Regenerative medicine is the process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human or animal cells, tissues, or organs to restore or establish normal function. In recent years, this field has emerged as a beacon of hope that offers ground-breaking opportunities in how medical science has approached the treatment of various diseases. Regenerative medicine focuses on using the body’s natural healing mechanisms to restore damaged tissues and cells. With scientists all around the world working on regenerative medicine, there are exciting and enthralling avenues being thrown up for further exploration. This article delves into the fascinating world of regenerative medicine, the relationship between ageing and genetic predisposition, the relation between telomere length and ageing, personalised risk factor calculation, and predictability between biological and chronological ageing.
Ageing And Genetic Predisposition
Ageing is a natural, biological process that happens to every living organism. It is influenced by several factors, including genetic and environmental. Genetic factors play a major role in determining an individual’s susceptibility to developing age-related diseases and his/her longevity. This is known as genetic predisposition, and it refers to the inherent trait that makes an individual prone to developing certain diseases. Variations in our genetic makeup can have an impact on how well we age.
Telomere Length And Ageing Relationship
Telomere length forms the core of any discussion on the link between ageing and genetic predisposition. Telomeres are the protective caps at the end of each chromosome. With each cell division, the telomere length shortens. This process continues up to the point where there is no more length left to shorten, eventually leading to cell growth arrest or cell death. The telomere-shortening process serves as a biological clock in the ageing process. Scientists have discovered that people with shorter telomere lengths tend to experience the signs of ageing earlier than other individuals. The incidence of age-related diseases in people with shorter telomere lengths is also high.

Regenerative medicine has thrown open the possibility of a personalised risk factor assessment. Getting your genes examined and understanding your genetic makeup can help doctors make an informed declaration about your risk of developing age-related diseases. By identifying the genetic markers that predispose you to age quickly and develop diseases, your doctor can plan suitable intervention methods, thereby optimising the effectiveness of regenerative treatment methods.
Chronological age refers to the number of years a person has lived, while biological age is determined by taking into account cellular health, functionality, and overall well-being. One of the most exciting aspects of regenerative medicine lies in its ability to bridge the gap between biological and chronological age. The biological age is often higher than the chronological age due to the rigours of daily life and the wear and tear that the cells and tissues undergo as a result of the lifestyle an individual leads. Regenerative medicine seeks to bridge the gap between biological and chronological age by proposing new concepts that promote cell rejuvenation and regeneration. Innovative treatment modalities like stem cell therapy, telomere manipulation, and gene editing help doctors reverse the effect of ageing at a biological level. This helps to bring the individual’s biological age closer to the chronological age.
