Welcome to our Regenerative Medicine research library! We understand that finding reputable scientific literature with public access can be difficult and frustrating. Here, we regularly update our database with peer-reviewed, published scientific articles with “open access” so that anyone may access the full text. We urge everyone to research topics that interest them. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any additional requests.

 

Research Articles on Stem Cell and Amniotic Membrane Treatments:

Zelen CM, Poka A, Andrews J. Prospective, randomized, blinded, comparative study of injectable micronized dehydrated amniotic/chorionic membrane allograft for plantar fasciitis—a feasibility study. Foot Ankle Int. 2013
Oct;34(10):1332-9
Summary:
Specialized treatment of plantar fasciitis that can reduce inflammation and promote healing may be a possible alternative prior to surgical intervention. This report demonstrates the results of a randomized clinical trial examining the efficacy of micronized dehydrated human amniotic/chorionic membrane (mDHACM) injection as a treatment for chronic refractory
plantar fasciitis.

Centeno, CJ, Busse D, Kisiday J, Keohan C, Freeman M, Karli D. Increased Knee Cartilage Volume in Degenerative Joint Diseases using Percutaneously Implanted, Autologous Mesenchymal Stem Cells. Pain Physician. 2008; 11(3):343-353.
Summary:
The ability to repair tissue via percutaneous means may allow interventional pain physicians to manage a wide variety of diseases including peripheral joint injuries and osteoarthritis. This study showed that the use of human autologous mesenchymal stem cells percutaneously injected into a patient’s knee with MRI-proven degenerative joint disease resulted in significant cartilage growth, decreased pain, and increased joint mobility.
