A Phase I Single Center Open Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of Intra-articular Mesenchymal Stem Cells in the Treatment of Knee Osteoarthritis and Chondral Defects of the Knee
CONDITION: Osteoarthritis or Focal Chondral Defect
LOCATION: UH Cleveland Medical Center
The purpose of this study is to determine if culture-expanded stem cells (stem cells obtained from the participant’s own pelvic bone and then grown and purified in a lab) can be used to treat osteoarthritis or other types of cartilage injury in the knees.
