Exosome Therapy – Nanoparticles for Biogenesis & Drug Delivery

Regen Center Glossary Leave a Comment

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 1 Comment

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 Mechanism & Stem Cell Communication

Regen Center Glossary Leave a Comment

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 and cytokines are critical for the success of functional medicine, regenerative medicine, and stem cell therapies. The signaling …

Apoptosis and Programmed Cell Death “PCD”

Regen Center Glossary Leave a Comment

There are generally 2 ways that human cells can die: They are destroyed through an injury or viral agent The cells induce themselves to commit suicide Cell Death through Injury or Harmful agents Cells in our bodies that have been damaged due to injuries, such as exposure to lethal/toxic chemicals or mechanical damage tend to go through a series of changes …

Endothelial Cells & The Endothelium Layer

Regen Center Glossary Leave a Comment

Human Endothelial cells “EC” are estimated to account for nearly 1 kg of mass in the human body. This mass is about the same as our livers. Endothelial cells are thought to be produced by the splanchnopleuric mesoderm. These vital cells line the insides of all our blood vessels, including microscopic capillaries to larger arteries such as the aorta. The …
