HKU biomedical engineers develop new cartilage regeneration technology to grow cartilage from one’s own cells for cartilage repairs

A University of Hong Kong research team, led by Dr Barbara Chan, Associate Professor of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, has developed a new cartilage regeneration technology to grow cartilage tissues out of cells taken from one’s body.

The cells, in particular stem cells extracted from one’s bone marrow, can be grown into cartilage tissues of the shape and size fit for cartilage repairs and replacements. Since the replacement parts are fully biocompatible, patients could be benefited from rapid healing without the need to harvest donor cartilage from the patients.
