Information for patients
Where to look for more information about stem cells, regenerative medicine and clinical trials.
CRM researchers regularly explain their work on stem cells to patient groups and we also host visits to our research labs. If you are part of a patient group and interested in visiting the Centre, please get in touch. Some video presentations are also available on our website.
If you have a specific enquiry related to your disease, please get in touch using the link below. Unfortunately we are unable to give advice on, or recommend a specific treatment, stem cell therapy or clinical trial.

Clinical trials and stem cell treatments
We are unable to give advice on, or recommend a specific treatment or clinical trial. We can however direct you to reliable sources for further information:
www.closerlookatstemcells.org - the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) has developed this website to arm patients, their families and doctors with information they need to make decisions about stem cell treatments. It also includes a patient handbook that contains advice about what you need to think about before participating in any relevant trial in the future and helps you assess whether a private clinic's treatment is safe, legitimate and effective.
www.clinicaltrials.gov - this website is a service of the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) and lists the clinical trials conducted in the United States and around the world. It gives you information about a trial's purpose, who may participate, locations, and phone numbers for more details. However, please note that this website isn't always up to date and does not assess whether a treatment is safe and legitimate.
