Regenerative Medicine is vast and offers treatments that help humans heal faster and live longer.
Actress-singer,award-winning Author and stem cell advocate Lourdes Duque Baron quotes:
Stem cells are biological cells that differentiate into other types of cells, it can divide and create more of the same type of cells. Stem cell transplantation replaces lost tissue with new cellular material. The goal is to regenerate damaged or diseased tissues.
In the past, only stem cells were highlighted by regenerative medicine, but another healing element called Exosomes were discovered.
Exosomes work like stem cells, they deliver and transfer beneficial outputs like bioactive lipid, nucleic acid, and proteins that the body can use to cure injured cells.
Exosomes are extracellular vesicles that our cell naturally releases, but cannot replicate. When they are released it contains genetic information and proteins to neighboring cells. Exosomes can regulate cell to cell communication.
Benefits of Stem-Cell Derived Exosomes
In recent studies, researchers have discovered the ability of MSC-derived exosomes to provide tissue healing, repair, and regeneration. It is also effective for use when dealing with cardiovascular regeneration and strengthening the functions of the human heart. Making it a promising cure for people suffering from heart diseases. It is also a potent solution for livery injuries such as liver fibrosis, acute liver injury, and hepatocellular carcinoma.

Exosomes of younger cells can rejuvenate older cells when exposed. It can break the degeneration that is happening inside the cells. If doctors introduce fresh exosomes to damaged tissue it can instigate the healing process.
Researchers are also looking into the implications of exosomes to drug delivery. Physicians and scientists are hoping to use exosomes for targeted drug delivery. It is expected to yield far more superior results for treating cancer. Currently, hospitals still rely on radiation or chemotherapy, however, it is toxic to the healthy parts of the body. Exosomes, on the other hand, can be used to target the tumor directly reducing weakening and side effects in the body.
Exosomes could also one day resolve the problem of delivering drugs to the brain across the blood-brain barrier.While there is still much to know about Exosomes, scientists are positive about the implications for the future.
The medical world is so positive about Exosomes that the predicted global market forecast value for Stem Cell Exosome Therapy is at US$ 34.49 Mn in 2028.
Exosomes would be sold in the form of diagnostic devices, therapeutic agents, cosmeceuticals, and as research tools. The demand will surge due to the rise of autoimmune diseases and other chronic degenerative diseases.
In the near future, more clinics and hospitals will adapt the use of stem cell therapy solutions. Countries that are keen on investing include the U.S, Germany, France, Poland, China, Italy, Spain, the UK, Europe, and Saudi Arabia.
New Breed of Homo Sapiens
Lourdes Duque Baron during a photoshoot taken July 26, 2019 — she was 72. Already in her 70’s, Lou Baron enjoys the effect of billions of stem cells injected through her veins. She is literally a New Breed of Human- faster, stronger, sharper, and operating on higher levels of energy and inspiration.
