Pathway to Solve "Aging Population Syndrome", New Hope Has Been Delivered at TEDx Event
Aging Population Syndrome and Disease-based Medication
Although it is not recognized, people who are over 60 years old have a lower quality of life. This sounds rare but is really true. "Let me tell you what I heard from them, 'my doctor told me I need seven stents in my heart, but now I only put a couple and wait for a while to put them all,' and then they will talk about how to save money for future disease treatment," said
The syndrome results from the disease-based medication, or standard end-stage medication.
Instead of spending rest of our life in drug-keeping, living a quality-maintained healthy life is our ultimate goal. The personalized healthcare is totally different from disease-based medication. It advocates solving personalized problems at an early stage to prevent the disease from deteriorating. Hence, transforming disease-based medication to personalized healthcare is highly demanded and closely related to our lives.
Regenerative medicine, the core of personalized healthcare, is capable of recovering the function of failing organs through integrated approaches including stem cells which naturally occur/stored in the human body and are capable of repairing injured organs. When a body is injured, the injured tissue sends out signals, then the repair materials (stem cells) would respond and be recruited to the injury site for repair. Stem cells, the essence of personalized medicine, however, have not been well recognized until now.
Stem cells are well known to almost everyone. However, their approved clinical applications are rare. Rather than inducing stem cells to a desired cell type before its induction into a patient, Dr. Kang's team created a brand-new approach of utilizing the stem cells, called "Destination-Engaged Vector Evolving Lineage Organ Regeneration (DEVELOR)". In brief, the core concept is to firstly maintain the stemness of stem cells during the culturing and proliferation procedures, and deliver an adequate number of cells to the injury site, which would orchestrate the behavior of stem cells by secreting regenerative signals.
How to use DEVELOR to repair the damaged organs?
