Regenerative Medicine applications nowdays

Posted by @carlozdr, Oct 6, 2017

Hi,

There is people are visiting doctors that offer Regenerative Medicine Consults as a prevention for Degenerative diseases , as some cardiovascular diseases and renal diseases, as part as antiageing medicine and Regenerative Medicine Program in suposly healthy people , so the healthy patients feel better, and they say their health indicators renal function etc… are improving.

Supposly this physicians are using some hormones regulation, Human Growth Hormones, and injection of stem cells to the patients.

So I was wondering how much of this is a real professional application of Regenerative Medicine nowadays, if this effects are partially true, or really are a lie.

Any one could share their opinion about it..

Regards,

Carlos.

Hi Carlos,
I’m so glad that you started this discussion. It can be really difficult to tell which stem cell therapies and regenerative medicine practices are effective and which institutions are offering evidence-based proven therapies. In fact, recently the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a stern warning against unproven stem cell therapies. The FDA issued these two press statements: https://www.fda.gov/newsevents/newsroom/pressannouncements/ucm573427.htm and https://www.fda.gov/newsevents/newsroom/pressannouncements/ucm573431.htm.

To help people learn more about the proven therapies and the promise of developing therapies, Mayo Clinic offers a free telephone consult service. When you call the consult service, they will tell you about the availability of approved stem cell therapy at Mayo Clinic and elsewhere, and for what conditions. They can also tell you about research studies that are actively recruiting participants. Furthermore, you can add your name to a database to be notified when additional studies and information become available. You can learn more about the Consult Service here http://www.mayo.edu/research/centers-programs/center-regenerative-medicine/patient-care/clinical-services/regenerative-medicine-consult-service.
Or call 1-844-276-2003 to speak with one of our experts. I’m also tagging @charlillie to bring her into the conversation.

Carlos, are you considering regenerative medicine for a particular condition?
