Very interesting.  I found this record of clinical trials:
http://clinicaltrials.gov/show/NCT01471236

This of course is the "holy grail".

Hi Danix,

thanks for the info. This is great news. Science is heading in the right direction.
I'm only 36 and I believe that our generation will be the lucky one to have new discoveries like this one fix our knee problems once and for all.

I also found a new product called Chondrofiller which is similar to this one but I believe it products hyaline like cartilage which is not same as the result of this product

A little info about me. I was diagnosed with chondromalacia patella in Feb. 2014. MRI scan revealed a signal  of 6 mm large x 4 mm high involving less than 50% of cartilage in the medial facet of the patella. Ever since, lateral side of patella is irritated. My PT said it's my body alignment that's out of whack so we are working on it. As per his instructions, I'm also doing 90 degree down squats without additional weight on daily basis which really help. Also when I bend down fully and lift myself up, I hear a crackling noise in the affected knee (sounds like crepitus) but my PT said it's not the cartilage but rather air, pressure, liquid and stuff like that. No one could tell me if I have a fissure, or just softening of my cartilage, not even my ortheopedist. He just said there's something there.

If you have alignment issues, look into the Egoscue method.  Did nothing for me, but I didn't think it was going to regrow cartilage for me.  I think it will help with straight alignment though.

According to clinical trials, the pattelar cartilage defects were excluded from them so i dont know if this product will address issues for chondromalacia patella sufferers. anyone has more info on it?
