Regenerative Medicine

The future ‘stems’ from this

Regenerative Medicine refers to the process of replacing, engineering or regenerating cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. This amazing field holds the possibility of restoring damaged tissues and organs by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms to functionally heal previously irreparable tissues or organs. Historically, conditions would require alternative solutions, but regenerative medicine opens up a whole new world to rebuild from the building blocks of life those cells, tissues and organs affected by trauma or disease.

Humans have cells, tissues and organs. Animals have cells, tissues, and organs.

Everyday there are advancements and research breakthroughs in both veterinary and human medicine, yet at present neither profession collaborates to share their information that would progress treatments and procedures using regenerative medicine for the benefit of humans and animals simultaneously.

Name: Izzy
Species: Dog
Age: Eight years old
Condition: Severe leg fracture caused by a road accident
Name: Jessica
Species: Human
Age: Six years old
Condition: Severe leg fracture caused by a road accident

Is it right that Izzy has access to more options of advanced treatments and procedures than Jessica, helping her live a pain-free, quality life as this new era of medicine becomes a reality?

Is it right that we currently we test human medical advancements on otherwise healthy laboratory animals, often for human only benefit when we have clinical veterinary knowledge from patients like Izzy who has a fully functioning leg thanks to regenerative medicine?

The future stems from this. The potential of regenerative medicine heralds a new era of revolutionary treatments could and should benefit us all.
