GIOSTAR in ZEE TV – Tomorrow’s World
This statistic from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it all: Approximately half of all American adults live with a chronic condition, and nearly one-third suffer from multiple. It’s no wonder, then, that chronic sicknesses significantly affect the American healthcare system.
Nowadays, Western medicine focuses on a disease’s specific symptoms, which mostly relieves symptoms or stops their progression. But persistent illness is a systemic problem that relates to a specific organ or several related ones.
Even if you relieve the problem, it’s only a temporary reprieve because the ailment will eventually recur and progress. Regeneration offers a means for eliminating chronic problems, preventively regenerating new cells, tissues, and even complete organs to return the body to its disease-free physiological state.
For example, let’s examine chronic atrophic gastritis. A common gastrointestinal tract illness, CAG-induced pain is often treated with tablets that neutralize or adjust the GI’s environment. The condition, however, does destroy the cells in your stomach lining and cause metaplasia, which transforms or replaces them with acid-producing versions that live in your stomach.
Through regenerative rejuvenation, the metaplasia cells could be physiologically replaced by newly regenerated cells of the proper type. Eventually, all GI cell types and distribution will be able to maintain the same normal physiological state you had when you were young.
This is just one example of how regenerative rejuvenation works and how it can reduce the increasing financial burden on this country’s healthcare system. The onus of treatment shouldn’t just fall on doctors trying to find a cure.
Looking inward can enable us to replenish what’s already there. It can be a cost-efficient and less invasive version of recuperation.
Regenerating and Revitalizing the Future of Healthcare
Regenerative properties should be of specific interest to a population that’s doing exactly what it’s supposed to: getting older.
The CDC estimates the United States spends approximately $3 trillion in healthcare each year, about 17.5 percent of the country’s GDP. Chronic illness patients aged 65 and older are up to eight times more likely to incur these costs than those younger than 45.
Regenerative medicine holds the potential to curb those costs by providing more effective and affordable long-term solutions and an improved quality of life. Using the chronic GI illness mentioned above, regenerative medicine could renew a GI tract’s compromised mucosal layer. When it’s healthy, it’s more than capable of enduring both the basic and extremely acidic damage caused by internal fluid.
As people age, the GI mucosal layer becomes thinner, which can lead to chronic conditions such as inflammatory atrophic gastritis. Rather than focus on the symptoms of these conditions, physiological regeneration can restore the thickness and sustainability of the mucosal layer, preventing symptoms from recurring.
But regeneration isn’t just confined to chronic GI issues. Skin, as an external organ, is also susceptible to chronic pathological conditions that may be reversed with regenerative medicine. Physiological regeneration of traumatized tissue can prevent scar formation and potential disability. It can also halt the need for skin grafts that can lead to everlasting healthcare costs to maintain or improve your overall quality of life.
Regeneration isn’t just about getting overall healthcare costs under control; it’s about helping people — especially the chronically ill — enjoy the health and vitality of their youth, even into their golden years.
Exploring alternative means of treatment helps make that sustained contentedness possible. The examples above are just a few of the possibilities represented by regenerative medicine’s potential when utilized by those in need.
As more and more people contract or develop chronic illnesses, options outside the traditional treatment arena need to be explored. Make regeneration one avenue you take a long look at.

Experimental and Molecular Pathology
To investigate epithelial membrane protein-1 (EMP1) gene function in Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC) tumorigenesis and development. We first used GEO dataset to analyze the EMP1 gene expression in HNSCC. Second, we investigated the EMP1 protein expression in tissue microassay to analyze the relationship between EMP1 protein expression and TNM stage. Third, the co-expression genes data of EMP1 were extracted from Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia database(CCLE database) , and their correlation were analyzed in The Cancer Genome Atlas HNSCC database(TCGA HNSCC database). Next, the GO (Gene Ontology Analysis) and KEGG Pathway enrichment analysis were carried out. Finally, we overexpressed the EMP1 in HNSCC cell line Cal-27, protein expression were analyzed by Western blot respectively as well as cell viability and migration were evaluated by Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8) and transwell chamber assay. Analysis of GEO dataset concluded that EMP1 gene is down-regulated in HNSCC tumor tissues compared with normal tissues (P<0.05). There was no statistically significant difference of EMP1 gene expression between different T-stage and N-stage tumor tissues (P>0.05). The results of TMA showed that EMP1 protein expression in tumor was lower than that in normal tissue (P<0.05). Expression of EMP1 protein was not correlated with TNM stage of HNSCC. In addition, The Cal-27 overexpressed EMP1 significantly decreased cell viability and the invasion significantly reduced (P<0.05). After EMP1 overexpression ITGA3 and EPHA2 genes were significantly up-regulated, while ANXA1 gene was significantly down-regulated. Our data demonstrated that EMP1 gene down-regulation involved in the HNSCC tumorigenesis and development. It may serve as a novel biomarker for prognostic evaluation of patients with HNSCC.
