Dr. Robert Bowen was invited to the International Federation of Adipose Therapeutics and Science (iFATS) conference held in Quebec City, Canada on October 5-7 as well as the National Society for Cosmetic Physicians (NSCP) in Las Vegas, Nevada from October 19 -21 to present his research on an improved method of isolating adult stem cells from adipose tissue (fat) using a unique method of liposuction termed: Nutational Infrasonic Liposuction (N.I.L.), trademarked TickleLipo in the US. In his presentation he commented that his research helped validate an in-house study, pending publication, performed by Millennium Medical Technologies, Inc. and certain aspects of a study performed in Brazil by Dr. Leandra Baptista and Dr.Radovan Borojevic published in the journal Cytotherapy in 2009 (PMID: 19878057) which indicated that a large number of adult stem cells can be harvested for immediate use, tissue culture, or cryopreservation, without going through the expensive and time consuming process of using an enzymatic digestion process. Dr. Bowen commented that ,”these cells, that are shaken free by the innate mechanical characteristics of the device, embrace the promise of therapeutic applications to a variety of degenerative conditions including arthritis, congestive heart failure, COPD, chronic wounds, critical limb ischemia, and soft tissue repair”. He went on to further explain that the process is simple, and involves a “mini-liposuction”
