Omar Pasalodos, M.D., Memorial Lecture, Eighth Annual: The Path to Cure
With the aging population worldwide growing at an unprecedented rate, the incidence of degenerative diseases is rising sharply. Beyond their immense impact on human welfare and human suffering, degenerative diseases are a major driver of the ever-rising healthcare costs and critically threaten global economic stability.
Dr. Sackstein will review the different types of stem cells and, using osteoporosis as just one example, will describe how stem cell-based “regenerative” therapeutics can yield definitive cures, as opposed to lifelong pharmacologic therapy for a variety of disabling and life threatening degenerative conditions.
