Our current relationships with the leaders in scientific community have cultivated a unique working partnership. We translate the data points from research and convert them into tangible effective therapies. Our team of subject matter experts and cellular biology research teams help us create a database of knowledge in how human cells work. By diving deep into our human DNA and shedding light on the process of cell proliferation we are working our way to unlocking the human potential.
Regenerative medicine may be defined as the process of replacing or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. Regenerative Medicine refers to a group of biomedical approaches to clinical therapies that may involve the use of stem cells.
Stem Cells also known as MSCs (mesenchymal stem cells) are your foreman on the jobsite when it comes to healing your painful joints and soft tissue injuries. Stem Cells have the ability to decrease inflammation and restore a healthier environment within a painful joint. They also recruit your healing cells to a site of injury or pain and may form other cell types, including cartilage and bone.
Adult stem cells can be found in many places, including bone marrow, fat, and placental and umbilical cord tissue. Vitality Biologics focuses on the most accepted and most researched form which is to collect bone marrow aspirate which can be used for orthopedic applications Bone marrow is removed from the hip bone using a simple painless procedure, and the bone marrow aspirate can either be concentrated or used in a spinless technique depending on your condition.
On the same day your bone marrow is collected, the product is then injected into the area of the body being treated under image guidance (ultrasound or X-ray). The total procedure time usually takes 45 to 60 minutes. The most common orthopedic condition treated with stem cells is osteoarthritis and painful joints.
Consider alpha-2-Macroglobulin (A2M) one of the best therapies when it comes to regenerative medicine therapies. Especially for patients suffering from degenerative arthritis.
A2M is a safe and naturally occurring molecule that exists in your blood. It binds to the proteases; IL-1, IL-6, IL-18 and TNF that cause cartilage breakdown and inflammation, essentially halting their destruction and allowing an injury to heal.
A2M injections are considered a type of regenerative medicine, or orthobiologics. The minimally invasive procedure is conducted much like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, where a sample of your own blood is taken then spun in a centrifuge to concentrate the levels of A2M. It is this concentrated collection of A2M obtained from your own blood that is re-injected directly to the target joint to help it heal.
A2M works by binding to and trapping the destructive proteins, which are then eliminated from the body naturally. Also, because of the nature of A2M itself, the procedure does not stimulate an inflammatory response in the body, so these injections involve even less discomfort than other regenerative therapies.
