Regenerative medicine seeks to use the body’s own ability for self-repair to replace injured or diseased tissue. Regenerative medicine treatments use biological substitutes to restore or improve tissue function. The “biological substitute” is either
cell-based, where healthy cells are injected into diseased or damaged tissue to repair the damage
a resorbable implanted scaffold that encourages new tissue formation using the body’s own intrinsic repair processes
a combination of cells and scaffold, where cells are implanted into the repair site after seeding onto a scaffold.
The potential of regenerative medicine to help maintain health and vitality as we age is enormous. Orthocell is committed to bringing the benefits of regenerative medicine to a broad patient population through the development of world-leading regenerative medicine therapies. Orthocell manufactures both cell therapies for cartilage and tendon repair and the CelGro™ collagen scaffold.
