This patent continues to add to the company's expanding intellectual (IP) property portfolio.
US Patent 8871199 B2 focuses on the use of an inflammatory agent to prompt repair of cartilage by stem cells. "Consider this a patent on the use of a 'till the soil' injection before you plant the seeds (stem cells)," stated company CEO, Christopher Centeno, MD.
The new patent is key in protecting Regenexx intellectual property on their proprietary same-day stem cell procedure for orthopedic conditions. Regenexx has been clinically studying and publishing on this procedure for many years.

The Regenexx® Procedures are the nation's most advanced non-surgical stem cell and blood platelet treatments for common joint injuries and degenerative joint conditions, such as osteoarthritis and avascular necrosis. These stem cell procedures utilize a patient's own stem cells or blood platelets to help heal damaged tissues, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, spinal disc, or bone.
