Stem cell jab for arthritis could ease pain

11th July 2012

The charity Arthritis Care has welcomed the initial findings of trials of a new stem cell therapy.

The treatment, which has been successfully trialled on animals, sees an injection of stem cells taken from body fat used to help the body regrow tissue and cartilage that has been damaged by the degenerative condition. Although still at an experimental stage, experts from the charity say the therapy could be “transformational” for the six million people in the UK who suffer from the condition.
