Regenerative medicine has the potential to cure failing, dysfunctional or damaged tissues. Stem cells may regenerate into new cells and may repair and renew the functionality of the damaged area.

Cardio

Cardio

Heart disease includes such conditions as coronary artery disease (hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis), arrhythmia, valve disease, and heart failure. These conditions can be caused by a number of factors, including aging, diet, genetics, or a reduction of blood supply to the heart.

Diabetes

Diabetes

Nearly 347 million people suffer from diabetes worldwide. It is the third leading cause of death in the US, where it is estimated that one in three people born since 2000 will suffer from diabetes at some stage in their lives, with Hispanics being especially affected. Diabetes in the US is the leading cause of kidney failure, non-traumatic lower-limb amputations, and non-congenital blindness. In addition, diabetes can contribute to heart disease and stroke. There is no cure for diabetes, but stem cell therapy provides a promising alternative to commonly used treatments.

Neuro

Neuro

Neurological disorders are diseases of the brain and nervous system, such as Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and spinal cord and brain injuries. These disorders may be devastating and debilitating to both patients and their family members, but new developments in stem cell research offer promising improvements to quality of life for those affected.

Pulmonary

Pulmonary

Pulmonary Disease is a group of respiratory conditions that include asthma, allergies, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary fibrosis, emphysema, and cystic fibrosis. It is estimated that hundreds of millions of people worldwide are affected, with over 200 million people suffering from COPD alone. Stem cells treatment may offer relief for many pulmonary disease patients, by reducing inflammation and improving immune function.

Sports Injuries

Sports Injuries

Orthopedic and sports injuries like tendonitis, tennis elbow and rotator cuff injuries, affect hundreds of millions of people yearly. Often these injuries can become chronic and difficult to heal, largely because of poor blood supply to the injured region. Cell therapy can help the repair process by creating new blood vessels to bring needed nutrients to damaged tissues.
