Over 9,000 patients have received regenerative medicine treatment in Villa Clara

medicos Villa ClaraThe Regenerative Medicine Services Center in the central province of Villa Clara has treated over 9,300 individuals since its creation ten years ago. Mainly serving those living in the region, they have significantly improved quality of life with the use of innovative techniques.

“The use of regenerative medicine seeks to repair, replace and regenerate cells, tissues and organs with the aim of restoring or recovering the regular functioning of the body,” explains Dr. Manuel Antonio Arce González, researcher at the Unit of Biomedical Research in Villa Clara and head of the Regenerative Medicine Services in the territory. He also said that, given the qualities of this medicine, it is recently used to treat lung lesions in patients who recovered from COVID-19.

Related to this therapy, it is included the use of autologous stem cells in the treatment of conditions such as osteoarthrosis of the knee and the hip and pseudo arthrosis. People who suffer from herniated intervertebral discs, ischemic heart disease, Peyronie’s disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, have required these services as well.

Another novelty of this service is the use, for the first time in Cuba, of a fibrin biomaterial rich in platelets and leukocytes, a highly useful product in the repair of damaged tissues, whose one of its qualities is its possibility to adapt to any part of the organism, its regenerative action and its capacity to speed up the recovery of damaged tissues.

Researchers at the Unit of Biomedical Research, from the University of Villa Clara, work in new variants of tissue regeneration, such as the liquid forms, which have shown very promising results in the treatment of functional dysphonia in the field of otorhinolaryngology, something new in Cuba and the world.
