge $000s for a therapy? If they did that the "negativity" would cease. But, they refused to. And therefore you have to question their efficacy and ethics. They treated 1000s of patients annually without contributing a single shred of data to the scientific community - is that ethical?

                    Dr Kleinboesem is probably enjoying his yacht, Ferrari and villa in Monaco as we speak plotting the next incarnation of X-Cell or Cells4Health in Europe.

                      Sad you said that this clinic has been shut down Wow as if this clinic did charity

                      this clinic is world known for selling at a very high price snake oil hope and and believe me only interested in your money i am not being negative bit damm right sad. I have and will continue to post against clinics like these and the over inflated and unproven news about cures ect....
                      It is unfair to post that your son,s recovery is due to treatment given at this clinic. they never publish anything except propaganda and testimonials, it is not in their interest to publish scientific proof because they don't have any. Sad that people had to die for this clinic to be closed down, sadder still that people still want this clinic open.

                        Brings up the whole question of "how do we make a decision?" Some will say it's easy, it's a con, so ignore it. Unfortunately a costly eating of the pudding is not what is needed.

                        Clearly if this Doctor is as guilty as indicated here, a prison seems more appropriate than a little break in Monaco.

                        Let's see:

                        1 Criminal deception.
                        2 Unethical practice = removed from medical register.
                        3 Probable medical malpractice.
                        4 Manslaughter.

                        These are issues for the community at large, and particular the internet. Just how far can censorship be applied? and how answerable can be a website be for injurious or intentionally misleading claims?

                          Chris
                          Believe me this clinic will open up again somewhere elce under a new name and new management this time round in a country which is not keen on health legislation. Same as Rader of Medra did he first opened in Mexico and now in the Domenican so called banana republic.
                          Easy money from desperate people is too tempting to refuse.
                          Give some people shit call it stem cells and they wil still believe it's a cure further still they will sorrogote the propaganda for you

                            Proven right from my last post

                            yes they have opened in Lebanon in the land of the Hizbollah


                            Dear Patient

                            It has been a long time ago that you heard from us since you were at the XCell-Center in Germany for your therapy with stem cells. We, my wife Margriet and me, had personally a very bad time after our dismissal as the CEO and director of XCell-Center in April this year. Our work which has all our spirit and was our life was ruined by false accusations and allegations. It is a bitter experience with somebody you think you know well since 20 years.
                            Anyway, to speak with Steve Jobs after his dismissal at Apple in 1985 and starting his next company: ‘it is not the company I love, but the work’. We are also passionate for the adult stem cell therapy and we love this work to be able to help many patients around the globe, who are desperate for this breakthrough treatment. At the same time we realize that there is a lot of resistance from the medical community towards stem cell therapy for pure economical reasons. Their lobby is very strong, making it almost impossible to provide stem cell therapy in US and Europe.
                            This however has not withheld us to look for alternatives around the globe. Today we are proud to announce that we have established a stem cell treatment center in Lebanon, close to Beirut. Mr. Kamal and Nadim Atweh, two very knowledgeable health care professionals are leading the team in Lebanon. We work together with medical specialists, including neuro-surgeons, neurologists, radiologists, internists, orthopedic surgeons, pediatricians and anesthetists, depending on what is required in your personal situation. The samples are processed in our partner laboratory in the UK, in London, which is fully GMP licensed and works under the HTA (Human Tissue Act). So we offer these therapies with German quality standards and our proven methodology as you know from us. The team is completed with Dr. Mustapha Bennay and Juango Olivar in Germany and Rishabh Mehta in India to organize the treatments, to facilitate the communication and to ensure that the therapy is done in the best possible way.
                            In the mean time we were able also to provide stem cell therapy not only from bone marrow derived stem cells, but also from adipose tissue, thereby expanding the possibilities. Also anti aging and storage of cells for future use is now available from us in many countries.
                            If you would have any questions, or wish to get information about the new treatment possibilities in Lebanon, we and our team are always ready to answer your questions. We would be also very thankful for any recommendations to other patients.
                            Hopefully we would have the possibility to stay in touch in the next future.
                            With kindest regards
                            Dr. C. Kleinbloesem CEO
                            M. Kleinbloesem- van der Kolk Director Customer Care
