Regeneration; An Advanced Field Of Science: Now You Don’t Need A Donar For Your Therapy

  September 5th 2019    Blog

Branch of medicine that develops methods to regrow, repair or replace damaged or diseased cells, organs and tissues is termed as regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine is a result of transitional research in tissue engineering and in molecular biology. Tissue engineering and molecular biology deals with the process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal functioning of body.

How regenerative medicine work?

Regenerative medicine includes use of therapeutic stem cells, tissue engineering and the production of artificial organs. Regenerative medicine restores structure and function of damaged tissues and organs. Regenerative medicine is also helpful for organs that become permanently damaged due to any trauma or injury.
Regenerative medicine use materials that are able to assist in the healing process by releasing growth factors and cytokines into the damaged tissue. The goal of this medicine is to find a way to cure previously untreatable injuries and diseases.

Types of regenerative medicine treatments

Regenerative medicines can be used as cell therapies (the injection of stem cells or progenitor cells); immunomodulation therapy (regeneration by biologically active molecules administered alone or as secretions by infused cells); and tissue engineering (transplantation of laboratory grown organs and tissues). Stem cells are special human cells that have the ability to develop into many different cell types, from muscle cells to brain cells. So stem cells are best option for regenerative medicine.
Treatments include both in vivo and in vitro procedures. In vivo meaning studies and trials performed inside the living body in order to stimulate previously irreparable organs to heal themselves. In vitro treatments are applied to the body through implantation of a therapy studied inside the laboratory.

Which disease can be treated with degenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicines are useful in sports injuries. Sports injuries usually cause inflammation. But in some cases inflammation before the injury healed. Prolotherapy is a technique in which a physician injects an irritant into the injured area, which temporarily increases inflammation. The hope is that the additional inflammation will facilitate further healing.
Regenerative medicines are also useful in Diabetes type 1. Stem cell therapy is a type of regenerative medicine which offered fascinating solutions to restore the insufficient production of insulin resulting from the loss or dysfunction of pancreatic β-cells.
Some people around the world have difficulty to control their urinary bladder; the inability to urinate at will, or even to regulate the buildup of urine and it’s due to a birth defect called spina bifida. Patients have received urinary bladders grown from their own cells as a treatment, this is the first ever laboratory-grown organ transplant placed into a human, all made possible by Regenerative Medicine.

Advantages of regenerative medicine

It uses natural components of your body tissues, so the risk of adverse reactions or infection is not possible.
It also relief pain in addition to regenerate tissues.
In combination with surgery, it enhances healing and recovery.
Regenerative medicine procedures take no more than 2 hours and you can return to your daily activities in a week.

Ideal for sports professionals

The effects of treatment are usually long lasting and may be repeated if necessary.
