Regenerative medicine refers to treatment methods by which damaged or diseased cells, tissues, and organs are repaired, replaced or regrown back to normality. Often, when doctors talk about regenerative medicine processes, they involve stem cell therapy, which has considerably advanced in the last 40 years.
Stem cell treatment in Tampa entails the use of stem cells for treating or preventing a condition. Stem cells are special cells that have the potential to develop into different cells to help the body stay healthier. Stem cells may also help the body repair its damaged tissues.
Despite numerous research conducted into stem cell therapies since the 1980s, only the following treatments have been established as effective and safe regenerative medicine treatments. These show promising results, especially in spinal and orthopedic cases. Thus, these are widely used at hospitals and specialized clinics for stem cell treatment in Tampa.
Also known as hematopoietic stem cell therapy, this treatment is widely adapted and popular for certain types of cancers and auto-immune diseases. Blood stem cell therapy requires harvesting stem cells in the adult’s bone marrow to help cancer patients produce healthier blood cells that may have been killed by chemotherapy or radiation. It is also a good option for pain management in orthopedic inflammatory diseases, such as tendinopathies and joint inflammation.
The first phase of a clinical trial at the University of California San Diego aiming to repair spinal cord injuries via stem cell injections gave promising results, per the journal Cell Stem Cell.
A range of other stem cell therapies in regenerative medicine are being studied at different clinical trials. Among the more progressive studies are:
Since the 1980s – before the rise of hematopoietic stem cells – medical experts were using skin stem cell therapy for wound healing and to grow new skin for burn patients. According to the Journal of Skin Stem Cells, this particular therapy derives 50% of the regenerative medicine market revenue as there is a high demand for treating skin injuries.
Also known as corneal epithelial stem cells, this therapy helps regrow the cornea (the eye’s surface) to correct blindness and other vision problems. Europe has recently approved its first stem-cell-based product for treating eye diseases. Other countries may follow suit as research in this field has been progressing.
A clinical trial sanctioned by the FDA for a potential drug to cure Type 1 diabetes will be completed in 2021.
Different types of cell-based trials are taking place all over the world. Some of these trials aim to reverse the condition, while others aim to protect the brain cells from degenerating due to the disease.
Stem cell experts are also conducting studies on multiple sclerosis therapy using blood stem cells, cartilage or tendon injuries, Myocardial infarction, and macular degeneration.
Dr. Susanti Chowdhury is experienced at providing various regenerative medicine treatments, including stem cell therapy in Tampa. Stem cell treatments are particularly effective when used to replace, or repair tissue damaged by disease, or injury.
