"Catholics who participate in the challenge and who make donations to this research must also demand of fund-raisers and organizers an assurance that none of the donations made will be applied to researches that are ethically reproved" he added
"Due to the recent progress in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, a cartilage cell treatment was developed to completely regenerate cartilage tissue by using human cells (KR10-2010-0084142A). A conventional cartilage cell treatment is an autologous cartilage cell treatment, wherein a portion of cartilage tissue of a patient is taken to culture the tissue in vitro in bulk for about 4 weeks. First, a diseased area is cleaned and then periosteum tissue is extracted from a tibia of the patient, then the periosteum tissue is disposed and sealed on a cartilage area, and then cells cultured in a damaged cartilage area are transplanted in a suspended state. This is an autologous cartilage cell treatment wherein fibrin glue is applied to the area sealed to prevent the leakage of cells."
