Regenerative Medicine: A New Dawn for Male Reproductive Issues

  title={Regenerative Medicine: A New Dawn for Male Reproductive Issues},
  author={Pramod Vishwanath Prasad and Abhay Kumar},
In 1992, the term ‘regenerative medicine’ was first used in an article on hospital administration by Leland Kaiser. He stated that, “A new branch of medicine will develop that attempts to change the course of chronic disease and in many instances will regenerate tired and failing organ systems”.1,2 However, the widespread use of the term regenerative medicine is attributed to the founder of Human Genome Sciences, William A Haseltine.3 He recognized that these cells’ have the potential to…

The Emergence of Regenerative Medicine: A New Field and a New Society

It is hoped that the formation of a new field of medicine that will improve the lives of people everywhere by curing disease and address pressing social, political, and economic issues will stimulate progress by encouraging scientific collaborations and government funding.

Stem Cells as New Agents for the Treatment of Infertility: Current and Future Perspectives and Challenges

Current knowledge and present future perspectives and challenges regarding the use of stem cells in reproductive medicine are summarized.

A brief definition of regenerative medicine.

The origins and relationships that help to define the field are addressed and one of the complications is that regenerative medicine has grown out of a good deal of prior activity.

Stem cells in human reproduction.

Golos et al. (2010) summarize current knowledge on differentiating hESC into extraembryonic lineages, in particular trophectoderm and the various trophoblast lineages as models for the study of early human placental development.

Primordial Germ Cells: Current Knowledge and Perspectives

The aim of this review is to summarize current knowledge about PGC indicating the perspective of their use in both research and medical application for the treatment of infertility.

Stem cells and reproduction

The next generation of assisted reproductive technologies (ART), such as mitochondrial replacement technique (MRT) or genetic correction in eggs with micromanipulation, are introduced and the transmission of genetic information from somatic cells to subsequent generations without gametes is suggested.

Stem cell sources for regenerative medicine.

Current progress in therapeutic applications of various stem cells and the technical and social hurdles that must be overcome for their potential to be realized are overviewed.

Human germ cell formation in xenotransplants of induced pluripotent stem cells carrying X chromosome aneuploidies

It is demonstrated that two X chromosomes are not necessary for reprogramming or maintenance of pluripotency and that there are minimal differences in gene expression, at the single cell level, linked to X chromosome aneuploidies.
