Stem Cell Bandage In Clinical Trial

Millions of people with knee injuries could benefit from a new type of stem cell bandage treatment if clinical trials are successful. The world's first clinical trial for the treatment of patients with torn meniscal cartilage has received approval from the UK regulatory agency, to start.

The current treatment for the majority of tears is the removal of the meniscus, a procedure that often results in the early onset of osteoarthritis. The trial will treat patients with a cell bandage seeded with their own expanded stem cells. Exciting stuff!

Based on these latest findings, that kind of flexibility is common, the researchers report in the journal Arthritis & Rheumatism.
