Regenerative medicine is a field in medicine that relates to the ability to correct congenital anomalies and to repair or replace tissues and organs that have been destroyed by age, disease, or trauma. To date, promising preclinical and clinical data supported the possibility of using regenerative medicine to treat both chronic diseases and acute insults, as well as maladies affecting a wide range of organ systems and contexts, such as dermal wounds, cardiovascular diseases and traumas, cancer treatments, and more. One of the regenerative medicine therapies that have been used widely is stem cells. Stem cells, especially mesenchymal and hematopoietic stem cells, play an important role in treating chronic diseases, such as leukemia, bone marrow, autoimmune disease, and urinary problems. Despite considerable advancements in stem cell biology, their applications are limited by ethical concerns about embryonic stem cells, tumor development, and rejection. Nevertheless, many of these constraints, are being overcome, which could lead to significant advancements in disease management. This review discusses the current developments and advancements of regenerative medicine therapy (RMT) advancements in Malaysia compared to other Asian countries. The limitations in the application of RMT are also highlighted.
