Traditional Medicine is referred to so by comparing with an innovative realm of health sciences-Regenerative Medicine. Traditional Medicine generally includes eastern and western medicine. As early as 2000 years ago, both eastern and western medicine originally arose from an apprenticeship with nature and natural phenomena. At that time, everyone attempted to harness nature's secrets to solve the health problems. With the development of about 2500 years, there came into being two academic systems: eastern and western medicine. Eastern medicine originated from ancient Chinese medicine and it had brought thousands of benefits and contributions to human health by providing treatments on the basis of plain philosophy and holism. Western medicine experienced two periods. One was during the warring period of ancient Egypt and ancient Rome when the massive wounded were treated, which brought morphologic research from anatomy to applied surgery. The other was during the Renaissance when medicinal chemistry was developed based on alchemy. The result was the rudiments of modern western medicine and surgery.

Historically, both eastern and western medicine have continuously integrated modern scientific discoveries into their medical treatments and thus sustained to develop. However, historians might question what kind of significant benefits, whether in Chinese or western medicine, these discoveries have played in promoting human health and in effectively treating diseases. One vivid example was imagining a modern, well-educated medical doctor holding a knife in his left hand and a pharmaceutical drug, a cellular poison, in his right hand. Then he gave his patient some suggestions: I will use the knife to excise your injured organ to cure disease thus save your life and then I will use the 'poison' to cure the disease. Is that OK, my dear patient? It could be seen from this example that combating poison with poison is the paradigm which we were taught by the older generations of doctors. Since a more reasonable option was not available, western drugs nowadays are made primarily of chemical toxins which are incompatible with life and which, not surprisingly, when applied to diseased human beings, inevitably have deleterious side effects on health. As a result, it is not an unjust comparison to liken western drugs to poison when seen in the context of the rule of life or vitality.


2. Regenerative Medicine

For many centuries, medical professionals around the world have tried to reduce drug toxicity as much as possible while many governments have set up national drug-control administrations to ensure drug safety for humans. However, no substantial and meaningful changes have been made to the traditional medical system due to the inflexible concept of 'poison' and lack of effective nontoxic options for the treatment of disease.

Entering into 21st century, almost every doctor may question which innovative therapy is most promising for modern medicine. We may also ask where is the new medical system that conforms to the principles of human vitality. In which direction should the practice of human medicine go? Recently there are various research approaches to the study of stem cell potential. Foremost of these is embryonic stem cells, hematopoietic stem cells and adult stem cells. No matter which kind of stem cell, the dream of renewing the human body's physiological function lies in stem cell research both in vivo and in situ. The law of in situ regeneration is the only one with any value for medical application, which leads to the concept of Regenerative Medicine.

What is Regenerative Medicine? The term 'Regeneration' implies that the human body can be stimulated to regenerate by itself through the use of its own potential but this stimulation requires both an appropriate trigger or promotion factor and an appropriate physiological environment. In fact, each tissue or organ, including epidermis, epithelium mucosa, vascular endotheliocyte as well as blood cell in human body is engaged in this process all the time. Disease, therefore, can be understood to occur when the speed of repair is slower than the speed of injury. By far, lots of pathological and physiological mechanisms remain obscure to those using the conventional paradigm.


HBRRS aims to prolong human's life to the life of cell, which should be at least 300 years. Humans are made of different cells hence our lives should also be 300 years. This means that if we can ensure the lives of different tissue organs in human body to be 300 years, our lives will also be as long as 300 years. This goal embodies the ultimate mission of Regenerative Medicine, which means achieve the goal of preventing disease and maintaining health by the continuous regenerative potential of our own cells. In the other parts of this innovative kingdom, you can explore our current research status and achievements in the fields of skin regeneration, gastrointestinal mucosa regeneration as well as other multi-organ regenerations.

Our whole framework of HBRRS has epoch-making significance. Disease will be cured and people's health will be improved by the potentials whirling unharnessed within each cell, tissue and organ. Our advanced research in burns management revealed that one type of unknown cell that has a regenerative capacity which may play a significant role in this process. After many years of basic research and clinical study, we found that the cells with regenerative potential turned out to be keratin 19 positive expressed epidermis stem cells which appear to be the primitive cells at the start of human embryonal development. Coincidently, this understanding shed a great light on the mystery of optimal physiological healing of deep burns by regeneration. Using wound repair as a model, we dynamically demonstrated that the process of skin regeneration and development can resemble embryonic tissue development. Based on the discovered skin regenerative law, we conducted experimental studies on the regeneration and repair of tissues and organs of mammals by creating a vital environment. By far, we have had consistent success in repairing and regenerating 55 types of tissues and organs. We have accomplished our goal of in vitro regeneration of 206 tissue organs and transformation of 66 cancer cell lines.
