MANILA, Philippines — A 39-year-old woman died from alleged complications brought by stem cell therapy.

A relative of the victim informed the police on Thursday about her death in a hospital in Quezon City on Jan. 9, just hours after she underwent stem cell treatment in a clinic in Barangay Phil-Am. The victim had a chronic kidney disease, according to police.

Probers said the victim suffered a seizure and became unconscious at around 1 p.m. after she finished her stem cell treatment.

The woman was rushed to a hospital in Barangay West Triangle for medical treatment. She died at around 2:34 p.m.

The victim’s death certificate stated her cause of death as anaphylactic shock as the immediate cause, with glutathione and stem cell intravenous infusion as the antecedent cause.

It is unclear if the victim’s family will pursue charges against the clinic.
