Regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine refers a group of biomedial approches to healing that involve stem cells. One is the injection of stem cells or progenitor cells (stem cell treatments); another the induction of regeneration by introduced substances; and a third is transplantion of in vitro grown organs and tissues.
