The cellular therapy ward of the Iranian Red Crescent Society’s Nour Afshar Hospital in Tehran is ready and will become operational soon. “Cell therapy (also called cytotherapy) is when cellular material is injected into a patient; this generally means intact, living cells,” said hospital director Mohammad Na’eemipour, IRNA reported. The ward construction and equipment phase is completed and the ethical committee and clinical team have been selected. Currently, it is awaiting Health Ministry accreditation. Two distinct categories of cell therapy are recognized, cell therapy in mainstream medicine, and cell therapy in alternative medicine.
