Advancements in Regenerative Medicine: Regrowing Knee Cartilage

Regenerative medicine continues to make hopeful advancements. One recent advancement out of the University of Connecticut is being called a “bioengineering breakthrough.” Bioengineers at UConn were successfully able to regrow the cartilage in a rabbit’s knee. This is a big step towards being able to repair human joints and even treating arthritis. What are the next steps for the study? As Thanh Nguyen, UConn bioengineer, explains, “This is a fascinating result, but we need to test this in a larger animal” as well as on an older animal, as younger animals and humans have an easier time healing. The next animal will also need to be studied for up to 2 years to make sure the cartilage is durable and successful.
