With so much discussion about stem cells and their potential benefits, it is often difficult to determine if stem cells can really help you, your friend or family member. This Handbook has been developed by the National Stem Cell Foundation of Australia, in conjunction with Stem Cells Australia

to help you in your quest for information. This booklet discusses what makes stem cells so special; how they are currently used in research and in the clinic, as well as raises concerns about unproven stem cell treatments that are currently being offered in Australia and overseas. Use

 this Handbook as an aid to critically analyse information that you gather, and make sure you seek independent advice from your regular Australian specialists before you pursue stem cell treatment.
