CABINET NOTES: The Cabinet held discussions with two doctors by Zoom concerning Stem Cell Therapy which will be offered in Antigua to visitors and those with the resources to purchase the service.
Stem Cell Therapy is the new method of curing illnesses without the use of surgery and pharmaceuticals, relying instead on rejuvenation of body parts by the injection of youthful cells that work with the body’s system to fix itself.
It was agreed that the law exists for such therapy to be applied in Antigua.
However, the issue of the payment of taxes and the shielding of the state from liability were two important issues that were agreed-to when the Zoom meeting ended.
The issue of the “chain of custody” of the stem cells was also very important and was addressed, with assurances of security of the stem cells being given by the doctors who will operate the center.
An Oversight Committee enshrined in the law will give its attention to the proposal.
