What it's all about

Symposium participants received a comprehensive review of cellular medicine, review current techniques, and learn various applications and protocols for delivering stem cell treatments to patients that address a range of health and aesthetic indications.

The field of regenerative medicine is expanding at an exponential rate. The number of clinical trials employing adult stem cells is now in the thousands.

Use of cell therapy in the treatment for alopecia.
In recent years, a number of modalities have become available for the noninvasive reduction of adipose tissue, including cryolipolysis, radiofrequency, low-level laser, and high-intensity focused ultrasound. Each technology employs a different mechanism of action to cause apoptosis or necrosis of the targeted adipocytes.

Among these technologies, cryolipolysis has not only been commercially available for the longest time, but has also been best researched including in vitro and animal models and randomized controlled clinical trials in humans.

The principle behind cryolipolysis exploits the premise that adipocytes are more susceptible to cooling than other skin cells. The precise application of cold temperatures triggers apoptosis of the adipocytes, which invokes an inflammatory response and leads to slow digestion by surrounding macrophages.

Dr. Al Sears MD

13:00 - 14:00
Determining the Feasibility of Using Stem Cells to Treat Erectile Dysfunction in Humans
Stem cell therapy is thought to improve wound healing and promote vasculogenesis. Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is largely from microvascular disease such as diabetes and hypertension.

This presentation seeks to evaluate the feasibility and effects of intracavernosal injection of Placental Matrix derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells (PM-MSCs) for the treatment of ED.
