Abstract Regenerative medicine aims to replace a body function or specific cell loss. It includes therapies at the forefront of modem medicine, issuing from translational biomedical research. Transplantation of organs and cells has revolutionized the management of patients for whom medical treatment is a failure. Unfortunately, organ shortage is limiting treatment possibility. As an example, among the 15,000 patients with type I diabetes in Switzerland, only approximately 30 can receive a pancreas or an islet transplant per year. Second example, 500 patients die each year in Switzerland from alcoholic cirrhosis because no treatment is available. Transplantation of islet cells, hepatocytes, mesenchymal stem cells or dopaminergic neurons represents hope fora therapy available for large populations of patients.
