SEMINAR STEM CELL, GENETIC AND REGENERATIVE MEDICINE IN CONJUNCTION WITH VENOUS AND LYMPHATIC DISE
UNDERSTANDING STEM CELL AND REGENRATIVE MEDICINE IN CARDIOLOGY FIELD
Medical Faculty Muhammadiyah Prof DR. Hamka Univer
Regenerative medicine is a branch of translational research in tissue engineering and molecular biology which deals with the "process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function". Unfortunately, humans lack adequate regeneration in the heart and many other organs that are commonly ravaged by modern diseases.
Stem cell biology is already changing how we approach human genetics and drug discovery, and clinical efforts to harness stem cell biology for heart failure are well underway. Here we predict that regenerative biology will initially struggle to hurdle economic and technical barriers for realistic treatments of heart diseases. However, regenerative biologists are beginning to design new approaches that were previously unimaginable, and ultimately regenerative medicine will have a profound impact for heart diseases.
Most vein and lymphatic disorders fall into one of three categories: Varicose veins are enlarged veins that are visible through the skin and may appear as blue or purple, twisted, knot-like cords. Varicose veins can occur anywhere in the body, but are more commonly found on the legs. Lymphedema is localized fluid retention that is caused by inadequate drainage of lymph fluid. The poor lymph drainpage causes collection of extravascular fluid and a firm swelling of the affected limb (arm or leg). Venous thrombosis occurs when blood clots obstruct or block veins (blood vessels that carry blood from the body back into the heart). Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a type of venous thrombosis.
This meeting is hold due to the reason of stem cell still as an emerging science in Indonesia especially dealing with heart disease. Vein and lymphatic disease also as the forgettable disease that not every clinician knows. We provide not only the basic science of regenerative medicine but also the clinical practice of vascular medicine especially vein and lymphatic disease.
