Study results: Episealer may stop or significantly slow the process leading to OA

Share:

Study results suggest that a permanent bond may form between cartilage and the hydroxyapatite coating of Episurf's Episealer® device, suggesting that implantation may stop or significantly slow the process leading to OA. This is reported to be the first time that such results have been shown.

Results of the sheep study are accepted for the ESSKA 2016 meeting in Barcelona, Spain.
