Wharton’s Jelly Mesenchymal Stem Cells (WJ-MSCs)

Regen Center Blog, Glossary

Wharton’s Jelly, a gelatinous substance found within the umbilical cord, is a rich mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) source. These MSCs possess unique properties that make them a valuable tool in regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, and immunomodulation. Lets discuss some advantages and applications of Wharton’s Jelly stem cells along with methods used for extraction and utilization in clinical applications[1]. Clinical application …


The Angiogenesis Process and Its Therapeutic Benefits

Regen Center Blog, Glossary

Vascular enlargement, or angiogenesis, occurs when new blood vessels form inside the body’s preexisting vascular system. It begins in utero until old age, in health and sickness. A blood capillary, generated by the process of angiogenesis, is never more than a few hundred micrometres away from any metabolically active tissue in the body. All tissues rely on capillaries to facilitate …


Advantages & Future Applications of mRNA Technology

Regen Center Blog, Glossary

We recently experienced the powers of a ground-breaking vaccine against COVID-19 thanks to mRNA technology,  but it has even more potential to democratize access to bleeding-edge medical advancements.  Messenger RNA or “mRNA” is a single-stranded RNA involved in protein synthesis. Although the blueprint for proteins in living cells was discovered six decades ago, its pharmaceutical potential was long overlooked. mRNA …

Metronomic therapy

Regen Center cancer, Glossary

Metronomic therapy is an alternative salvage treatment for patients who have been heavily pre-treated relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, kidney cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, and cancer of the prostate. Metronomic therapy has been shown to affect both tumor cells & tumor microenvironment to achieve therapeutic effects. Metronomic cancer therapy is also considered a lower cost dose used compared to …

What is A Motor Neuron? Motor Nerves & Innervation

Regen Center Blog, Glossary

Motoneuron, also known as motor neurons, are a type of cell body located in the brainstem, motor cortex, or spinal cord. Fibers called axons project outwards to the spinal cord can indirectly or directly control muscles, organs, and glands in the body. Types of Motor Neurons Upper Motor Neurons – Axon fibers from the upper motor neurons help communicate with …


Exosome Therapy – Nanoparticles for Biogenesis & Delivery

Regen Center Blog, Glossary

Exomes are the portions of an organism’s genome containing protein-coding genes. They comprise a small part of the total DNA, usually around 1-2%, but are responsible for most known genetic functions. Exomes contain sequences called exons, which are the coding regions within genes. These exons are transcribed into RNA and then translated into proteins, which perform various functions within the …
