Genzyme Announces Presentation of New Positive Data on Carticel(R)
Date:3/10/2008

ad low functional scores (overall condition score of 3.4 points on the Modified Cincinnati Knee Rating System). Patients were young (mean age of 37 years) and had moderate to large lesions (mean lesion size of 4.3 cm2) on the femoral chondyles (Lateral Femoral Chondyle, Medial Femoral Chondyle and Trochlea) and most patients had undergone at least one previous treatment for their cartilage injury. At their early follow-up, 75 percent of all patients experienced significant improvement in their knee function (mean improvement of 4.3 in overall condition). Of those patients, 87 percent sustained improvement at the later follow-up time point.

Caron, vice president and general manager of Genzyme Biosurgery, the division that manufactures and commercializes Carticel. "This study demonstrates both the durability and value of Carticel and leads the field to conclude that a vast majority of this patient population maintained improvement years following their initial procedure."

Also at the AAOS meeting, a separate study conducted at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Mass., Dr. Tom Minas reported the findings of a study that compared the results of ACI following a marrow stimulation technique versus no significant treatment (including simple debridement) performed on the same cartilage defect. The results indicate that marrow stimulation techniques may compromise the successful outcome of future ACI. Investigators collected data from 329 consecutive patients treated with Carticel for large and multiple defects (4.8 cm2 per lesion and 8.7 cm2 per patient) and had at least two years follow-up. They concluded that patients who had a previous marrow stimulation technique and were subsequently treated with ACI were three times more likely to fail than patients who ha
