New Non-Surgical Stem-Cell Procedure Relieves Degenerative Joint Disease
Date:11/8/2007

First-of-its-kind procedure from Colorado-based company

DENVER, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Regenerative Sciences, Inc., has launched its patent-pending Regenexx(TM) procedure, which uses a patient's own stem cells to regenerate bone and cartilage -- a welcome relief for the more than 20 million Americans who suffer from painful and debilitating orthopedic conditions.

"The Regenexx procedure is different from all other treatments available today," said Chris Centeno, M.D., creator of Regenexx and an international expert and specialist in musculoskeletal, spinal and neurological injury. "Prior to Regenexx, physicians were limited in what they could offer degenerative joint patients: surgery or life with pain. Now physicians have a new tool in their tool kit."

In sanctioned clinical trials, Regenexx has been demonstrated to be safe and regenerates normal healthy tissues. A patient's stem cells are extracted with a needle from the hip, grown in culture at a Rengerative Sciences lab and then re-implanted into the patient at a doctor's office with a "needle out, needle in" approach, which substantially reduces downtime for the patient.

Unlike joint replacement or micro fracture that require weeks or months of being on crutches and pain medicines, the Regenexx procedure has no downtime. Most patients return to normal activity within 24 hours of completing the procedure.

A published clinical trial was conducted with a 46-year-old woman who had a two-year history of knee pain that began after being kicked in the shin during a martial arts class. Bone marrow was drawn from the patient, and in the next nine days, the marrow was used to grow mesenchymal stem cells, which have the ability to grow into bone, cartilage and muscle tissues. The grown stem cells initially taken from the patient were injected into her knee once a week for the next three weeks. Three months after the procedure, the patient reported that her pain had essentially disappeared. A MRI confirmed that the defect on her femur had been reduced by one-third.

Repair of the degenerated or injured area usually takes place in two to three months, and many patients feel better in one to three months.
