If a person requires treatment either from a sickness or injury then they can receive it from cells removed from a healthy human body tissues which are the simple definition of the concept of stem cell therapy. Cells, biomaterials, and molecules are used in regenerative medicine to replace and restore body structures that are not properly function due to sickness or injury.
Unlike the normal method of treatment, regenerative medicine is different because it seeks to first know the root cause of the sickness and then fix the faulty genes, replace lost cells and organs while standard treatment uses standard drugs to treat only symptoms.
There’s a promise by regenerative medicine to introduce medical treatment, stem cell insertion and biocompatible material to the light in this evolution. Several achievements have been noticed with the scientific journals and media taking all the hail.
Regenerative medicine is described as the attempt to repair or replace human cells, or restore organs or tissues to their original function. This normal function is what makes medical treatment different from others that use common drugs that treat signs and symptoms without addressing the leading cause.
Regenerative medicine aims at restoring body tissues to enable them to form insulin in diabetic cases. What this means is that the body helps to restore regular sugar metabolisms and no insulin is injected in the body. For instance, in type 1 diabetes this may not work, but in other section, this regenerative medicine is recognized as the main medical practice.
Several scientists all over the world are developing other regenerative medical solutions for different injuries and common diseases. Studies show that these scientists came up with a chip technology able to change a cell type so that it can treat whole organs. There is spray painting which is also a new method that scientists have developed where damaged hearts are treated through a minimally invasive surgery, and a growth factor applied to reverse osteoporosis.
Treatment through regenerative medicines is expensive because they must have a facility of special production and also their staff must be highly skilled. With the current tough economic times, these high costs are inhibitive to make regenerative treatment a reality.
Treatment using regenerative medicines is limited by the high costs which means that even the benefits of this kind of treatment cannot be enjoyed. Despite the increasing market growth of regenerative medicine, scientists argue that modalities to make this kind of treatment affordable should be implemented so that it can benefit most patients.
The methods of research by scientists on regenerative medicine and stem cells are known as huge achievements. But not breakthrough can be successful if not treatment is implemented.
