What is “stem cell tourism”?

Some clinics are offering “stem cell-based” treatments that allegedly bring anti-aging effects, enhance physical properties, or even cure incurable diseases. If a treatment is not available in Switzerland, it is either because the treatment has no proven efficacy or because its safety has not been established. Consequently, traveling to another country to undergo an experimental treatment (stem cell tourism) can be expensive, ineffective and even dangerous. When considering a stem cell therapy, always gather information from different sources.
