MANILA, Philippines The most advanced stem cell technologies and competent experts in the field are available in the country, according to two medical groups that advised actress-host Kris Aquino on Wednesday to consider having her son Joshua treated locally than going abroad.

They were reacting to Kris Aquinos declaration, in her morning talk show, that she planned to bring Joshua abroad for stem cell treatment.

Dr. Leo Olarte, spokesman of the Philippine Society for Stem Cell Medicine (PSSCM), said Filipinos no longer need to seek stem cell treatment outside the country. We have the ethical, moral, safe and effective stem cell or regenerative medicine technology available in the country today, said Olarte, also the president of the Philippine Medical Association.

The Philippines is abreast with the latest trends in stem cell technology, described as the future of medicine.Olarte said, We not only have internationally accepted stem cell technologies here but the competent medical doctors and experts as well to perform the procedure for our patients.

Their group, said Olarte, was willing to help Kris get the correct information to guide her in making the right decision for her beloved son Josh.

Aquino had revealed in her talk show that she was considering bringing Joshua, who has autism, to stem cell facilities in Europe, followed by Singapore, and then the Medical City in Pasig City.

Similarly situated friendsthose with special childrenhad reported big improvements in their kids after undergoing the procedure, Kris said.

The PSSCM has been working closely, said Olarte, with the Department of Health and the Professional Regulation Commissions Board of Medicine in the mission of having stem cell therapy highly regulated by the government to protect patients from unscrupulous practices.
