NeoCart®

Study Overview

NeoCart® is a three-dimensional tissue-engineered disc of new cartilage that is manufactured by growing chondrocytes – the cells responsible for maintaining cartilage health – derived from the patient on a unique scaffold. NeoCart® has the potential to accelerate healing and reduce pain by rebuilding a patient’s damaged knee cartilage. It treats pain at the source, creating a similar, functional joint surface as it was before the injury. Ultimately, the goal is to prevent a patient’s progression to osteoarthritis. NeoCart® was acquired as a part of Ocugen’s reverse merger with the original developer of the therapy, Histogenics, in 2019.
