About CARTISTEM treatment for Osteoarthritis
CARTISTEM is an off-the-shelf stem cell drug which is prepared by isolating mesenchymal stem cells from umbilical cord blood of the newborns and culturing the isolated cells, and can be immediately supplied to patients when required.
Therefore, only the cells with excellent therapeutic capacity for cartilage regeneration can be screened and selected in advance to ensure consistent therapeutic efficacy. The hUCB-MSCs, a major component of CARTISTEM, are the most primitive type of adult stem cells because neither have they undergone aging process nor have they been exposed to other external environments.
How the treatment works?
Injury factors present in the micro-environment of damaged cartilage stimulate allogeneic hUCB-MSCs to secrete proteins leading to complex actions promoting cartilage differentiation, modulating inflammation and inhibiting activities of cartilage decomposing protein and induce regeneration of cartilage.
Features of CARTISTEM
Effective at all ages!
Micro-fracture treatment is effective only for the patients younger than 40 years old. In contrast, CARTISTEM is able to regenerate cartilage across all age groups including over 40 years of age without no upper age limit.
Effective for large size defects!
CARTISTEM treatment was able to achieve regeneration of both small and large cartilage defects while the micro-fracture treatment showed significantly lower rate of improvement for the larger sized defects in subgroup analysis.
