PENSACOLA, Fla., March 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Regenative Labs (Regenative), a leading HCT/P manufacturer, is pleased to announce the publication of its new paper, "The Durability and Efficacy of Cryopreserved Human Umbilical Cord Tissue Allograft for the Supplementation of Cartilage Defects Associated with the Sacroiliac Joint: A Case Series," with Dr. Albert Lai of Desert Pain Specialists.

Written by a team of translational experts, this paper provides a comprehensive analysis of the role of Wharton's Jelly applications in supplementing tissue issues within the refractory sacroiliac (SI) joint in 38 patients. This data comes at an opportune time, as the current standard of care for SI joint pain only addresses the symptoms, using methods such as pain medication, braces, or SI fusion. Costs can range upwards of 30k for a fusion, and the cost of pain management continues to rise as treatment does not address the root cause of the pain.  With the number of surgeries rising each year, it is necessary to implement intraoperative and perioperative protocols that offer minimally-invasive alternatives to arthroscopic repair of the SI joint, such as Regenative's Wharton's Jelly applications.

The research methodology consisted of an observational recording of the Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) and the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis Index (WOMAC), which measure pain, stiffness, and physical function. No adverse events or adverse reactions were observed in the 38 patients. Statistically significant improvements in NPRS and WOMAC scores of the affected SI joint were reported after 90 days.

"We are delighted to see this important research published," said Tyler Barret, CEO of Regenative Labs. "This paper represents a significant contribution to the field of regenerative medicine, and we are proud of the hard work and dedication of Dr. Lai and the entire team."

The paper's topic was previously shared with the media, and the publication of the full paper is expected to generate further interest and discussion around the topic within the regenerative medicine community.

"We hope that this research will contribute to a deeper understanding of the importance of applications of Whaton's Jelly for supplementing missing or damaged tissue, and that it will serve as a valuable resource for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers," concluded Barret.

The paper is now available online at MDPI and is expected to be widely cited and discussed in the coming months. For more information about the paper or to speak with one of its authors, please contact Regenative Labs on their website.
