    They need a control group because they are also testing safety. There are potential negative effects of the therapy, and any negative outcomes need to be compared against a control group to see if the therapy is causing it or if it is just natural.

    They need a Placebo group to compare distinctions between the 2 example > the side reactions
    Like I said already and it is so disturbing " Waiting is the hardest part " but I rather be safe than sorry and end up like the Jeff Goldblum Character in the fly movie ...
    Being a fly has to really suck !!!

    Control Groups

    A typical clinical trial has an experimental treatment group, which consists of patients receiving an experimental treatment, while another group serves as the control group. The results in the experimental treatment group are compared to the control group to determine the effect of the treatment. In most cases the control group receives a standard treatment for the disease. If there is no standard treatment, the group may receive no intervention. Sometimes evidence gathered from historical studies can serve as the control group.
    The results of these trials are analyzed using statistics to determine whether any difference between the groups might be due to coincidence or placebo effect. Whenever possible, clinical trials are "double blind". This means that neither the physician nor patient knows who gets the new treatment, and who does not. However, this is not always feasible.

    At about 14 minutes, Dr Young gives a real life example of why a control group is needed for any surgical procedure.

    Right after that at around 15 minutes he states that just performing the operation without cells resulted in 54% of the patients walking. Why is this surgery not done now?!

    I think this has to be done very soon after the accident so it's too late for all of us
