The Future Of Medicine… Now
Regenerative medicine is the process of replacing or “regenerating” human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function by replacing damaged tissue or by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms to heal tissues or organs.
One distinct clinical therapy in Regenerative Medicine is Cellular Therapy which utilizes the injection of Stem Cells and other potent growth factors into the body.
Placental Derived Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine
Stem Cells and other potent growth factors are optimally derived from the placenta, which provides an abundant supply, which is then used in various medical applications. Placental Derived stem cells are being explored in several applications including Type 1 diabetes, cardiovascular repair, and central nervous system applications for brain injury and repair.
Regenerative medicine has made its way into clinical practice with the use of materials that are able to assist in the healing process by releasing growth factors and cytokines back into the damaged tissue (e.g., (chronic) wound healing). As additional applications are researched, the fields of regenerative medicine and cellular therapies will continue to merge and expand, potentially treating many disease conditions and improving health for a variety of diseases and health conditions.
