Instituto Carlos III Press Release. New Publication

Nota de Prensa ICIII. ITRT

The Instituto de Salud Carlos III, of the Spanish Ministry of Finance and Competitiveness, issued a press release referencing the publication in the scientific journal "Transplantation", of the good results obtained by a Spanish research team with the application of allogeneic bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee.

The multicentre clinical trial was conducted by the Orthopaedics and Traumatology Department at the Hospital Clínico de Valladolid and by ITRT at Barcelona's Centro Médico Teknon. The cell culture procedure was conducted at Valladolid's Institute for Biology and Molecular Genetics (IBGM).

Allogeneic cells - that is, cells transplanted from donors - have already proven to be effective in patients with an infectious disease, whose own cells cannot be cultured.
