Talk at the Conference: Combination of Cord derived stem cells with PRP (platelet rich plasma) in the treatment of erectile dysfunction Stem cell application is a promising area of research in regenerative medicine, with the potential to treat, prevent, and cure disease. In recent years, the number of studies focusing on Stem Cells for the …
Cell therapies hold significant promise for the treatment of injured or diseased musculoskeletal tissues. However, despite advances in research, there is growing concern about the increasing number of clinical centres around the world that are making unwarranted claims or are performing risky biological procedures. Such providers have been known to recommend, prescribe, or deliver so called ‘stem cell’ preparations without sufficient data to support their true content and efficacy.

The O-Shot is a noninvasive and mostly painless treatment for urinary incontinence as well as other women’s health conditions such as vaginal dryness and post-natal rehabilitation.
If you’ve heard of the vampire facial – made famous by Kim Kardashian, you probably know that the viral aesthetic treatment uses platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP) as an attempt to rejuvenate the skin.
Similarly, the O-Shot – short for “Orgasm Shot” – is a PRP treatment that is aimed at rejuvenating the sensations in both the clitoris and G-Spot by extracting PRP from a woman’s own blood and injecting it directly into the vulva.
Intracavernosal injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) as a treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) is an emerging practice that warrants awareness among primary care physicians and urologists alike. Epidemiologic studies have shown that ED is a highly prevalent condition, affecting more than 300 million men globally, and the use of regenerative medicine, such stem cells, to reverse ED is highly desired.1 In the current era of consumerism, increasing numbers of patients are demanding novel and innovative treatment options. There is a trend toward the global emergence of clinics offering PRP as a treatment for ED for many desperate and vulnerable men; however, despite the introduction and commercialization of this therapy, there remains little evidence to support its use and guide patient or clinician in the decision making process.
Well over ten years ago, medical scientists began to realize that a specific “fraction” of human blood contained special growth factors and healing-inducing properties. This portion of blood, known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), is devoid of red blood cells but contains blood serum. It is what’s responsible for blood clotting and tissue healing. In everyday life, we know PRP as that yellow goo around a scab from whence healing generates. In addition to speeding healing, platelet rich plasma also contains a significant array of growth factors that make it an enhancer of function of the tissue areas that it comes into contact with.
