Although Dr. Lewis Obi is currently writing a chapter in a major textbook on stem cells, it should be emphasized that all of his work and research is around adult derived stem cells (ASC) and in no way related to cloning. As a proponent of ethical medicine, Dr. Obi would never cross established boundaries and include the use of embryonic cells. Adivive stem cell concentrated fat is a product of our own adult cells and is an enhancement of traditional fat grafting procedures that have been used for more than a century. With this prefix, we would now report important news announced only this week:
Dr. Lewis Obi is in agreement with Dr. Yamanaka’s caution. Stem Cell treatment centers in the United States are making premature claims of their efficacy. However, there is an enormous potential with adult derived stem cells (ASC) especially from fat and this is an area of study for medicine. In less than two years, Dr. Obi has pioneered this area of medicine with both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures.
