Healthcare Facility Allegedly Peddled Stem-Cell and Ozone Therapies to Latino Community as COVID-19 Cure

  • Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge sued healthcare provider Arkansas Regenerative Medical Center LTD, its medical director, and its chiropractor (collectively “ARMC”) over allegations that ARMC fraudulently marketed therapies for COVID-19 in violation of the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
  • The complaint alleges that ARMC fraudulently promoted expensive stem-cell and ozone therapies for treating COVID-19 to the Latino community, which was heavily impacted by the pandemic, and that its marketing falsely claimed that these therapies were “very effective” against COVID-19 and would allow employees to return to work more quickly.
  • The complaint seeks injunctive relief, restitution, civil penalties, and attorneys’ fees and costs.
