Unlike conventional medicine, regenerative medicine uses human cells and other substances to regrow tissues or restore their functions. Regenerative medicine combines approaches such as the use of cell-based, cell-free soluble molecules, stem cells from different sources, gene therapy, tissue engineering, reprogramming of cells, and, more recently, cell-free regenerative therapies. Regenerative Medicine provides details of the recent advancements in regenerative therapies for regenerative medicine applications.
