Tendoncel for the treatment of tennis elbow

Drugs

Musculoskeletal

May 2017


Tendoncel is a gel which can be applied directly onto the skin of the elbow. Tendoncel gel contains a mixture of growth factors (a small substance which encourages cells to grow) which help the tendon to repair and heal. A clinical trial of tendoncel in people with severe tennis elbow showed improvements in elbow pain.If tendoncel was licensed in the UK, it would provide a less invasive treatment option to people with severe or prolonged tennis elbow which may delay the need for surgery and improve symptoms.
