The concept of stem cell therapy is quite simple, to remove cells from a human body and insert them in a patient’s body to treat an injury or treatment. 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.
Regenerative medicine is set apart from every other standard drug because the latter treats signs and symptoms; and the former seeks to treat the bottom line of an illness through fixing faulty genes, organs or lost cells replacements.
Regenerative medicine has an allure promising to bring medical treatment, stem cells insertion, and biocompatible materials to the whole world to see. 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. The primary role is what sets medical treatment aside from the others which use standard drugs which cure signs or symptoms and ignoring the main cause.
In diabetic cases, regenerative medicine seeks to restore body tissues to help them to form insulin. This means therefore that no insulin is injected to the body and there’s a restoration of standard sugar metabolisms. For instance, in type 1 diabetes this may not work, but in other section, this regenerative medicine is recognized as the main medical practice.
Scientists globally are coming up with regenerative medical ideas to treat common diseases and injuries. Research shows that the scientists have designed a chip technology that can change cell types to treat most body organs. The method of spray painting is one where the scientists have designed a method to treat damaged hearts through minimally invasive surgery and also growth factor application to reverse osteoporosis.
Regenerative medicines treatment is not cheap because the staff working with them must be highly skilled and they must also have a facility for special production. In the current harsh economic times, this expensive nature of this treatment method makes this kind of treatment unrealistic.
Treatment using regenerative medicines is limited by the high costs which means that even the benefits of this kind of treatment cannot be enjoyed. Even with the market growth of regenerative medicine, scientists argue that modalities should be implemented to make this treatment cost-effective and affordable to benefit several patients.
The scientific research on stem cells and regenerative medicine is an achievement to scientists. But not breakthrough can be successful if not treatment is implemented.
