The ISSCR writes to urge the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency to increase enforcement activities to prevent the marketing and commercialization of stem cell-related products that are unproven and do not conform to United Kingdom (UK) and European Union (EU) Advanced Therapy Medicinal Product (ATMP) regulations.
