Getting sick or injured is so common that it’s laughable. Yet, it isn’t really something that we should simply be laughing about.
It can be hard on someone when their body isn’t working right, sometimes painful. There are a number of diseases and possible injuries that can leave people feeling utterly helpless, and even the aging process can become an enemy to some people.
There’s hope though, as regenerative medicine has been growing more and more recently, opening up new options and pathways for recovery. Recently, Eileen Scahill, through OSU.edu, has gone into details about one of the latest breakthroughs in the science.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Ohio State’s College of Engineering have developed a new technology, Tissue Nanotransfection (TNT), that can generate any cell type of interest for treatment within the patient’s own body. This technology may be used to repair injured tissue or restore function of aging tissue, including organs, blood vessels and nerve cells.
The number of breakthroughs and amazing discoveries have been leading to a number of potential treatments for various types of diseases and injuries. Another possible method was discussed by Andy Palma on Futurism.com, which highlights a potential source of healing that can even affect bones.
APPLICATION OF COLD PLASMA IN BONE DEVELOPMENT
The lead author of the paper, Theresa Freeman, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery in the Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University, briefly discussed their research in a statement: “We’ve previously studied how different applications of cold plasma can either directly kill cells, such as in skin cancer, or help them grow, as in developing bones. In this study, we asked how cold plasma would affect the area surrounding cells, known as the extracellular matrix.
There are a number of fantastic scientists that are studying and applying regenerative medicine in a variety of ways. Some target specific areas, some focus on the big picture, but all of them follow the same hopes and beliefs entailed by Alan Russell in the following video.
To some it may seem hopeless, finding a cure or way to heal themselves, however that simply isn’t the case. There are options, and whether you’re ill, hurt, or simply are struggling with aging, regenerative medicine may be the unique possibility that could bring relief where nothing else was able to.
