The potential applications are still being researched, but in Mexico they have mostly been used for orthopedics, lesions in articulations such as the knee, hip and shoulder or for diabetes. We are running an interesting protocol on autism and stem cells also can be used for neuro-degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s. There are also intravenous applications to help regenerate tissues and cells, as stem cells have anti-aging properties that are popular with athletes. Stem cells help our cells regenerate. The next five years will be very interesting. Legislation has to change and if the authorities understand that Mexico could become one of the most innovative and leading countries in the area we could make rapid advances. Regulation would need to be more flexible to allow R&D, because in other countries much of the R&D is financed through bursaries and the academic world. We are limited in this regard in Mexico.

Mexico Health Review asked industry players to explain which potential applications they are researching and foresee for the Mexican market.
