It would revolutionise treatment for the condition because it would not have the side effects of many of the current drug-based treatments for the condition
MILLIONS of Britons could be spared the agony of crippling arthritis pain after a major breakthrough by scientists
They have developed a pioneering simple new technique to generate cells which can go on to re-grow damaged cartilage and even bone.
The process offers major hope for people suffering in daily pain from the degenerative joint condition.
It paves the way for a quick treatment – possible as a single injection of the stem cells – directly into the effected joint to end the agony.
At least 8.5 million Britons suffer from osteoarthritis which is caused by wear and tear on joints where the cartilage that cushions movement is worn away.
Bones then come into contact with each other and the friction makes joints swollen and extremely painful.
Now, researchers from the University of Texas Health Science Centre in the US, have used a combination of small molecules to generate mouse cells that can form bone and cartilage.
They say the new method could allow them to re-grow broken bones and mend cartilage damage to back discs and joints.
It would revolutionise treatment for the condition because it would not have the side effects of many of the current drug-based treatments for the condition.
The research team, led by Dr Naoki Nakayama, created special stem cells known as pluripotent stem cells from mouse embryos.
This type of stem cell has the ability to become any cell type in the body.
