Learn More About Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative medicine is the latest medical and scientific discipline focussing on harnessing the stem cells power as well as the body’s abilities to regenerative and restore functions on damaged organs, tissues, and cells. These stem cells can be found in different adult body tissues such as synovial fluid, menstrual blood, adipose tissue, dental pulp tissue, umbilical cord blood, and bone marrow. After the stem cells are isolated from the body tissues, they mature into other kinds of cells that are able to treat different conditions in a human body. Regenerative medicine is the future of contemporary medical treatments. Regenerative medicine is a field that scientists are running trials and doing research on how to improve and enhance this medicine area.
The umbilical cord blood and bone marrow have used stem cells widely in the medical field for over 20 years to cure different diseases. Metabolic disorders, blood disorders like anemia and cancers are some conditions among the 80 different conditions that can be treated using the umbilical cord blood. About 20 years ago, the umbilical cord blood was thought to only treat a few diseases however this has changed, and its clinical application has grown by leaps and bounds.
Stem cells used in regenerative medicine and found in the umbilical cord blood of infants are able to regenerate and renew themselves. Stem cells can, using the mitosis process are able to separate themselves and become specialized cells such as muscle cells or brain cells or remain stem cells. Stem cells are able to repair any damages caused by all kinds of diseases, trauma or disorders. Regenerative medicine, the transplantation of stem cells, and stem cell grafting are methods which stem cells are able to treat illnesses and disorders.
Immunology, molecular biology, genetics, and biochemistry are some scientific fields that are included in the wide range of regenerative medicine. Scientists have been doing studies and research in this field and have come up with some methods to use in regenerative medicine which are medical devices, cellular therapies, artificial organs, and tissue engineering.
Regenerative cells are removed from a healthy human body, isolated and later on inserted back in the body in the process known as regenerative medicine. Mesenchymal stem cells, cytokines and proteins are growth factors that help to treat injuries on the shoulders, knees and wrists through the body’s self-healing nature. Such growth factors assist in the treatment of tissues that have been affected by either injury, disease or age. Regenerative medicine is least invasive, and most patients have benefited from this kind of treatment given by experts of regenerative treatment. In regenerative medicine the stem cells obtained can be stored in stem banks to wait until a condition requiring stem-cell treatment is identified.
