Exploring Regenerative Medicine for Knee Injuries: Harnessing the Latest Innovations in Autologous Transplants

Knee Regenerative Medicine at the Cutting Edge
Look at the latest advances in regenerative medicine to treat knee problems. Osteoarthritis occurs when cartilage and the meniscus wear out. Researchers are working to repair the damage caused by meniscal cells with autologous stem cell transplants. A common injury among athletes is ligament tears. These are treated by using the patient’s own tendons, or artificial ligaments. A bovine tendon was successfully transplanted in a sheep and a human clinical trial is soon to begin.
