Stem cell therapy is one step closer to becoming law in Texas, the latest state to push for passage of a patients’ “Right to Try” legislation. House Bill (HB) 810 is one of three proactive stem cell bills being considered in the Texas Legislature that would make it easier for those suffering with incurable illnesses to have access to stem cell treatments. The bill, which passed the Texas House unanimously, now heads over to the Senate.
Scott Wolf, CEO and Director of Research for Grace Century comments: “This kind of legislation, hopefully will be controlled, but moves the goal post closer for the industry. Personally, I am waiting for Insurance companies to agree to pay for storage of young healthy cells: to me that’s a no brainer for improving health down the road, while saving tons of cash.”
