In the past 10 years, biocellular regenerative medicine has recognized the potential value and availability of a heterogeneous, undifferentiated, nucleated cell population with the adipose tissue complex (ATC). With the recognition of higher mesenchymal stem cell concentrations, ease and safety of access, and the very heterogeneous undifferentiated cell populations in the native 3D adipose matrix, many researchers and clinicians are moving from bone marrow sources to the adipose complex.
By Donna D. Alderman, DO, Robert W. Alexander, MD, DMD, FICS, Gerald R. Harris, DO, & Patrick C. Astourian, MS, PA-C ABSTRACT Prolotherapy is a proven technique for resolving musculoskeletal pain, but can have limitations if tissue damage is too severe. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Prolotherapy offers a physiologic tool in some of those cases, but this too may more »
By Harry Adelson, ND ABSTRACT A recent development in regenerative medicine is the use of bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells for the treatment of degenerative musculoskeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis. While the use of autologous stem cells is of immediate interest to all practitioners of regenerative medicine, the complexity and expense of the traditional technique more »
