Research Studies


As further applications are studied due to advancements in biomedical science, the rapidly growing area of research in regenerative medicine may potentially provide benefits for a variety of diseases and health conditions. Pivotal studies on the effectiveness of stem cells in orthopedics, immunomodulation, autoimmune diseases, diabetes and many other indications have been published in key journals, and that number is continuing to grow every day.
