World-first Trial For Tendon Repair Using Tendon Stem Cells Published In The Prestigious American Journal Of Sports Medicine

The technique was the result of more than 10 years development by Professor Ming Hao Zheng's group at the Centre for Translational Orthopaedic Research at the University of Western Australia, one of the top one hundred universities in the World.

"This is a very exciting body of work, which is indicated for a large patient population. There are currently limited treatment options for people suffering from tendon injury and related disorders, as there are no targeted drug therapies and surgery often delivers unsatisfactory results. This published study of Ortho-ATIT strongly suggested that substitution of tendon stem cells enables regeneration of tendon," said Professor Zheng.

Amanda Redwood, a 45-year-old mother of two who participated in the trial, said Orthocell's treatment relieved her of severe elbow pain within 6 months.

"I experienced debilitating symptoms of tennis elbow for more than 16-months before I had the procedure. Within 6 weeks of the injection the pain started to subside, and within 6 months it was gone," said Ms Redwood.

"As a result of this condition I was unable to play tennis and netball with my 2 girls and I could barely lift anything without severe pain, not even a glass of water. It made even the most menial of tasks difficult, so I am delighted that I've been able to make a full recovery so quickly, without surgery."

Ortho-ATIT has been approved by the Therapeutics Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia. The technology is currently available to patients in Australasia who have failed conservative treatment. More information about treatment options can be obtained by contacting Orthocell directly or visiting the company website.
