A new cell therapy for the treatment of osteoarthritis has been developed at the Cell and Gene Therapy Center of the Bone and Bone Transplantation Unit of the Marianna V. Baldinoyanis-ELPIDA Children’s Oncology Unit at the Agia Sofia Children’s Hospital in Athens.

Treatment involves joint regeneration and significantly reduces inflammation.

Osteoarthritis is a common form of degenerative joint disease that affects 13.1% of Greek adults. The medicines available relieve pain, but surgical replacement of joints requires a long recovery period.

The results of a project carried out within the framework of a national action program called Research-Create-Innovate were published in the international scientific journal Histology and Histopathology.

The next step is to draft and conduct clinical studies to highlight therapeutic effects and possible complications of treatment.
