Regenerative medicine is a science that is constantly progressing. Each day, we are learning about how these state-of-the-art products and procedures are advancing the medical field to areas previously unexplored.
At Gulf Coast, we aim to offer products that are not only top of the line but also groundbreaking in the regenerative medicine industry.
Meet RExO, our newest exosome product. You may be asking, what is an exosome? Exosomes are primarily used in cell signaling and are found in all bodily fluids. These proteins are excreted by one cell and tell another cell what to do. Think of an orchestra and how the conductor ensures all instruments product beautiful music instead of noise. The conductor, in this case, is the exosome.
Exosomes have a variety of reported functions and some of their better-documented activities are associated with a form of immune regulation. Exosomes are anti-inflammatory, anti-fibrotic, cross the “blood-brain barrier,” have minimal risk of clumping, are easy to administer, contain nearly three times more growth factors compared to adult stem cells, and influence the growth of target cells.
Within regenerative medicine, exosome therapy is the latest technology that is impressing doctors – many argue that exosomes may be more important than stem cells due to their unique ability to function as a “messenger” within the body, transferring information from cell to cell.
Potential treatment areas utilizing RExO include:
- Back pain
- Cartilage damage
- Nerve injury
- Degenerated joints
- Joint dysfunction
- Knee injuries
- Rotator cuff injury
- Ligament tears
- Meniscus damage
- Muscle tears
- Tendon tears
