Health Fraud
A psychiatrist based in Malibu, California, who operates Medra Inc, a clinic in the Dominican Republic and Mexico, and claims a high success rate in treating various diseases (e.g., multiple sclerosis) with foetal stem cells.

Mainstream scientists and doctors involved in stem cell research are hopeful that stem cells will be of therapeutic value in the future, but clinical trials for such treatments are not yet in development; as such, the general conclusion is that Medra, and other for-profit stem cell enterprises, offer at best no more than false hope, or at worst are committing fraud.
