Musculo-skeletal implant having a bioactive gradient

Patent Number: 7,351,423

It is known that stem cells migrate towards injured tissue in response to chemotactic gradients.  For example the basal SDF-1 gradient made by bone marrow stromal cells is why it is possible to achieve hematopoietic reconstitution by injecting donor cells intravenously.  Similarly, SDF-1 acts as a gradient to call stem cells into damaged myocardium after a...

Modified hyaluronic acid for use in musculoskeletal tissue repair

Patent Number: 7091191

This patent is useful for making scaffolds onto which stem cells, progenitor cells, or other type of cells can be seeded, and the scaffold together with the seeded cells are implanted in vivo. Previous scaffold technologies using hyaluronic acid have the drawback of very rapid resorption in the body, not giving the cells enough time to integrate and function properly. This patent uses a novel...

Methods for treating dental conditions using tissue scaffolds

Patent Number: 7,309,232

This patent covers a method of forming new dentin (the calcified tissue of the body of the tooth, underneath the enamel) in teeth through administration of a tissue scaffold which stem cells can grow on and regenerate the dentin. Some of the stem cells covered include stem cells from the dental pulp. Indeed it is quite interesting...

In vivo synthesis of connective tissues

Patent Number: 7,375,077

The current invention teaches the generation of connective tissue in vivo.  Specifically, stem cells that have been differentiated into connective tissue cells, such as fibroblasts, are placed in a scaffold, with two other scaffolds surrounding the scaffold containing the cells.  The two other scaffolds on the top and the bottom of the middle scaffold contain growth factors and...

Acellular matrix implants for treatment of articular cartilage, bone or osteochondral defects and injuries and method for use thereof

Patent Number: 7,217,294

This patent covers a method of inducing articular cartilage healing/regeneration through the implantation of acellular matrices that can be used for either delivery of cells or growth factors. The patent is written as one independent claim covering essentially: a)the scaffold; b) a sealant that protects the scaffold from debris; c) the implantation of the scaffold; and d) the deposition of...

Aligned scaffolds for improved myocardial regeneration

Patent Number: 7,384,786

Stem cell therapy for cardiac indications may take a variety of forms.  One of the easiest is intravenous administration of mesenchymal stem cells after a myocardial infarction.  This would require the stem cells to selectively home into damaged tissue.  It is known that various inflammatory agents such as IL-18 and...
