Professor Caplan is widely regarded as the ‘father of the mesenchymal stem cell (MSC). In this video, aimed primarily at healthcare professionals, he explains that MSCs are really ‘natural drug stores’ for sites of tissue damage. Talking enthusiastically about the Lipogems® process – invented by Professor Tremolada – and the results/clinical outcomes that are being achieved, Professor Caplan explains how the Lipogems® process enables MSCs, taken from your own fatty tissue, to be injected directly into sites of tissue damage, so boosting their local presence and aiding recovery. Professor Caplan is convinced that MSC technology will change the way medicine is practised. A naturally occurring ‘product’ rather than a drug, he describes how MSCs have the entire human geno at their disposal to pick out.
