The American Medical Society for Sports Medicine released a new position statement “to provide sports medicine physicians with information regarding regenerative medicine terminology [e.g., stem cells, platelet-rich plasma], a brief review of basic science and clinical studies within the subclassification of orthobiologics, regulatory considerations, and best practices for introducing regenerative medicine into clinical practice. This information will help sports medicine physicians make informed and responsible decisions about the role of regenerative medicine and orthobiologics in their practice.”
