The incentive of this argument is a comment on a post over at fellow life extension blog Fight Aging! titled You Can’t Row the Whole Distance With Oars Made of Stem Cells.
1. Currently the biggest grants in life sciences are in regenerative medicine and stem cell biology.
2. The rate of progress is very fast (if not the fastest) in stem cell biology, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine comparing to the other branches of life sciences due to the growing number of researchers and grants in the field.
3. Early disruptor candidate stem cell therapies will make regenerative medicine economically and generally acceptable in society.
4. Systemic regenerative medicine is a coherent and inclusive engineering approach to eliminate all aging related problems indefinitely.
Definiton: Systemic regenerative medicine theoretically means the continuous, gradual and consecutive regeneration of every tissue and organ of the human body n times by combined regenerative medicine approaches, i.e. tissue engineering (in vitro grown organs and tissues implants or parts of them), systemic (via circulation) and locally targeted stem and progenitor cell transplantation, and endogenous stem cell niche activation with proper growth factor delivery aiming to maintain the physiological turnover and condition of the human body.
5. Taking the above premises into consideration it is very rational to assume that systemic regenerative medicine has a real chance to reach its goal in itself within the next decades.
/If the current rate of progress will remain stable and will be focused throughout these decades/
