Abstract

Degenerative diseases are a growing epidemic. Pharmacotherapy aimed at treating the root cause of these diseases, namely, progressive cell destruction and irreversible loss of tissue function, is largely lacking. The disease burden creates an evergrowing need for the development of effective therapies that can repair underlying pathobiology and restore native cellular architecture and organ function. Regenerative pharmacology offers a new frontier for medical therapy. Research and development of stem cell-based biologics aims to establish progenitor cells as effective and safe drugs for achieving structural and functional therapeutic repair in practice.
