Cell therapy (also known as cellular therapy or stem cell therapy) includes a variety of procedures in which processed tissue from animal embryos, foetuses or organs, is injected or swallowed.
Some people think that cell therapy can provide benefits to people on the autism spectrum by helping to regulate the cells in their bodies.
However other people think that cell therapy has no obvious benefit for individuals on the autism spectrum and that it can be painful, distressing and potentially hazardous depending on how it is administered.
