Dr. Dennis Lox on Stem Cell Treatment
Dennis M. Lox, MD, on Stem Cell Treatment: Outsmarting the Body. There has been much made of controversies surrounding many areas of stem cell treatment. Tissue type : Bone Marrow versus Adipose Tissue. Cell Type: The Mesenchymal stem cell versus the Hematopoietic stem cell.
In which vector will more cells be obtained? Can the harvested tissue/aspirate be modulated effectively to produce an effect that is desired?
Is this effect a generalized approach? Or is it a structured approach based on classification of the treatment problem?
If it is the latter, modulating variables can be used to enhance treatment success. PRP may be used to enhance stem cell therapy. Cytokines may enhance both PRP and stem therapy effectiveness. Knowledge of when and how to use cytokine modulation may achieve optimal success. The environment or stem cell niche may be ineffective and cytokine modulation may render the cell transplanted into the niche more effective as well as the homing of the niche. It can seem rather complicated, and it is. The point being Dennis M. Lox, MD, is an expert in Sports and Regenerative Medicine. It is his just part of what he does to help assist patients in understanding their condition, and arriving at a treatment option that is viable and consistent with their goals.
