The FDA cleared an investigational new medication application for NVD-003, a stem cell therapy for treatment of youngsters with inborn pseudarthrosis of the tibia, as per the specialist’s producer.
NVD-003 (Novadip Biosciences) is a second-age autologous cell therapy got from fat stem cells and comes as a pliable clay that is embedded by the treating doctor. The investigational therapy utilizes Novadip’s exclusive tissue recovery stage to culture a patient’s fat stem cells and produce an osteogenic item that advances bone arrangement.
The IND leeway will permit Novadip to start a first-in-human, pilot investigation of NVD-003.
