There are a number of regenerative cell treatment types being used in certain hospitals to date and each have their own purpose in modern medical practice. These cell treatments include treatment involving regenerative medicine, amniotic regenerative medicine, PRP injections, and tissue engineering. Depending on the individual’s situation, one or a combination of these cell treatments may be used during treatment.
Some confusion exists towards the difference between general regenerative medicine use and amniotic regenerative medicine. Amniotic regenerative medicine are similar to regenerative medicine but where they are harvested from donors. Amniotic regenerative medicine come from human amniotic membrane, which includes key properties that are shared with general regenerative medicine. These similarities make them closely related, such as possessing the ability to distinguish into differing types of cells and low immune reactivity. Due to this parallel, amniotic membranes are used in a wide variety of treatments for nearly as many conditions that general regenerative medicine might be used for. As an example of the effectiveness of amniotic regenerative medicine, animal testing has shown that such membranes can enhance healing in damaged tendons and connectivity issues of a similar nature.
