The Potential of Fat for Regenerative Medicine

Adipose tissue is gaining acceptance as a potent source of stem cells.

The Potential of Fat for Regenerative Medicine

A collision is taking place between clinicians who are focusing on adipose tissue and clinician-scientists who are seeking to understand the active moieties within the adipose tissue.

  • In this GEN report, we explore the expanding space of adipose-derived stem cells.

    Highlights of this report:

    • The study of adipose tissue is moving into the mainstream of stem cell and regenerative medicine research.
    • The field is translating from the deployment of fat for cosmetic or reconstructive applications towards regenerative medicine.
    • A number of ongoing clinical trials around the world exploring the regenerative potential of adipose tissue/adipose-derived stem cells.
