Human tissues possess cells to regenerate themselves when damaged. These cells, including stem cells and other types of progenitors, are able, upon a certain type of stimuli, to regenerate the tissue by:
Generating new cells
Secrete a matrix that will form the new tissue
These abilities are not specific to a tissue meaning that stem cells from bone marrow or adipose tissue are able to give rise to new tissue.
STEMCIS specializes in harvesting and purifying adipose tissue's cells from a patient to cure his/her own pathology, especially for the musculoskeletal and urogenital systems pathologies. Therefore, STEMCIS focuses its research on the regenerative potential of cells contained in adipose tissue.
Adipose tissue cells are widely investigated in clinical trials to assess their potential in many applications.
