Bone Marrow Derrived Stem Cells

Bone marrow-derived stem cells (BMSCs) are a type of stem cell found in the bone marrow, the spongy tissue inside bones. These cells have the unique ability to develop into various types of cells, including those that form bone, cartilage, and fat. BMSCs play a crucial role in the body’s ability to repair and regenerate damaged tissues. This procedure can be used to help patients avoid surgical procedures for a wide range of medical conditions.

Placental “Stem Cells” and The State of Utah vs the FDA

There’s a battle brewing based on a new stem cell law that looks likely to pass in Utah. You can bet that this will result in the FDA getting involved and ignoring this new state law. It’s also reasonable to assume that this law will get quoted as the main ammunition to support that Utah…read more

How Would You Know If You Got a High or Low Quality BMC Procedure?

A bone marrow concentrate procedure or BMC contains the patient’s stem cells. However, how the doctor performs this procedure either means high or low stem cell numbers. At Regenexx we deal with these variables to ensure you’re getting a high-quality procedure. If you’re outside of the Regenexx network, how would you know?

New Study of Many Cell Therapies Versus Steroid Yields Interesting Results

We’re entering a time where we will continue to see large, high-quality studies published in orthobiologics. This has been happening in the PRP world for the last half-decade or more, but it is also about to happen in the world of bone marrow, adipose stromal vascular fraction, and umbilical cord stem cells. Another entry in…read more

Making Sure Orthobiologic Procedure Standards Don’t Slip

As consumers, it’s not hard to look at everyday items and determine their quality relative to their price. It’s also easy to see if you’re getting the same product at a Starbucks in the Seattle airport or the one in the Miami airport. However, with orthobiologics, these quality metrics are hard for a patient to…read more

Helping a Competitive Teen Gymnast with Spondylolysis Avoid Surgery

For many teen athletes, their sport is their life. These days, a good number of teens come up against serious physical obstacles. This morning we’ll review a patient journey who reached back out to Dr. Jason Markle of our Colorado HQ site to update him on how she’s doing 5 years down the road. We’ll…read more

The Alien Abduction Model of DDD: Why Cellular Drug Trial Results Have Been Underwhelming

Let’s say that you’re sleeping one night and get awoken by an alien in your bedroom who takes you back to the mothership for experiments on your low back. That’s pretty much what we’ve been doing with animal degenerative disc disease research for decades. It’s this artificial DDD model that has caused many cell therapy…read more

Is Academia Leading or Trailing Private Practice in the Field of Orthobiologics?

In many areas of medicine, you go to an academic Medical Center if you have a rare condition. However, in orthobiologics, it’s been the opposite in that there is more accumulated experience and published data in private practices. This morning I’ll review why that is and how academia stacks up. Let’s dig in. Academia and…read more

The Bench Scientist False Dilemma

Credit: Shutterstock I’ve blogged a few times about the widening rift between a handful of media-savvy bench scientists and physicians who use regenerative medicine techniques to help patients avoid invasive orthopedic surgery. This past few weeks we’ve seen several unscientific things in the news and in bench science blogs about PRP and Bone Marrow Concentrate.…read more
