What is regenerative medicine
Though great progress has been made in medicine, current evidence-based treatments are increasingly unable to keep pace with patients’ needs, especially given our aging population. There are few effective ways to treat the root causes of many diseases, injuries and congenital conditions. In many cases, clinicians can only manage patients’ symptoms using medications or devices.
Regenerative medicine is a game-changing area of medicine with the potential to fully heal damaged tissues and organs, offering solutions and hope for people who have conditions that today are beyond repair.
Regenerative medicine holds the promise of definitive, affordable health care solutions that heal the body from within, revolutionizing patient care across multiple therapeutic areas, including cardiac, cardiovascular and ocular diseases, oncology, wound healing, autoimmine disorders and spinal cord injuries.
From a strictly scientific point of view, Regenerative Medicine is a broad field of research, involving tissue engineering an biomaterials, medical devices and artificial organs, the clinical translation of experimental therapies (translational research) and cellular therapies.
