DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "FDA's Regulation of Regenerative Medicine including Stem Cell Treatments and Tissue Engineering" training has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
This seminar will provide an historical context for the use of stem cells in medicine, where the field has been and where it is going. It will also provide few examples of FDA approved use of stem cells in medicine and what is needed for the field to progress. Learn the fundamentals of stem cells and FDA's regulatory approach for its use in medicine.
Stem cells harness the power to differentiate into numerous cells upon stimulation. This has led to their wide exploration across all of medicine, including high-risk diseases. Of course, significant scientific breakthroughs in the use of stem cells to prevent, diagnose, and treat numerous diseases has caused numerous start-up companies to form.
Despite such promise, the FDA has yet to approve stem cell therapies for a wide range of diseases, except cord blood-derived hematopoietic progenitor cells for certain indications. Attend this seminar to learn and apply the definitive ways to needed for the field to progress.
