Nasal cartilage relieves osteoarthritis in the knee (Martin Lab and Barbero Lab)


Osteoarthritis of the knee is associated with pain and, ultimately, in many cases a prosthesis. However, researchers now show that cultured cartilage cells from the nasal septum could help. (Photo: University of Basel, Christian Flierl)

Cartilage cells from the nasal septum can not only help repair cartilage injuries in the knee – according to researchers from the University of Basel and the University Hospital Basel, they can also withstand the chronic inflammatory tissue environment in osteoarthritis and even counteract the inflammation.
