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 …

Metronomic cancer therapy

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 Glossary

What Are Exosomes? Exosomes are loosely described as extracellular vesicles of fluid first used in inter-cell communication ( paracrine signaling) and these fluid-filled structures are usually released by cells after fusion of multivesicular body (MVB) and the plasma membrane. This process helps release intraluminal vesicles (ILVs) into the extracellular membrane (milieu) and the release vesicles are what we refer to …

Gene Therapy and the Future of Precision Medicine

Regen Center Blog, Glossary

Most traditional treatments today are designed using a one-size-fits-all to cover the “average” patient. But advances in biotechnology and Artificial intelligence (AI) medical researchers are now equipped with vast amounts of personalized datasets at their disposal, and can analyze unique situations based on our genetic profiles, family medical histories and other relevant medical conditions to better understand what types of …

paracrine signaling

Auto Paracrine Signaling Mechanism & Stem Cell Communication

Regen Center Glossary

What is Paracrine Communication? Paracrine signaling also known as Paracrine communication is a natural method of communication between cells that causes desired changes in surrounding cells and chemically altering the behavior surrounding cells. Why is paracrine signaling important? The paracrine communication system, exosomes and cytokines are critical for the success of functional medicine, regenerative medicine, and stem cell therapies. The …
