The Arrival of Regenerative Medicine

 Regenerative Medicine is a new paradigm of medicine that relies on stem cells capacity to regenerate, regrow, and fully heal damaged tissues and organs in our bodies.

Regenerative Therapies are the main source of hope for millions of people afflicted with conditions labeled as “incurable” by today’s medicine.

Examples include spinal cord injury, ALS, MS, Huntington’s disease, Alzheimer’s, and many more.

The core principles of Regenerative Medicine are rejuvenation, regeneration and replacement, are shifting the paradigm in healthcare from symptomatic treatment in the 20th century to curative treatment in the 21st century.
