The Role of Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Regenerative Medicine

Description

Regenerative medicine is the process of replacing or regenerating animal cells, tissues, or organs to restore or establish normal function. This field has the potential to solve the problem of the shortage of organs available for donation and of organ transplant rejection. Recently, application of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) as a means to accelerate the process of regeneration is a new approach. The CAM therapies offer a natural and cost-effective intervention to change the course of chronic disease and may regenerate failing organ systems.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand the effects of CAM therapies on regenerating tissues or organs. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Animal model for the study on complementary and alternative treatments alone or integrated with conventional therapies for promoting tissue or organ regeneration
  • Clinical trial for the study on complementary and alternative treatments alone or integrated with conventional therapies for promoting tissue or organ regeneration
  • Mechanism of complementary and alternative treatments alone or integrated with conventional therapies for promoting tissue or organ regeneration
  • Newly developed technique of assessment on CAM therapy for regenerative medicine, such as imaging techniques (including MRI, sonography, and CT)

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ecam/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/author/submit/journals/ecam/regen/ according to the following timetable:
