Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized Comparison of NeoCart to Microfracture for the Repair of Articular Cartilage Injuries in the Knee

Further study details as provided by Histogenics Corporation:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The change of physical functioning and pain as assessed by patient reported outcome measures (Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS), International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC) score) [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Repair cartilage structure as measured by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 245
Study Start Date: May 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: NeoCart
Autologous cartilagenous tissue implant
Biological: NeoCart
implantation of an cartilagenous tissue implant derived from the patients own cells.
Active Comparator: Microfracture
surgical intervention
Procedure: Microfracture
holes are created in bone at the base of the defect bed to encourage growth of tissue within the defect bed.
