The study, using 36 donated allografts, attempts to show the best way to help a patient heal after a posterior cruciate ligament injury. This ligament, found in the back of the knee, is commonly torn in sports-related injuries. The tissue from those 36 donors provides a clinically relevant research tool that will advance the field of orthopaedic sports medicine."Donating tissue for research is crucial in fulfilling our mission to honor the gift of donation," said Thomas Cycyota, President and CEO of AlloSource. "When an individual is selfless enough to become a donor, it is our responsibility to see that their tissue is used to change lives in whatever way possible. Research tissue accomplishes that goal by providing doctors with new and important insight into how they can best heal their patients. The gift from those donors lives on in the amazing research produced by brilliant minds."
