Allogeneic Mesenchymal Stem Cells – safety and efficacy
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) isolated from bone marrow or adipose tissue are usually being used in clinical trials in an autologous settings, i.e. the patient receives his own cells. Intra-articular injections of autologous MSC were proved to be effective in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis. MSC isolated from the patient’s bone marrow or adipose tissue reduced pain 3 to 6 months after treatment when injected intra-articulary.
