FDA concern over unproven treatments

Controversial cure Tuesday...

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. - In August, the FDA announced it had seized four vials of vaccine administered to patients in San Diego and Rancho Mirage by California Stem Cell Treatment center.

CBS Local 2's Brooke Beare investigated the claims, and spoke with Dr. Elliot Lander about the work being done by his team, and stem cell researchers around the world.

Watch her report #controversialcure, Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. on CBS Local 2.

Dr. Elliot Lander received a standing ovation at a hearing for FDA guidelines in Sept. 2016.  Of the hearing, he says "The industry has put enormous pressure on the FDA to regulate these minor surgical procedures that are done in physician offices as a drug production and manufacturing which has super stringent requirements for sterility (beyond surgical sterility). Such arbitrary rules essentially outlaw the procedures if guidance language is approved."
