One regenerative technique that has shown success is stem cell therapy, a non-surgical treatment capable of repairing the joint and supplying the affected joint with chondrogenic (cartilage forming) bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSC).
Stem cells obtained from the blood of bone marrow called as mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) are the main source for the growth of the cartilage in the arthritic joint.(3,2) mesenchymal stem cells are multi-potent stem cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types during tissue repair processes.[R] They majorly differentiate collagen secreting cells, bone forming osteoblasts and cartilage forming chondrocytes.
