Tonogenchoncel-L is a type of treatment which involves taking cells which make up the cartilage and altering them genetically to help stimulate the growth of the cartilage. These modified cells are injected directly into the knee joint with the intention of helping the lost cartilage regrow. If tonogenchoncel-L was licenced in the UK it could provide a unique treatment for people with knee osteoarthritis which has the potential to help cartilage regrow and improve symptoms.
