Advancing Autologous Cell Therapy for the Treatment of Serious Conditions
About Autologous Therapy
Autologous cell therapy uses a patient’s own cells for the treatment of a condition or disease. The cells are collected from the patient and expanded or multiplied outside the body, then reintroduced to the same patient. Advantages for this type of cell therapy include minimizing the risk of rejection and therefore the need for immunosuppressive therapy.
From Tissue to Treatment
- Collection/Isolation: Physicians collect small target cell tissue samples from individual patients, then ship to a Vericel cGMP certified manufacturing site. The specific cell types are then isolated from the tissue based on the condition being treated.
- Expansion/Implantation: Using well-validated techniques and growth factors, the cells are expanded several million times and prepared by the surgeon for implantation into the same patient.
