That sentence: "Forever Labs has also proposed its own clinical trial to take your stem cells and give them to your older cells." is journalistic confusion. It should read 'older self'. So is the statement about FDA approved as I mentioned below. The first version of this article said that Steve was the scientist... what can you do?

That aside, the commentor is correct that we plan on expanding them. That's intrinsic to the value of these cells, they can be expanded to massive numbers outside of your body. Otherwise, their use would be severely limited. The majority of clinical trials expand them before use. If you aren't using them as part of a trial, you cannot expand them in the US. If it's part of a trial, you can. We are going to run trials.

Thanks for the response. It's all very fascinating.
