American Association of Stem Cell Physicians summitISSCA has released its 2019 regenerative medicine training calendar for physicians, to be held in seven international cities.  

MIAMI,  Dec. 4, 2018—The International Society for Stem Cell Application (ISSCA) has released its 2019 regenerative medicine certification training course calendar, with programs scheduled in seven international cities and updated curriculum. ISSCA’s objective in 2019 is to provide enhanced educational qualifications to physicians looking for a new approach to treat patients suffering with chronic pain, severe injury, and degenerative conditions and diseases.

The two-day regenerative medicine training course, which teaches easy-to-follow protocols for harvesting adipose and bone marrow stem cells from patients in a clinical environment, will also feature new treatment basics involving allogeneic compounds including exosomes and  other compounds derived from (umbilical) cord blood and amniotic fluid, allowing participating physicians to easily and efficiently add certification in cutting-edge regenerative medicine therapies to their practices.

Participating physicians learn how to harvest and isolate bone marrow and adipose-derived autologous stem cells to use in treating multiple conditions.

The two-day course begins with a four-hour lecture on advances in regenerative medicine. Participating physicians will receive more than 12 hours of hands-on training with live patients in protocols for obtaining stem cells from patients, applications that they can take back to their medical offices or clinics and begin using immediately.  

Attendees will also receive 12 protocols in digital format to take with them, and gain knowledge and practical skills to easily add regenerative medicine therapies to their practices.

Physicians will also receive access to the online stem cell training course to review all content and procedures introduced in the 2-day clinical training course, patient forms and guidelines, procedure informed consent forms, didactic lectures, training booklets and more.

The 2019 ISSCA training course calendar is as follows:

MIAMI, Feb 19, 2018—Amine Rafik, M.D., Ph.D., a member of the Global Stem Cells Group Advisory Board, will be a keynote speaker at the International Association for Stem Cell Application (ISSCA) Regenerative Medicine Cell Therapies Symposium in Istanbul, Turkey April 28, 2018. Rafik will speak on the role of adipose-derived stem cells in regenerative medicine as an attractive alternative to the use of stem cells derived from bone marrow and other sources, due to their abundance in fat and their ability to be easily harvested.

Amine Rafik, M.D., Ph.D

Rafik will present a retrospective review of patients treated for leg ulcers with lipofilling between 2011 –  2014 at the National Centre for Burns and Plastic Surgery, University Hospital. Ibn-Rochd Casablanca, Morocco.

Rafik’s lecture will include patient demographic data and digital photographs taken on the day of each patient’s surgery and every day thereafter. ASC patients received three treatments of 20 cc of autologous adipose stem cell injections in the subcutaneous tissue surrounding the ulcer with time to wound closure defined as the time at which the wound bed was completely re-epithelialized and filled with new tissue.

He will discuss study results revealing the average time for wound closure in adipose stem cell (ASC) recipient patients compared to control group patients. He will also examine the study’s conclusion that suggests local transplantation of autologous adipose stem cells could accelerate wound healing, and that some clinical aspects of wound healing, as well as the potential for therapies based on stem cells, represent a feasible therapeutic approach to the treatment of clinical wounds.

Rafik is a consultant and plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgeon at Al Farabi Hospital in Morocco. He specializes in reconstructive plastic surgery particularly for the face, head, and neck, as well as for patients who require reconstructive surgery following treatment for skin cancer or trauma. Rafik also performs cosmetic surgery and microsurgery.

He completed his plastic surgery training in Casablanca and was awarded full membership to the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery in 2015, and the European Association of Maxilla-Facial surgery in 2016.

He is a reviewer for many international indexed journals, including; OncoTargets and Therapy Journal, the British Journal of Medicine and Medical Research, and the Cancer and Clinical Oncology Journal, published by Canadian Center of Science and Education, where he is a member of the editorial board.

The Istanbul international symposium is part of ISSCA’s mission to support a paradigm shift from traditional healthcare solutions to regenerative medicine and provide the latest innovative discoveries and developments in all areas of stem cell research. The symposium will host a group of renowned international speakers, experts in the field of stem cell and regenerative medicine, who will provide a full day of rigorous scientific discourse directed to physicians.

The day’s events will incorporate information on stem cell biology, medicine, applications, regulations, product development, and commercialization, business opportunities, challenges, and potential strategies for overcoming those challenges.

MIAMI, Feb 19, 2018—Leslie Mesen, M.D., a leader in the field of anti-aging medicine in Latin America and medical director of Global Stem Cells Group affiliate Stem Cell Center in Escazu, Costa Rica, will be a keynote speaker at the International Association for Stem Cell Application (ISSCA) Regenerative Medicine Cell Therapies Symposium in Istanbul, Turkey April 28, 2018.

ISSCA Leslie Mesen

Leslie Mesen, M.D.

Mesen will present a lecture detailing the wound-healing potential of mesenchymal stem cell procedures—both SVF and BMAC—in wounds when no other treatment options exist. Mesen will discuss his experience successfully treating a serious foot wound using mesenchymal stem cells in a 45-year-old patient. The wound was the result of a 30.000-volt shock caused when the patient came in contact with a high-tension power line. The shock traveled down the patient’s leg and exited through his left foot, leaving the wound and underlying structure exposed.

Three months post-injury, the patient’s foot wound was not healing. Mesen administered an SVF autologous stem cell procedure and, four-weeks post-stem cell treatment, the wound showed significant improvement (70 percent wound closure) with clear new tissue growth visible around the wound. Mesen then performed an activated PRP procedure to further stimulate cell division.

Two weeks after the PRP treatment, the patient was walking in shoes, and underwent a final stem cell procedure. Over a period of five weeks, the patient—an electrician– recovered the ability to care for himself. He is expected to return to work soon.

Mesen is board certified in anti-aging and regenerative medicine by The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and a pioneer in anti-aging medicine in Latin America.

He has extensive experience as the chief medical officer of three highly recognized anti-aging institutes: Costagenics Age Management program (2007-2010), Anti-Aging Institute of the Americas (2010-2013) and the Anti-Aging and Wellness Clinic (2014- present).

Mesen studied medicine at Universidad Iberoamericana (UNIBE) in San José, Costa Rica and receives continuing education courses in the United States and Latin America. In the U.S., he has trained at the University of Miami Jackson Memorial Hospital. His range of services encompass all aspects of aging, delivering programs tailored to each patient’s unique needs. Mesen offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, HRT, hair regrowth treatments, intravenous infusions, and a range of other anti-aging and aesthetic treatments.
