Regenerative medicine Report – House of Lords Science and Technology Committee – 1 July 2013

London : The Stationery Office Limited

Extract from the summary

“Regenerative medicine involves replacing or regenerating cells, tissues or organs in the human body, in order to restore or establish normal function. It includes cell therapy, gene therapy, tissue engineering and other methods, and it has enormous potential to treat and cure diseases. It could also improve the quality of peoples’ lives and generate significant economic benefits for the UK.

In this inquiry we have sought to identify what the UK is doing well in regenerative medicine and any barriers to its future development. We make recommendations to the Government that, if acted upon, would facilitate the translation of scientific knowledge into clinical practice and encourage its commercial exploitation.”
