STEM CELL CLINICAL TRIALS around the WORLD
There are over 200 registered clinical trials currently underway around the world investigating the role that stem cells may play in the various systems of the human body. By using the menu on the left of this screen, you can find out more about the clinical trials for the condition you are interested in.
To use this resource, simply select the condition you are interested in from the categories displayed in the menu. For example, if you are interested in trials for Macular Degeneration, then select 'Vision loss' and 'Macular Degeneration' from the drop down menu. If the condition you are interested in is not listed, please use the search function on the US NIH Clinical Trials website.
This website provides information about current or recently completed stem cell clinical trials but to find out more about each trial click on the 'Link to Clinical Registry' button. You can also click here to see a summary of the stem cell clinical trials in Australia.
It is important to remember that just because a treatment is being evaluated as part of a clinical trial, that does not make it a proven safe and effective therapy. These trials are experimental. Visit What are clinical trials? to learn more.
Please use this listing for your research, but continue to speak to your treating Australiandoctors for independent advice on what is best for you.
The listed trials have been sourced from clinical trials registries including the ANZCTR, NIH, Chinese, European Union and World Health Organization. These websites remain the best place to obtain the most up to date information on clinicial trials. We would like to thank Dr Alexey Bersenev from Cell Trials for sharing his database and acknowledge the support for this site provided by the Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education.
