The Potential of Fat for Regenerative Medicine

Adipose tissue is gaining acceptance as a potent source of stem cells.
  • Enal Razvi, Ph.D.

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.
