The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) has developed the document Stem Cell Treatments – Frequently Asked Questions to provide consumers with information about stem cell treatments, and the risks involved in undergoing unproven treatments.

These resources provide information about the regulation of stem cell treatments in Australia that is no longer current.  While correct at the time of publication (2013), this information does not reflect changes to the Australian Biologicals Regulatory Framework that came into force from 1 July 2018. Advice will be sought from NHMRC’s Council regarding the future of these documents early in the 2018-21 triennium.
