A study team from Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine in Japan has developed a treatment for hard to heal bone fractures. The treatment makes use of autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells to promote proper healing in fractures that fail to heal on their own.
While most bone fractures heal without complication, about 10% of fractures will not heal normally, leading to infection, bone loss, and long term disability. Utilizing the patient’s own stem cells prevents these complications and results in successful bone union thereby eliminating the potential for the bone fracture to result in permanent, debilitating trauma.
The research is an example of how scientists are utilizing the patient’s own stem cells to create more effective regenerative treatments leading to better outcomes.
