Amniotic Fluid Products Probably Don’t Contain Stem Cells, but May Still Modulate Healing

In vivo amniotic fluid is known to contain growth factors and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), which prior research has suggested may aid in tissue healing. Several companies have injectable amniotic fluid products  (AFPs) on the market based on this  prior research, but it’s unclear exactly what the composition of these AFPs is and whether they [...]

New Biologics Guidelines for Low Back Pain

The use of regenerative medicine has been expanding as its power to help heal patients has become increasingly apparent. However, the decision about what and who to treat with these therapeutic compounds can be tricky, especially given the variable and occasionally scarce data about certain applications. TOBI Alumni Faculty, Annu Navani has spearheaded a massive [...]
