CENTENNIAL, Colo., Dec. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AlloSource®, one of the nation's largest providers of cartilage, cellular, bone, skin and soft-tissue allografts for use in surgical procedures and wound care to advance patient healing, has been awarded a patent for its flagship regenerative medicine product, AlloStem® Cellular Bone Allograft.
U.S. Patent Number 9,192,695, titled Allografts combined with tissue derived stem cells for bone healing, highlights AlloStem's partially demineralized allograft bone combined with adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells.
