Truthfully, stem cell research is still a grey area for me. While it supposedly does help a lot of people cope with various illnesses, one is left to wonder if it can do what researchers actually think it can do. I know that I wouldn't want to risk my Fosamax lawsuit over experimental research that might not work. http://www.rotlaw.com/fosamax/

How safe and effective is stem cell therapy? Can it possibly cure fosamax and femur fracture?Were there already experimental tests conducted? http://fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com

This is great news. Thank you for sharing this. If stem cell research proves to be viable in the near future I hope this provides a capable alternative for osteoporosis treatment. http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com
