Regenerative Medicine is the branch of medicine that develops methods to regrow, repair or replace damaged or diseased cells, organs or tissues. In Stem Cell Therapy, or Regenerative Medicine, researchers study how stem cells may be used to replace, repair, reprogram and renew your diseased cells. Stem cells are able to grow and develop into many different types of cells in your body. Stem cell therapy may use adult cells that have been genetically reprogrammed in the laboratory, your own adult stem cells that have been reprogrammed, or cells developed from an embryo (embryonic stem cells).
For example, researchers are studying the possibility of using stem cell therapy to repair or regenerate injured heart tissue to treat many types of cardiovascular diseases, from adult acquired disorders to congenital diseases.
Researchers believe that society is witnessing the early steps of a revolution in science and medicine, driven by an emerging understanding of stem cells. Transforming therapies for heart failure, spinal cord injury, neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, cancer, diabetes, retinal disease, hearing loss, and sports injuries. Scientists are presently conducting research with adult, embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells, and are pursuing this research with the goal of developing cures for diseases where there are presently few treatments.
Stem Cell Therapy and Regenerative Medicine are believed by many to be the most promising breakthrough in medicine in decades.
