Health Canada has given approval to Toronto Western Hospital to conduct the first mesenchymal stem-cell trial for arthritis in North America. The researchers are looking to first and foremost demonstrate that the stem-cells are safe, but will also be looking for any improvement in the symptoms of osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis. The research will study mesenchymal stem cells (which are multipotent stromal cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types, including: bone cells, cartilage cells, and fat cells) after they have been injected into the patient’s knee. For more information, please contact stemcells4arthritis@uhn.ca
