Regenerative Medicine: Stem Cell Therapy & PRP

Your body is made to heal itself, but sometimes the damage or injury is too severe, and it needs assistance. Regenerative medicine is intended to help promote and facilitate your body’s natural healing and repair processes.

Regenerative therapies such as platelet rich plasma therapy and bone marrow aspirate (stem cells) are therapies based upon using YOUR cells to help promote healing and repair. It is thought that as we age and we suffer from a chronic joint condition our body loses the ability to mobilize reparative cells effectively to heal our injuries. Regenerative therapy is believed to help this problem by taking a large volume of regenerative cells from YOU and then relocating them via an injection precisely into the injured joint essentially initiating the healing process. This process is virtually painless and is believed to supplement your body’s natural response to injury.

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem Cell Therapy is a type of regenerative procedure. At Atlas Medical Center, this therapy is performed by Dr. Jason Kouri, MD who has over 20 years of clinical experience and has dedicated his practice to treating orthopedic and musculoskeletal conditions with regenerative therapies.

During this procedure, stem cells, along with other important reparative cells, are extracted, using a unique device, from a small area (the size of a pinhole) from your pelvis. These cells are then relocated on the same visit to a targeted area that is damaged or injured. Injecting stem cells into a damaged / injured joint is intended to trigger a healing cascade, essentially “kickstarting” the regenerative process.

General Research: Regenerative Medicine

Abstract
Human bone marrow (BM) is a kind of source of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) as well as growth factors and cytokines that may aid anti-inflammation and regeneration for various tissues, including cartilage and bone. However, since MSCs in BM usually occupy only a small fraction (0.001%) of nucleated cells, bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) for cartilage pathologies, such as cartilage degeneration, defect, and osteoarthritis, have gained considerable recognition in the last few years due to its potential benefits including disease modifying and regenerative capacity. Although further research with well-designed, randomized, controlled clinical trials is needed to elucidate the exact mechanism of BMAC, this may have the most noteworthy effect in patients with osteoarthritis. The purpose of this article is to review the general characteristics of BMAC, including its constituent, action mechanisms, and related issues. Moreover, this article aims to summarize the clinical outcomes of BMAC reported to date.

Abstract

Background: The use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in clinical applications for the treatment of musculoskeletal disease is steadily increasing in office-based practice. The so-called “first generation” of MSCs is defined as autologous stem cells that have undergone minimal manipulation and are used for a homologous purpose. Systematic reviews of the clinical trials completed to date of such MSCs enable practitioners to better understand what is currently known about the outcomes and side effects of such treatments.

Study design: A systematic review of human clinical studies of office-based MSC therapy for the treatment of painful degenerative musculoskeletal conditions.

Methods: A search of the Ovid MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Scopus databases was conducted from 2006 through September 2016. Seven hundred sixty-one records were identified from database searching, and two records from reference review of included papers. Studies with human subjects that evaluated treatment of musculoskeletal disease with minimally manipulated MSCs were included.

Results: Eight studies were included in this review based on selection criteria. A total of 941 patients were included, 841 of whom received cellular products, and no significant adverse events were reported. Symptomatology generally improved, though no differences were seen over controls where present.

Conclusion: Support in the literature is strongest for the use of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) injections for the treatment of knee pain, but applications of the use of BMAC and peripheral blood-derived MSCs for the treatment of hip pain, tendon pain, and disc pain have all been reported. Further research is required, with large randomized controlled trials.

Abstract

Background:
The treatment of sports-related musculoskeletal injuries with stem cells has become more publicized because of recent reports of high-profile athletes undergoing stem cell procedures. There has been increased interest in defining the parameters of safety and efficacy and the indications for potential use of stem cells in clinical practice.

Purpose:
To review the role of regenerative medicine in the treatment of sports-related injuries.

Study Design:
Review.

Method:
Relevant studies were identified through a PubMed search combining the terms stem cells and cartilage, ligament, tendon, muscle, and bone from January 2000 to August 2013. Studies and works cited in these studies were also reviewed.

Results:
Treatment of sports-related injuries with stem cells shows potential for clinical efficacy from the data available from basic science and animal studies.

Conclusion:
Cell-based therapies and regenerative medicine offer safe and potentially efficacious treatment for sports-related musculoskeletal injuries. Basic science and preclinical studies that support the possibility of enhanced recovery from sports injuries using cell-based therapies are accumulating; however, more clinical evidence is necessary to define the indications and parameters for their use. Accordingly, exposing patients to cell-based therapies could confer an unacceptable risk profile with minimal or no benefit. Continued clinical testing with animal models and clinical trials is necessary to determine the relative risks and benefits as well as the indications and methodology of treatment.
