Scaffold technology for early intervention of cartilage defects in joints

Clinical study of early treatment of cartilage damage

Link to organisation:

Full description:

We have developed novel scaffold technology for early repair and regeneration of articular cartilage damages, it has potential to delay the use of total joint replacement. This technology has progressed to the clinical trial. We wish relevant patients could be involved in our research and develop better treatment option for patients with cartilage damages.
