What is Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative Medicine is the medical process of "replacing or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs in order to restore or establish normal function".  An emerging field in medical technology, regenerative medicine empowers scientists to grow tissues and organs in a laboratory setting, and then safely implant them into a patient when that patient's body can no longer heal itself.  

Regenerative medicine refers to a group of biomedical approaches to clinical therapies that may involve the use of stem cells.  Examples include the injection of stem cells, the induction of regeneration by biologically active molecules administered alone or as a secretion by infused cells (immunomodulations therapy) and transplantation of in vitro grown organs and tissues (tissue engineering).
