Regenerative medicine is an area of healthcare that has the potential to have a disruptive affect on the way certain human ailments are managed. Allogeneic (where donors can include siblings or unrelated donors determined to be a match) human cell and tissue products are able to supplement the body's natural healing process.
Regenerative medicine plays an important role in the care continuum. Using human cell and tissue products to support the optimal internal healing environment gives patients and professionals new treatment options that weren't available just a few years ago.
As our bodies age we experience:
Longer healing time
Changing chemical environment
Cell exhaustion (cell aging)
How Does Regenerative Medicine Work?
Over time, healthy tissue can become dysfunctional due to age and injury. A human cell and tissue product (HCT/P) is administered to a recipient to repair, reconstruct, replace or supplement the same basic functions of the recipient's cells or tissues.
The human body utilizes a variety of tissue and cell interactions to support the healing process. Human cell and tissue allografts supplement similar tissue in your body
