The use of Adipose Derived Stem Cells in regenerative medicine and their revolutionary approach

Importance of Stem Cells in developing new therapies and approaches for functional restoration of defective tissue is constantly increasing. Stem cells have the potential to treat a vast range of diseases and conditions since they are capable of extensive self-renewal and expansion and, moreover, can differentiate into any type of somatic tissue. This is the reason why their use in regenerative medicine is considered a revolutionary approach. The same approach is applied by experts of Bioscience Institute, in the Cell Factories of Dubai and San Marino, to the sphere of the aesthetic and beauty treatments, from the filling of fine wrinkles, until the soft tissue augmentation techniques (for breast or buttock for example) and the hair loss treatment, using autologous expanded adipose derived stem cells (ADSC). Furthermore, ADSC produced in Bioscience Institute Cell factory can be used in a broad range of fields, such as orthopedics, for tendon and cartilage repair, or wound healing. The autologous (means that every patient uses only its own cells) biological material used is made of ADSC, harvested from a small lipoaspirate, then cultured and expanded until they reach the required number to be released for the required treatment. Thus, all the procedures do not require the use or the injection of any external synthetic prosthesis or substance in the body, producing very natural and long lasting results through a biological approach. The stability of the result is connected to the use of stem cells that, instead of being easily absorbed (as it happens to the fat), can differentiate into adipocytes, stabilizing the outcome. Current developments of the processes of expansion of adipose derived stem cells have made treatment biologically safe and affordable for everyone: now it is possible to create and maintain for several years (thank to cryopreservation techniques) a reserve of mesenchymal stem cells, isolated and expanded. Cells can be collected ad hoc for future use or they may be the result of a liposuction. The high number of on-going approved clinical trials, concerning this type of cells, demonstrates the biological safety of these mesenchymal cells. Another important advantage you can get by using these cells is linked to the possibility to standardize a specific therapy, since you can program the number of cells needed for a certain treatment (according to the type of condition you need to treat and to the characteristics of the patient) that cannot be obtained using just adipose tissue or the SVF.
