Apollo Hospitals and RMS REGROW have partnered to launch the first of its kind innovative cell therapy treatment in India for Orthopedic Patients

Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 19 Jun,2017

The partnership will offer two new Regenerative Medicine Cell Therapy products – Ossron™ and Chondron® for bone and cartilage problems, respectively. The two products will address unmet clinical needs in the orthopaedic market with respect to sports injuries, accidents and alternate to hip replacements and knee replacements for a young arthritic knee. In an exclusive tie-up between Apollo Hospitals and RMS Regrow, the treatment therapy will be made available across all Apollo Hospitals, Apollo Spectra Hospitals and Apollo clinics in India.

Ossron™ and Chondron® are the results of a dedicated research team at REGROW. The two products are innovative proprietary and patented technology that have been developed following the regulatory guidelines. Through several clinical trials and evaluation studies over 8 years, the company has achieved the market authorization for the two cell therapy products.

As an exclusive offering, Apollo Hospitals will create a platform for orthopaedic doctors to practise Regenerative Medicine efficiently by conducting live surgical workshops, CME’s for doctors and conferences (national and international).

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Prathap C Reddy, Founder-Chairman of Apollo Hospitals, said: “Bringing innovation in healthcare and addressing the unmet medical needs of India has been the foremost aim of the Apollo Group. In our quest to do so, we also want to encourage research and innovation within India for the people of India. Our association with RMS Regrow is a step to inspire talent in India to further the advancement in developing innovative healthcare treatments to reduce the growing disease burden in India.”

Commenting on the launch Mr. Yash Sanghavi, Founder and CEO of RMS REGROW, “We are delighted to partner with a leader like Apollo Hospitals which offers RMS REGROW unprecedented opportunity to reach patients, pan India. It has taken 8 years of dedicated effort and innovative research to develop the two revolutionary products that will change the modalities for bone and cartilage treatment in India. Since the last 70 years, only a handful of New Chemical Entities (NCE) have been developed in India, which demonstrates a dearth of innovator drugs and new medical technologies to address a large market of bone and joint disorders. In India, more than 15 lakh (>15, 00,000) orthopaedic procedures are performed each year and Regenerative Cell Therapy is a revolutionary treatment methodology which has immense potential to liberate consumers from Joint pain.”

Also present on the occasion was Ms Sangita Reddy, Joint Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals. Commenting on the development, she says “At Apollo Hospitals, bringing innovative treatments to improve the quality of life of our patients is paramount. We have also developed the expertise to create ecosystems that enable use of the developing health technology. These two products are revolutionary and Apollo’s doctors in partnership with RMS REGROW, will develop workshops and educative sessions across India to bring this technology to practice at the earliest.”
