HSS gets $800,000 for stem-cell therapy trial

Crain's Health Pulse—December 18, 2017

Crain's Health Pulse reported that HSS received an $800,000 grant from the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF).

The grant, which is the largest in OREF history, will be used to fund a phase 2 clinical trial for stem cell therapy in patients who have undergone surgery for a rotator cuff injury. The research team is led by Scott A. Rodeo, MD, sports medicine surgeon at HSS, and Christopher Mendias, PhD, ATC, associate scientist at HSS.

Dr. Mendias explained how his team will be separating out stem cells from fat cells. After the cells are removed, the surgeon performs the arthroscopic repair while the cells are processing.

"By the time the surgery is done, the device has prepared the stem cells. Several million stem cells are injected into the muscle and into the repaired tendon bone interface," added Dr. Mendias.
