Russell Health’s Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy products use amniotic fluid and do not utilize cord blood or any type of blood product. Cord blood (umbilical cord blood) is blood that remains in the placenta and in the attached umbilical cord after childbirth. Cord blood is collected because it contains stem cells, which can be used to treat hematopoietic and genetic disorders. On the other hand, amniotic fluid is not blood and comes from the amniotic tissue layer after a live C-section birth. Amniotic fluid is used to help recruit the own body’s stem cells and healing components to regenerate new, healthy tissue. Amniotic fluid is regulated by the FDA and 361 compliant and follows very strict sterilization protocols. Russell Health and its tissue bank partners are in compliance with the FTC and FDA.  

The FDA and CDC released information on the Liveyon cord blood product that was recalled for bacterial contamination. Given that this product was being injected IV, these patients became very, very sick. Meaning, unethical providers and this company were putting patients at risk by administering this product to patients.

FDA sends warning to company for marketing dangerous unapproved stem cell products that put patients at risk and puts other stem cell firms, providers on notice
