NEWS 17 February: Optimal cartilage repair in the knee one step closer through new clinical study
Hy2Care injectable hydrogel has been developed for functional repair of cartilage defects in joints. The injectable hydrogel is based on joint-tissue mimicking natural polymers; it aims to protect the injured site and is intended to facilitate natural repair.
Millions of people suffer from traumatic cartilage defects following a (sports) accident, slip or fall. They want a fast healing, to get rid of the pain and return to full activity. An optimal repair of these defects is also essential to prevent the onset of post-traumatic osteoarthritis (OA), which could cause many years of chronic pain and immobility.
The unique composition of Hy2Care’s hydrogel creates a natural scaffold for the patient’s own cells to reside in and deposit new cartilage matrix, enabling the body to heal itself.
