Already happened. The FDA made using stem cells impossible in the US,
calling them a drug and requiring drug protocol testing. That is, of
course, impossible since you can't use a standard clone of stem cells,
they have to be from the particular person they are being injected
My wife had this done with her knees a little over 5 years ago. It
was a US company, Regenexx, that developed the process. Since they
can't deliver the treatment (which involves growing out a substantial
clone of your stem cells) in the US, they set up in the Cayman
Islands. The local clinic they are in provided LASIC eye treatment
for a long time before the process was approved in the US.
Another problem is when an effective treatment can't make money. One
such is pterostilbene, a chemical relative of resveratrol (a number of
you are probably taking it). Apparently, a considerable number of
cancers can be treated with it. (Google). Most of the work is being
done in China.
