New Biomaterial Could Help In Knee Cartilage Repair

New Biomaterial Could Help In Knee Cartilage Repair 

 Abnormal Cartilage

A new biomaterial developed by Cartilix, a biotech startup based in Foster City, CA, could dramatically improve the success rate of knee-cartilage repair surgery, making the procedure more accessible to patients with bad knees. The new material, called ChonDux, consists of a polymer hydrogel that, when injected into the knee during surgery, guides the regeneration of cartilage by stimulating repair cells in the body.
