Researchers have successfully used cartilage cells from cow knee joints for cartilage tissue engineering – a finding that could lead to a new cure for osteoarthritis – degenerative joint disease – using stem cell-based tissue engineering.
The research has been published as a doctoral dissertation by Umeå University in Sweden. Articular cartilage is tissue that is found on all the joint surfaces in the body.
