FROM THE COMPANY: REGENER-EYES®
The science of regenerative medicine focuses on stimulating the body's own natural ability to heal and regenerate. These therapies offer hope for patients suffering from the signs and symptoms of inflammation and injury. This results in a natural, non-surgical and long-lasting solution.
The Regener-Eyes® treatment was developed to help patients suffering from inflammation and dry eyes.
Regener-Eyes® is sterile, acellular, and is made from placental derived biomaterials. These biomaterials consist of nutrients such as proteins, cytokines and growth factors.
How it works
These nutrients act to stimulate the body's own natural ability to heal and regenerate.
• Cytokines help to reduce inflammation.
• Growth factors aid in healing and regeneration.
• Hyaluronic acid helps to lubricate and protect.
Regener-Eyes® contains naturally occurring growth factors, proteins, and anti-inflammatory cytokines such as VEGF, TGFβ1, TGFβ3, EGF, HC-HA/PTX-C.PTX-3 (Pentraxin 3), PDGF, ST2, bFGF, KGF, Collagen Types I, III, IV, V and GDF11.
Regener-Eyes® is prepared using our proprietary patented processes to ensure the safety, bioactivity, sterility, and preservation of the product.
The Regener-Eyes® Advantage
• Sterile and acellular (SAL 10 -6, without harmful irradiation)
• Non-steroidal and non-addictive
THE THREE STEPS TO HEALING
1. Remove the Inflammation
The anti-inflammatory cytokines communicate to your body and cells to reduce/remove your inflammation...beginning the healing process.
2. Reduce your Pain and Discomfort
As the inflammation reduces, your pain and discomfort will decrease, helping the body to return to homeostasis.
3. Healing and Regeneration
The growth factors are used as a fuel source to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal and regenerate, just as mother nature intended.
Hey Dry Eye Syndrome Support Community and friends! What I wanted to go over today is the question that we got on the Facebook group, which was wanting a little bit more information on the Regener-Eyes drop. Regener-Eyes, for those who don’t know, is a new drop that just came out recently and was just FDA regulated and approved.
It has been studied at Johns Hopkins University and it uses placental-derived biomaterials. These biomaterials contain proteins, cytokines and growth factors. The placenta, as most of you know, is pretty much a filter that provides nutrients to the baby when it’s developing. Within the placenta, there are tons of stem cells and it is filled with nutrients. It is one of the best areas of nutrients that we know because it does provide these stem cells.
What we’re actually starting to see now is freezing or banking of babies’ placental tissue because we know in the future that this material may be valuable for their health care because we can take the stem cells and create anything we want out of them.
Regener-Eyes and Johns Hopkins have taken the nutrients from the placenta and put them into an eye drop which is intended to reduce inflammation. Most dry eye medications are now focused on reducing inflammation because we know that dry eye is inflammation of the surface of the eye.
The problem with drops that just reduce inflammation is that they don’t help the cells that are dying (such as your Meibomian glands and the cells that are on the surface of your eye, called goblet cells). Those are responsible for producing mucin in your eye. But with this drop, it actually has growth factors in it to aid in the healing and regeneration of these cells, allowing the eye to bring these cells back to life and get them back to their natural state of producing the mucin or the oils that need to be produced. The fact that it uses placental-derived biomaterial is the key with this drop.
