Remember how fast you used to heal when you were a kid? As we get older we take longer and longer to heal from even the most minor of injuries. Sometimes we are left with chronic pain that never seems to heal. Wouldn't it be great if we could get our bodies to heal like it did when we were kids?
Stem Cells are the building blocks that our bodies use to regenerate tissue and repair injury. When we are young, we have an abundant supply of stem cells to perform repairs quickly and efficiently. As we age, we start to lose stem cells and it takes longer to perform even simple repairs. The goal of regenerative medicine is to find ways to help our bodies utilize our own stem cells more efficiently and if needed, provide additional stem cells to regenerate and heal.
We used to think that stem cells were only found in embryonic tissue and in the bone marrow. It turns out that stem cells are actually everywhere, even in adults. Adult stem cells, also known as mesenchymal cells are found resting along the vast capillary beds all over our bodies. They are even found within fat cells (adipose tissue). This is significant because fat cells are generally considered to be expendable, and thus a great source for harvesting stem cells.
In response to an injury, signals are sent out to cause the resting stem cells to migrate to the area and start repairing and regenerating damaged tissue.
The signal is initially sent out by the platelets that aggregate at the site of injury. Once on location, the stem cells also send out their own signals to attract even more stem cells.
Once enough stem cells have arrived at the work site, the cells start to multiply and transform (differentiate) into the kind of cells needed to repair the damage. Stem cells can form new cartilage, new bone, new skin, new collagen and even new blood vessels.
As we age, the number of available stem cells start to decrease, making it more difficult to heal. Regenerative therapies help to amplify the signal that attracts stem cells to an injury. Treatments are now available to recruit and even replace stem cells so that you can heal naturally, like you did when you were younger!
