Mention of Terumo who Fas has alluded to.

Joey-

Yes - this article simply confirms that the Japanese are serious about regenerative medicine and do not intend to keep the learnings and results only for their own population- i.e. make money out of it.

Just as a reminder- the wound healing approvals that Cytori has in Europe were done -NOT ONLY WITH CELLS- but also with Terudermis -the collagen scaffold invented by Terumo, but also the growth factor FGF-2 which is made by Kaken, but on which the Olympus- Terumo JV owns all rights outside Japan. This -by definition- incorporates them in the Cytori marketing approval process. :winky:

see- Wound healing procedure which was the basis of the BARDA contract

Fas...I was understanding that not all wound treatment had to under-take this process (scaffold and growth factor) such as the article on a foot wound procedure done in Turkey where I thought they simply injected the ARDC gimish directly around the wound and it healed. Sorry...the link no longer worked for me and I discarded it some time ago but I think you may remember this one.
Am I off base in my thinking here ?

Hedge- I did see something from Turkey too, but recall they did not go in detail describing the procedure.

Generally- if there is a void or lets say missing tissue, the cells always require a tissue substitute i.e. a scaffold to re-grow or replace the missing tissue. That is with an open wound (where you can see the underlying bone) or with bone defects, where bone is missing or with spinal disk when the disc gel has " a leak" so to speak (nucleus pulposis).

Biomaterials and cells go hand in hand and need each other. My blog article on biomaterials on this page is not for "nothing" the most read article (over 16000 impressions) - it is technically correct and I think its conclusion will materialize also in the near future after seeing Olympus pick up a lot of money. :happy:

You are correct that there wasnt a step by step detail of that procedure. however they did mark the site to be injected and there was a picture of that which seemed to indicate the direct injection route.
As far as the combination of the use of cells and biomaterials I am quite familar but by no means a expert.
