Event Introduction

◊ Swiss Stem Cell Foundation

Adipose tissue is a powerful source of stem cells for regenerative medicine and the use of these cells in treating human disease are becoming standard in these times, where several clinical trials are running worldwide to check the feasibility but also the efficacy of mesenchymal stem cells for medical treatments. A central figure in the collection of ASCs is the plastic surgeon that can be considered the first step in the process of disposing ultimately of stem cell therapies. Harvested cells are processed and/or cryopreserved for years and eventually used in authorized stem cell treatments. An emerging domain of treatment rely on safe and standardized GMP- prepared cells or expanded cells for autologous or even allogeneic use. This year’s meeting address expansion processes and eventual cryopreservation of adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells for patient’s treatment with a focus on intra-venous injection of cells. The final aim of the meeting is thus to develop awareness that regenerative medicine is an interdisciplinary process where many actors are involved from the plastic surgeon to the final specialist user and we are just at the beginning to show how it could be conceived and designed to work in the real world.


The standardization of autologous therapies to promote innovative biotechnologies in medicine and plastic surgery, in particular in regenerative fields, for hair loss appears to be essential. Advances in autologous stem cell-based therapy (ASC- BT) and in autologous not-activated platelet-rich plasma (A-N-A-PRP) or autologous activated PRP (A-A-PRP) use, aiming to improve hair regrowth (HR) by in vitro and in vivo regeneration, should be performed. The effects of growth factors (GFs), released during ASC- BT and contained in A-N-A-PRP and A-A- PRP, represent these advances, through cell proliferation/differentiation, and neo- angiogenesis improvement. As is known, A-N-A-PRP and A-A-PRP contain many signaling proteins and after platelet activation discharge several major GFs such as PDGF, b-FGF, EGF, VEGF, TGF-β, and IGF-1 Every one of these is implicated in a specific biomolecular pathway during HR. Manufacturing platelet recommendations and steering on their employment in regenerative fields have been performed. On the same line, the Academy of International Regenerative Medicine & Surgery Societies (AIRMESS) decided to present, the ASC-BT and PRP’s guidelines.

In fact, a significant article number on the different procedures for A-N-A-PRP, A-A-PRP preparation, and on ASC-BT use have been published, but the results are often contrasting, also due to a wide biological and temporal variation of GFs and platelets and also for the different procedures of stem cell isolation such as enzymatic versus mechanic The aim of this congress is to discuss the impact of different PRP and ASC-BT preparation methods on HR, describing the related European rules and bio- molecular pathway. We believe that the future will be based on regenerative -based therapies. The aim of this congress is to discuss the impact of different PRP and ASC-BT preparation methods on HR, the data analyzed intended to clarify any doubts regarding the molecular mechanism in which PRP and ASC-BT are involved, suggesting recommendations in HR.
