Positive findings in stem cell paper

Published

A new peer reviewed paper has evidenced the effectiveness of Micro-Fragmented Adipose Tissue (MFAT) in treating osteoarthritis of the knee.

It shows that, out of 110 knees assessed for patient-centred outcomes of pain, functionality and quality of life, 81% of people responded positively and had an improvement in their arthritis and a significant decrease in their experience of pain.

Conducted over 12 months on patients at The Regenerative Clinic in London, the results show that more than 4 in 5 patients have responded well to their Lipogems treatment for arthritic knees.

Simon Checkley, CEO, The Regenerative Clinic, says: “The potential is clear and we must now fully document the positive effects of using Mesenchymal stem cells, derived from fat, as an alternative for many orthopaedic conditions.

“This is a minimally invasive procedure that can be an alternative to major surgery. It can even aid post-surgery recovery. There are no major incisions or cuts. It can help in injury or with a long-term condition that limits daily activity and as a minimally invasive alternative to pain relief.

“There is much more work to do in proving the value of this treatment and we now need to validate findings with a long-term randomised controlled trial.”
