Former Texas governor Rick Perry, now the Trump Department of energy (DoE) nominee, has a long association with all the Texas stem cell clinic, Celltex. He was an individual of Celltex, which some years back infused Perry with non-FDA approved stem cells.
The business received a warning letter from the FDA and ever since then has sold its stem cells in Mexico far from FDA oversight. Perry has been a long-time supporter of Celltex. More recently he has served on the Celltex board and apparently earned $175, 000 from Celltex for his talking to. Big stem cell bucks.
Now reportedly Perry has resigned through the board of Celltex and other businesses to avoid possible clashes of interest as he hopes to take the helm of the DoE, a department he indicated he wanted to eliminate a few years back apparently shortly after he had surgery and got a Celltex stem cellular treatment, possibly having been impacted by pain medication. This was their famous “ oops moment”.
There’ s i9000 a reasonable chance that Celltex will be able to resume clinical procedures within the U. S. in the next four years and/or possibly get an IND. I’ ve heard something concerning the latter through the grapevine in the last few years and an IND could be a positive step.
Many are wondering the actual Trump Administration’ s policies on stem cells is going to be ranging from adult to embryonic stem cells. Could Perry, if he joins the administration, influence its method of stem cells? FDA policies?
