Rachna Mehra Encourages Funding of Adult Stem Cell Research
Regenerative Sciences Inc. has received a $2 million investment from Dr. John Malone to be used for stem cell research. Dr. Rachna Mehra believes the donation will help lead the way in the advancement of stem cell research and treatment.
NEW YORK, NY, June 13, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Liberty Media Corp. chairman Dr. John Malone has donated $2 million to Regenerative Sciences Inc., an organization that uses non-surgical adult stem cell procedures to further orthopedic care, according to a Wall Street Journal article. The donation will be used to help fund Regenerative Services' clinical and lab-bases stem cell research, as well as the national expansion of its Regenexx Physician Network. Dr. Rachna Mehra, who specializes in adult stem cell research, hopes that Malone's donation will inspire others to contribute to the cause.
"These are exciting times for the healthcare industry and adult stem cell research and treatment is leading the way towards a shift in paradigm," she said. "Participation from private individuals like Dr. Malone and other celebrities is very good for the future of stem cell research and treatment."
Regenerative Sciences, an outgrowth of the Centeno-Schultz clinic, has been reinventing orthopedic care using stem cells, therapeutic approaches and innovative tools and devices. The company's most-noted initiative, Interventional Orthopedics, treats orthopedic diseases through injections instead of traditional surgeries. Regenexx serves as a platform for like-minded physicians to come together and offer patients more access to the company's various procedures.
Regenexx uses a patient's own stem cells to help repair common injuries and degenerative problems, such as cartilage lesions, torn ligaments and tendons, bulging spinal discs and osteoarthritis. The procedure serves as an alternative to arthroscopic, open-joint and joint replacement surgeries. Dr. Christopher Centeno, Chief Executive Officer of Regenerative Sciences, said he was proud of the company's accomplishments and that it garnered the attention of Malone, a successful businessman, visionary and philanthropist.
"Dr. Malone shares our vision for forging the next generation of minimally invasive regenerative treatments," Centeno said. "The investment will not only bolster our existing stem cell research programs and make our procedures available in all regions of the U.S., but it will help us maintain a leadership role in clarifying the regulatory space for physician stem cell use."
Dr. Rachna Mehra is confident Malone's donation will be the first of many for Regenerative Services and other stem cell research organizations. Often controversial, stem cell research has gained popularity among individuals throughout the years. Rachna Mehra believes the increase in supporters likely has to do with organizations, such as Regenerative Services, pressing on with its research to find cures for orthopedic illnesses plaguing so many Americans today. By publicizing those efforts and gaining sponsorship from more private individuals and well-known leaders, Rachna Mehra is confident stem cell research will not only revolutionize the healthcare industry, but orthopedic patients too.
