What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a branch of translational research in tissue engineering and molecular biology which deals with the “process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function”.
What can regenerative medicine be used for?
The promising field of Regenerative Medicine is working to restore structure and function of damaged tissues and organs. The goal of this medicine is to find a way to cure previously untreatable injuries and diseases.
Is regenerative medicine effective?
Regenerative medicine may be defined as the process of replacing or “regenerating” human cells, tissues, or organs to restore or establish normal function. This field holds the promise of regenerating damaged tissues and organs in the body by replacing damaged tissue or by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms to heal tissues or organs. Regenerative medicine also may enable scientists to grow tissues and organs in the laboratory and safely implant them when the body is unable to heal itself. Current estimates indicate that approximately one in three Americans could potentially benefit from regenerative medicine.
