GeneX(R) Used In Pioneering Stem Cell Research

Professor James B. Richardson of the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital, Oswestry, UK has been carrying out pioneering work combining geneX with selected and culture expanded Mesenchymal stem cells to treat fracture non-unions. The stem cells are collected in a sample of bone marrow, then purified and cultured expanded at the Oscell GMP laboratory (http://www.oscell.enta.net/stem-cells.html).

5 to 10 million stems cells are then combined with geneX and implanted around the fracture site. As a result of these procedures, patients facing a life of disability are finding their injuries healing and can return to a normal active life.
