SpinalCyte, LLC, a spinal technology company focused on autologous regrowth of the spinal disc nucleus using human dermal fibroblasts, announced today the Japan Patent Office issued a Certificate Of Patent on its patent application “Methods and Compositions For Repair Of Cartilage Using An In Vivo Bioreactor” to regrow the spinal disc, using human dermal fibroblasts. The allowed claims include the use of human dermal fibroblasts from the patient’s own body, to regrow the nucleus of the spinal disc in vivo.

The nucleus pulposus is a gelatinous material that acts as a cushion or shock absorber to the spinal column. It functions to distribute hydraulic pressure in all directions within each disc under compressive loads. The nucleus pulposus consists of chondrocytes, collagenfibrils, and proteoglycan aggrecans.

“This is a major addition to our growing patent portfolio and further distinguishes SpinalCyte as the international leader for regeneration of the spinal disc,” said Pete O’Heeron, Chief Executive Officer. “This is our first Japanese Patent and we are excited the Japanese Patent Office has validated the uniqueness of our technology.”
