Pluristem's PLX cells perform well in tendon injures in rats

  • Pluristem's (PSTI +2%) PLacental eXpanded (PLX) cells produce positive results in pre-clinical trials of rats with tendon injuries.
  • "PLX-treated tendons demonstrated better early structural properties at two and four weeks compared to saline-treated controls," Pluristem says.
  • "As an 'off the shelf' cell source, PLX cells could provide an effective option to improve tendon healing," says Dr Scott Rodeo, the Principal Investigator for the study.
  • PLX is undergoing a Phase I/II clinical trial in Germany to test it in muscle injuries. (PR)
