What is Regenerative Medicine?

by Rismary Cabrera
Regenerative medicine represents what may turn out to be the greatest leap forward in medicine since the discover of penicillin. Regenerative medicine is based on the harnessing potential regenerative processes using adult stem cells, as well as other therapies such as tissue engineering. In short, it is an emerging field that may allow for new forms of treatment that can heal or replace tissues and organs damaged by disease, birth defects and injury. Researchers are working tirelessly to create treatments that can renew and recreate the human body in ways that previous generations could only imagine.
