What Is Regenerative Medicine

Our body has the innate capacity to restore the functionality and structure of tissues and organs damaged by an injury or a disease. Regenerative medicine h therapy has shown that treating or even curing diseases using these same natural repair mechanisms is possible.

Regenerative medicine has two major tasks:

  • to differentiate between the natural mechanism of regeneration and that of scarring and understand how regeneration works, and
  • to stimulate regeneration and repair of damaged tissue that would be otherwise impossible.

As a result, scientists in the field can manipulate how cells and tissue grows and stimulate the state of regeneration instead of scarring. As an alternative to surgery, regenerative medicine is, unlike its traditional counterpart, fraught with risks. As far as its practical applications go, regenerative medicine uses regenerative medicine injections, as well as substances such as platelet-rich plasma and other human cells, tissues and cellular and tissue-based products to promote and expedite healing following an injury or illness.

There are various molecular, cellular and developmental processes that control how healthy tissue grows and develops. Studying these processes to fully utilize the body’s regenerative potential is the main focus of regenerative medicine. Scientists working in the field are constantly looking for ways to revolutionize science and medicine so we could maximize the potential benefits of regenerative medicine.

Using research in the fields of chemistry, biology, mathematics, computer science and engineering, advanced regenerative medicine has revolutionized cell therapy. We are just now beginning to fully comprehend the immense potential of natural regeneration and the mechanisms and patterns behind it.

What is Mesenchymal Stem Cell Treatment


Mesenchymal stem cell research and therapy is currently the main focus of regenerative medicine and ongoing research and work in the field. Researchers are looking to cell differentiation in the hope that it will help them identify the genes and pathways involved in the process so that they can ultimately manipulate the process and use it to create healthy, new tissues. Another major application of stem cells concerns the testing and development of new drugs.

The bottom line is that, however exciting and promising regenerative medicine is at the time,  the future of the field is looking bright and it seems that the best is yet to come. The rapidly evolving field of regenerative medicine seems to have a lot more to offer and modern science will inevitably continue to make huge progress in the field.

Hopefully, we will someday see cell therapy render organ donation obsolete, without the risks of organ rejection or tissue insufficiency. We just have to stick around long enough to see the full potential of regenerative medicine become unleashed.
