[01/07/2014] Large burns require skin grafting. Surgeons remove split-thickness skin grafts and apply them to the injured areas. Now skin that has been made in a laboratory is meant to help in covering burns as well as chronic wounds and thus promote the healing process. Researchers in Zurich have been working on this for more than 13 years.Cultured skin makes large-scale transplantations possible - Read more

Fat is the best medicine: ”Adipose tissue contains many multipotent stem cells, approximately 500 times more than bone marrow“

[01/07/2014] The not so popular “love handles“ could revolutionize medicine in the near future. In cooperation with the University of Rostock (Professor Hermann Seitz), the human med AG Company currently seeks to develop a device that is able to gently remove adipose tissue during surgery and subsequently isolate stem cells. Fat is the best medicine: ”Adipose tissue contains many multipotent stem cells, approximately 500 times more than bone marrow“ - Read more
