This further showed that ADSCs can not only promote the proliferation of cartilage cells
, but also have a protective effect on the regeneration of cartilage cells
and this effect is similar to that of TGF-[beta]1.
Also, because his group uses growth factors, fibrinogen, and more cartilage cells
, "I suspect we'll have a better outcome," he asserts.
MACI uses the patient's own healthy cartilage cells
to grow new cells, which is similar to older techniques except the procedure is more precise and efficient.
NeoCart is a cartilage-like, tissue engineered implant created from a patient's own cartilage cells

Over the course of a few days, the team directed the modified stem cells to grow into cartilage cells
and produce cartilage tissue.
Preclinical studies performed using MSCs and predifferentiated cartilage cells
have shown promising results.
During childhood and adolescence, bones grow as the result of ossification, a process in which cartilage cells
multiply and absorb calcium to develop into bone.
The study also developed a model of the knee joint which makes it possible to evaluate the mechanical responses experienced by cartilage cells
in healthy and osteoarthritic cartilage during daily activities such as walking.
Arthro Kinetics' CaReS is a patented collagen type I matrix colonized with autologous cartilage cells
. The company provides products in the field of regenerative medicine for the treatment of the human musculoskeletal system.
"Bone, skin, cartilage cells
are strong and resilient," Ozbolat said.
Its NeoCart is an implant produced using a patient's own cartilage cells
which are harvested from non-weight-bearing cartilage surface of the patient's femur.
Medics at the University of Basel in Switzerland have successfully transplanted cartilage cells
from the nose to treat patients with severe cartilage damage.
