Globally, there are now more than 700 open clinical trials listing stem cells (from sources other than blood) as the primary therapeutic. Most represent a new form of therapy for a range of disease targets.

Beyond one-ply: Understanding the layers of consent and risk in clinical trials

Traversing the so-called Valley of Death in stem cell research - where potential therapies die before they can be translated into clinical practice - is often considered a financial proposition. But look more closely at what lurks in that valley and you will find other significant barriers for researchers to overcome, chief among them the need for effective communication between and among clinicians, regulators, payers, patients and the public.
