Adipose and Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cell + Platelet Rich Plasma Training Course

Autologous stem cell therapy in the field of regenerative medicine involves harvesting, isolating the stem and regenerative cells from adipose tissue, bone marrow and /or peripheral blood and administering the cells back to the patient. Efficient, validated compliant office- based method for isolating adipose, blood and bone marrow derived stem cells.

The course curriculum consists of comprehensive theoretical lecture and home study education, two days didactic and clinical experience.

One day of post-educational on-site clinical assistance is also available upon request

PROGRAM AGENDA

Objectives for the Stem Cell Training Course

-Describe the basics of cellular biology and list the properties that define stem cells. Identify the various types of cellular divisions and types of stem cells, along with their characteristics.

-Define Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and identify the growth factors and proteins that cause the natural healing cascade. List currently treated conditions, such as orthopedic conditions, treated with Platelet Rich Plasma.

-Describe the current regulatory environment for regenerative therapeutics. Review current state laws and regulations that influence the stem cell industry. Review the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDA) of 1938 and current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and how they apply to stem cell therapy.

-Describe Induced Pluripotent (iPS) Stem Cells and recall the criterion that defines a true iPS, as well as some of the clinical applications of iPS.

-Describe how Adipose Derived Stem Cells (ADSCs) function, recognize the conditions treated by ADSCs, and recall how to isolate ADSCs.

-Describe how Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cells (BMDSCs) function, recognize the conditions treated by BMDSCs, and recall how to isolate BMDSCs.

-Identify the difference between Adipose Derived Stem Cells and Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cells.

-Identify the differences between human Embryotic Stem Cells (hESCs) and the legal/ethical issues affecting the cell technology.

-Describe the Stem Cell Banking process and name the steps from removing the tissue sample from the patient to delivering the cells back into the patient.

-List conditions currently treated with cellular therapies and incorporate guidelines to improve comprehension of current research and evidence for stem cell therapy.
