An open clinical trial transplanting CHONDRON (autologous chondrocytes) to ankle cartilage defect patients who are appropriate for the trial, and evaluating the validity and safety for 12 months.
This clinical trial was designed to observe effects of CHONDRON (autologous chondrocytes) for 12 months in patients with ankle cartilage defects. In this clinical trial, 30 subjects were screened- 4 were excluded half way and 26 finished the trial. Full-thickness articular cartilage specimen was obtained from sites that do not have direct articulation within the ankle joint(anterior talus, anterior process of calcaneus, calcaneocuboid joint area.) Gel-type CHONDRON (Fibrin mixed Autologous chondrocytes) was transplanted at the defects. Evaluation variables were AOFAS, 100 mm VAS, HANNOVER score, self-assessment of improvement by the patient, MRI and arthroscopy.

This investigator-sponsored trial attempts to evaluate the effectiveness of Chondron transplantation by tracking subjects who had the Chondron implantation to observe effectiveness.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Chondron (Autologus Chondrocyte) in patients with cartilage defects in their ankle for 18 months
A clinical trial to evaluate the long-term efficacy and safety of a CHONDRON (Autologous cultured Chondrocyte) for 48weeks, and additional 96weeks in patients with cartilage defects in the...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and efficacy of Chondron(autologous cultured Chondrocyte) by comparing between Chondron implantation and Microfracture.
A clinical trial to evaluate the long-term efficacy and safety of Chondron (Autologous cultured Chondrocyte) administered through arthroscopy from the drug's 48 weeks efficacy and safety e...
The goal of this study is to determine whether harvested cartilage from an osteochondral loose body maintains the same viability for implantation as cartilage harvested from the traditional locations ...
Focal cartilage defects in the knee may have devastating effect on the knee joint, where two of the main surgical treatment options are microfracture and autologous chondrocyte implantation. Comparati...
Autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) fails in up to 20% of cases. Advanced intra-articular degeneration paired with an inflammatory environment may be closely related to implantation failure. Cer...
Matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation (MACI) has demonstrated encouraging clinical results in the treatment of knee chondral defects. However, earlier studies suggested that chondrocyte i...
Large HYALURONAN-containing proteoglycans found in articular cartilage (CARTILAGE, ARTICULAR). They form into aggregates that provide tissues with the capacity to resist high compressive and tensile forces.
A type of osteochondritis in which articular cartilage and associated bone becomes partially or totally detached to form joint loose bodies. Affects mainly the knee, ankle, and elbow joints.
A degenerative joint disease involving the SPINE. It is characterized by progressive deterioration of the spinal articular cartilage (CARTILAGE, ARTICULAR), usually with hardening of the subchondral bone and outgrowth of bone spurs (OSTEOPHYTE).
A type of CARTILAGE characterized by a homogenous amorphous matrix containing predominately TYPE II COLLAGEN and ground substance. Hyaline cartilage is found in ARTICULAR CARTILAGE; LARYNGEAL CARTILAGES; and the NASAL SEPTUM.
The joint that is formed by the inferior articular and malleolar articular surfaces of the TIBIA; the malleolar articular surface of the FIBULA; and the medial malleolar, lateral malleolar, and superior surfaces of the TALUS.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
