A product in our regenerative medicine pipeline that is directed toward the regeneration of periodontal tissue lost as a result of periodontal disease. In collaboration with our research partners, we are currently conducting for a clinical research.
Product Concept and Characteristics
Periodontal disease is an inflammatory disease caused by periodontopathic bacteria, and is an important causal factor in the loss of teeth in adults, since the tissue supporting the teeth is gradually destroyed. Conventional methods of treatment have mainly involved eradication of the pathogenic agent, but regeneration of periodontal tissue has not been pursued aggressively. Our cell sheet for periodontal tissue regeneration is a product using periodontal membrane cells, which are involved in regeneration of teeth (cement) and gum, as a starting material and cultured in temperature-responsive cultureware. CellSeed is developing this product to regenerate periodontal tissue which lost through periodontal disease via its transplantation.
