In recent years, stem cell infusion has become a breakthrough technology. There have been multiple medical leaders citing regenerative medicine as the way of the future. Stem cells obviate our need to patch up the body or create stopgap measures for systems that don’t work. They instead promise to replace organs and tissues that no longer function, essentially rebuilding the body from the inside out. Naturally, science has not progressed to a point of spreading this technology across the globe. However, the growing availability and efficacy of stem cell infusion indicate this isn’t far off, either. [Read more…]
Unicyte, a regenerative medicine unit of Fresenius Medical Care, and its collaboration partner Professor Camussi have published results in Stem Cell Reviews and Reports that a potential therapeutic strategy for diabetes is the transplantation of induced-insulin secreting cells.
The Global Disease Burden of Diabetes Mellitus
Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common diseases globally. Diabetes mellitus (DM), commonly referred to as diabetes, is a group of metabolic disorders in which there are high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period. With an aging population and surging rates of obesity, the incidence of this debilitating disease on the rise. [Read more…]
Stem cell therapy in India is emerging as a new modality within the healthcare system. The progress is supported by numerous innovators within the country. One company forging the way is ReeLabs, a leading stem cell bank in India that is supporting the collection and storage of stem cells, as well as the development of novel stem cell therapeutics.
Diabetes Mellitus in India
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), diabetes mellitus (DM), commonly referred to as diabetes, is a group of metabolic disorders in which there are high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period. Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common diseases globally.
In India, the prevalence of diabetes is rising, predominantly related to factors such as genetic factors, stress, diet, obesity, lack of meaningful exercise and lifestyle related issues. [Read more…]
It’s the newest breakthrough in regenerative medicine: Using cytokine, growth factors and intracellular miRNA signaling with bio-scaffold from the extra cellular matrix components utilizing minimally-manipulated placental tissue materials. It is NOT about cell counts. It is about increasing the amplitude of signaling from the initial and continued inflammatory (injury) to the individual cell signaling pathway utilized to repair or regenerate the cellular structure that has been injured, diseased, or traumatized.

While there are many exciting cell and gene therapy events each year, there are invariably a few that stand out from the crowd. One of these events is the World Advanced Therapies & Regenerative Medicine Congress, an exhibition and conference that has grown to become one of the best and most established cell and gene events in the world today.
Held in London, UK, from May 15-17, the 2019 edition will be in its 14th year. Year after year, the event has continued to grow and attract a large audience of biotech, pharma, start-ups, investors, research and technology companies from around the world.
This year, the event will host over 1000 attendees, 250 speakers, 80 exhibition booths, and over 500 different global companies. [Read more…]
