How Does Regenerative Medicine Work?
Amore Anti-Aging specializes in Regenerative Medicine. This is an area of healthcare that has the potential to have a disruptive effect on the way certain human ailments are managed. Allogenic human cell and tissue products are able to supplement the body’s natural healing process. The human cell and tissue materials we use come from the umbilical cords of healthy, full-term deliveries. Our products do not contain any fetal or embryonic tissue. All products are rigorously tested to FDA guidelines in our CLIA certified lab. Our minimally manipulated tissue products are prepared utilizing proprietary extraction methods that reduce the loss of important cytokines, growth factors, proteins and biomolecules, and are intended for homologous use.
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.
Regenerative Medicine is a new field of medicine with one goal in mind: to heal and restore normal function of damaged tissues and organs. Just like the human body itself, regenerative medicine utilizes stem cells to replace damaged cells and tissues. Stem Cells are, therefore, considered to be one of the most powerful tools in treating diseases. They go beyond conventional methods to repair and regenerate disease-related damage, by returning tissues and organs to a healthier state. Stem cells exist in many different types as they have been identified in various tissues and organs. Each type of stem cell is classified by their origin in the body, and their potential (potency) to differentiate (transform) into other cell types. This potential varies among stem cell types. Some stem cells can differentiate themselves into any cell type of body (pluripotent). Others, on the other hand, can transform into many cell types (multipotent), while some are only able to differentiate themselves into few (oligopotent) or one cell type (unipotent). Having this in mind, it is important to note that not all stem cell types are suitable for treating patients. For example, the use of Embryonic Stem Cells (ESCs) for treating patients is restricted due to ethical issues, and their potential to grow into tumors. One of the safest and most effective forms of stem cell treatments, make use of autologous stem cells, i.e. stem cells derived from the patient themselves. By using autologous stem cells for the treatment of patients, there is very minimal to no risk of tumor formation, the transmission of infectious diseases or adverse immune reactions.
EFFECTIVE AND SAFE
Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMC) and Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are the most abundant form of autologous adult stem cells that are well suited for clinical use. They are relatively easily harvested from the bone marrow (BMCs) or from the subcutaneous (“under the skin”) fat (MSCs).
