Dr. Denis O. Rodgerson, Director of Grants and Academic Liaison for NeoStem, added, "We are pleased that we have met our interim milestones and NIH has agreed to award us funding for the second year of these studies on bone regeneration by using VSEL™ stem cells."Periodontitis is a severe form of periodontal disease, which is prevalent in the U.S. and affects up to 90% of the world population. The most severe cases of periodontal disease affect between 5% and 15% of the U.S. population, or between 15 and 47 million Americans. The incidence of new cases of periodontal disease is estimated to be between 1 and 3 million Americans annually, and growing at a 7% rate each year. Studies have shown that periodontal inflammation could have a role in the initiation or progression of coronary heart disease and stroke. Market research experts have estimated that severe periodontal disease represents a market between $1.25 and $1.5 billion annually.
