The future of regenerative medicine may be plants.
The future for regenerative medicine in AMD surely does look bright. At the same time, the juxtaposition of these two reports serves as an important cautionary tale. As promising as regenerative medicine is, we must take care not to let ourselves get out ahead of the evidence. “First do no harm” has to be our watchword.
Nagy admits the promise of personalized cell regeneration is probably too costly for mainstream use, and he believes genomic editing—in which DNA is inserted or deleted—is key to safe iPS cell implants. For his part, Yamanaka is cautiously optimistic about iPS cells as a therapeutic tool.
Regenerative medicine, which consists of tissue engineering, cell therapies, and healing therapies, is still in its infancy, but is a fast-growing segment in the medical field.
The medical need for organ transplants far outstrips our supply, and the gap is only getting worse. One possible solution may be to grow custom-made organs for people out of their own cells.
It may sound crazy, but it's already happening. Humans are currently walking around with artificial bladders, urethras, windpipes, and vaginas — all grown from their own cells in a laboratory.
The fact is, the scientific and regulatory hurdles to getting Cytori’s cells into clinical use will be easier to clear for breasts than for other tissue: Breasts simply aren’t as necessary as other organs, so the bar for proving to regulators that the technology works will be lower. It’s also a booming market. In 2009, women forked over $964 million to plastic surgeons for breast augmentation, which edges out nose jobs as the most commonly performed plastic surgery in the US.
The field encompasses a number of different technologies, including cell, gene, and tissue-based therapies.
New breakthroughs in the field of regenerative medicine are allowing us to live longer, healthier lives.
Just like the simple act of backing-up your computer has become routine, so too could the act of backing-up your stem cells now, before you regret not doing so in the future.
Grim stories about the abuse of regenerative medicine and stem cell therapies have been in the headlines.
The Alliance for Regenerative Medicine (ARM) is the preeminent global advocate for regenerative and advanced therapies. ARM fosters research, development, investment and commercialization of transformational treatments and cures for patients worldwide.
The American Academy of Regenerative Medicine (AARM) and the American Board of Regenerative Medicine (ABRM) are the leaders in setting standards and promoting excellence in the field of Regenerative Medicine, related education, research, publication and certification.
The purpose of the American Osteopathic Association of Prolotherapy Regenerative Medicine is to provide physician training in the basic science, research, clinical diagnosis and treatment for use in the performance of prolotherapy (also known as ligament and tendon constructive therapy) for treatment of pain syndromes, degenerative joint diseases, hyper mobility syndromes, and musculoskeletal pain.
InGeneron is elevating the field of regenerative medicine by translating robust science into proven patient benefit.
As the name implies, the Journal of Immunology and Regenerative Medicine provides a forum for the publication of studies that explore the potential and essential roles of the immune system in tissue and organ development, maintenance, response to environmental stressors, response to injury, and in the processes of tissue repair and regeneration.
Journal of Regenerative Medicine (JRGM) is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal and aims to publish the most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. in all areas of stem cells and regenerative medicine...
Journal of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine is a multidisciplinary journal that publishes research and reviews on the development of therapeutic approaches which combine stem/progenitor cells with biomaterials and scaffolds, and growth factors and other bioactive agents.
The McEwen Centre's vision is to be a world-renowned centre for stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. To achieve this ambitious goal, the team of McEwen Investigators is working together to accelerate the development of more effective treatments for conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease and spinal cord injury.
npj Regenerative Medicine is a new open access, online-only journal dedicated to publishing the highest quality research into ways to help the human body repair, replace, restore and regenerate damaged tissues and organs.
The Regenerative Engineering and Medicine (REM) research center is a joint collaboration between Emory University and Georgia Tech. REM is specifically focused on endogenous repair or how the body can harness its own potential to heal or regenerate.
Regenerative medicine replaces or regenerates human cells, tissue or organs, to restore or establish normal function*. Since 2006, Regenerative Medicine has been at the forefront of publishing the very best papers and reviews covering the entire regenerative medicine sector.
Our mission is to accelerate regenerative medicine
to improve health and deliver cures

Regenerative medicine is one of the fastest growing biomedical industries in the world because patients are being cured of diseases that were once incurable. Regenerative medicine represents a new paradigm in human health because the vast majority of treatments for chronic and life-threatening diseases focus on treating the symptoms, not curing the disease.
