How Stem Cell Therapy Can Help Repair and Regenerate Your Body

By Dr. Mercola Kristin Comella,1 named No. 1 on the Academy of Regenerative Practices list of Top 10 stem cell innovators, has been a stem cell researcher for nearly two decades. In this interview, she discusses the enormous regenerative potential of stem cell therapy. Comella, who holds degrees in chemical and biomedical engineering, began working with stem cells in graduate school, using a technique called magnetic cell sorting, which involves tagging nanoparticle magnets onto cells and then separating the cells based on the proteins they express. “What we’ve learned over the years is that stem cells express different proteins than other kinds of cells in your body,” she explains. “That began my career in the field of stem cells.” Stem Cells for Tissue Regeneration Over the years, she’s worked for several different companies. At a start-up in Maryland, she used stem cells from bone marrow (culture-expanded mesenchymal stem cells) for meniscus regeneration. By placing the
