Thanks to the help of a wealthy entrepreneur, Mr. Hugh Osmond, stem cell bandages are now in human clinical trials.  Quoting Medical Express:

Azellon’s Cell Bandage has been designed as an alternative to the current treatment of surgical removal of the meniscus (meniscectomy), a procedure that more than 1.7 million people around the world per year are estimated to undergo. This common orthopaedic procedure often results in the early onset of osteoarthritis, leading to further joint surgery including total knee replacement.

The stem cells are extracted from the patient’s own bone marrow and is then nurtured in vitro for about two weeks before it is injected back into the patient.  Mr. Osmond has a medical degree and has suffered knee injuries in the past.  He feels the potential is enormous.
