FDA: 3 Hospitals OK for Stem Cell Therapy

THREE hospitals in metro manila have secured the approval of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to engage in human stem cell and cell-based therapies after meeting the safety, efficacy and quality standards set by Department of Health (DOH)

In a joint advisory signed by Health Secretary Janette Garin, the FDA said the first health facilities to receive such accreditation were The Medical City, Asian Stem Cell Institute and Makati Medical Center.

The hospitals were given approval to perform three applications of Stem cell therapy: hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, corneal resurfacing with limbal stem cells and skin regeneration with epidermal stem cells.

A Filipino doctor has been making waves in the medical beauty arena. Dr. Cristina Puyat, one of the country’s top dermatologists, was the keynote speaker at the Nabota grand launch last month at Edsa Shangri-La Hotel.

Dr. Puyat delivered an informative lecture on Nabota and Perfectha to a rapt audience of fellow doctors and guests. I found out that Nabota is a novel Botulinum Toxin Type A, manufactured by Daewoong Pharmaceuticals.
