11/12/2012 9:46:56 AM

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cytori Therapeutics (NASDAQ: CYTX) announced this morning that a peer-reviewed case series using Cytori’s cell therapy to treat patients suffering from complex cryptoglandular fistula has been published in the current issue of the British Medical Journal: Case Reports. The patients were treated by Dr. David Borowski and Dr. Pud Bhaskar, Consultant Surgeons at the University Hospital of North Tees, a National Health Service (NHS) hospital in the United Kingdom. In this case series, three patients suffering from long-standing complex cryptoglandular fistula-in-ano were treated using fat grafts enriched with their own adipose-derived stem and regenerative cells (ADRCs), processed using Cytori’s Celution® system. The ADRC-enriched graft was injected directly into the tissue surrounding the fistula to close the fistula track. The interior opening of the fistula was closed with a mucosal advancement flap. All three patients remain fully healed at two to three year follow-up, with one patient undergoing colostomy reversal to restore bowel continuity.
