Stem cell therapy for knees may be able to provide relief to a lot of people. Knee pain is an extremely common condition that affects millions of Americans and people around the world. Considering the daily load that legs bear, a problem with your knees can limit movement. Knee pain can substantially reduce ones’ quality of life and anti-inflammatory medication can only do so much. Suffice it to say, there exists significant interest in finding solutions to address the pain and to restore healthy knee function. That’s where stem cell therapy for knees comes in. [Read more…]
More and more athletes are turning to stem cell treatments, because the pressure to get back on the field is high and access to these experimental therapies is continuing to increase. Athletes commonly suffer serious injuries that could potentially end their careers and cause them serious long-term health complications. Most of them turn to surgery to resolve those injuries.
However, some of them are pursuing stem cell treatments, because these procedures are less invasive than surgery and have the potential to speed and augment repair. While the effectiveness of these surgeries is largely unknown, what is clear is that a growing number of athletes are turning to this approach.

Who discovered stem cells is a question worthy of exploration. While Robert Hooke first discovered the concept of cells themselves, the discovery of stem cells is usually credited to Drs. James Till & Ernset McCulloch.
For several hundred years, researchers have known that the human body is comprised of trillions of tiny structures. Known as cells, these structures can only be seen at a microscopic level. These cells come in hundreds of variations – 200, to be exact – and serve multitudinous functions within the human body.
These functions include pumping blood, digesting food, and ridding our bodies of toxins and waste products, among others.

The global cord blood industry experienced strong growth from the early 1990’s through the mid 2000’s, during which time more than 450 cord blood banking companies emerged worldwide. Approximately half of those companies owned their own labs, while the others were marketing entities or sub-contractors of storage space.
Starting about ten years ago, the market suddenly changed course. It entered a period of aggressive consolidation.
Over the past decade, the cord blood industry has witnessed substantial consolidation, particularly within the United States, Europe, and Latin America.
Each year, the BioInformant team enjoys participating in Phacilitate Leaders World, now part of Advanced Therapies Week, and the World Stem Cell Summit, which is co-hosted with the event.
This year’s conference is being held this year from Jan 21-24, 2020, in Miami, Florida, and will be the single largest networking event of the year, bringing together the entire ecosystem of the advanced therapies industry from across the globe.
If you can only attend one conference this year, I’d recommend this one because it attracts several thousand attendees, 350+ organizations, and 200+ speakers.
It’s also two events in one, because Phacilitate Leaders World (part of Advanced Therapies Week) is co-hosted with the World Stem Cell Summit, making it an opportunity to connect with new and existing clients and partners worldwide.
If your team is thinking to attend or sponsor, we received a code (“BIOINFORMANT“) for our community to get 10% off both delegate passes and event sponsorship.
Early bird registration discounts end on November 22, 2019, so if you act soon, you’ll get the best possible deal.
Will I see you there?
If you’re not able to make it, what other events are on your schedule for 2020? It’d be great to meet in person.
