Despite the development of state-of-the-art surgical procedures, medical devices and generations of drugs, heart disease remains the number one cause of death worldwide. What option is there for cardiac patients who do not respond to current drug regimens and technology? Stem cell therapy promises to be the next evolution in medicine. read more »
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs), according to Dr. Arnold Caplan, are analogous to a drugstore that functions at the site of an injury by providing different types of “medications.” Mescenchymal cells also respond and communicate with the local environmental needs to provide the correct “medications” needed for healing. read more »
Both the European Union (EU) and United States call for thorough manufacturing and regulatory practices to eensure the quality and safety of medical devices. While there are no appreciable differences in safety records between the two, there is a significant difference in time to bring the device to market. As a result, reports suggest that European patients have access to many medical devices earlier than American patients. read more »
Treatments for cardiovascular diseases are based on opening the blocked arteries (stents) or adding a piece of a vessel into the heart to bypass the blockage. In the end what the patient needs is sufficient blood and nutrient supply to the entire heart muscle. A groundbreaking way to achieve this result is to have stem cells from your own body grow new blood vessels in the heart. read more »
Cell Therapy is the transplantation of human cells to replace or repair damaged tissue and/or cells. With new technologies, innovative products, and limitless imagination, different cell types e.g., hematopoietic (blood-forming) stem cells, from adipose (fat) or bone marrow tissue etc are being used in therapies or researched for their potential to treat a variety of diseases and medical conditions. read more »
