Mind the Gap: “BioPen” Offers Personalized Bone Reconstruction

The Biopen “fills in” damaged bone with stem cells to facilitate bone regeneration.

Researchers at Melbourne’s St. Vincent Hospital and the University of Wollongong are engineering a device known as the “Biopen” to deliver stem cells to damaged or diseased bones. This novel method of stem cell therapy administers a mixture of jelly and stem cells into the damaged sections of the bone. The jelly is then UV-dried into a scaffolding to facilitate stem cell growth and bone regeneration.

This multi-disciplinary approach to stem cell delivery will allow surgeons to personalize bone reconstructive surgery, accelerating stem cell treatment options that will revolutionize medicine.
