Confirmatory Study of NeoCart in Knee Cartilage Repair
A Randomized Comparison of NeoCart to Microfracture for the Repair of Articular Cartilage Injuries in the Knee

This confirmatory study is a prospective randomized trial comparing the efficacy and safety of an autologous chondrocyte tissue implant (NeoCart) to the surgical intervention microfracture in the treatment of cartilage defects in the knee.

Phase 3
Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Articular Cartilage Defects in the Knee Joint
  • Biological: NeoCart
    implantation of an cartilagenous tissue implant derived from the patients own cells.
  • Procedure: Microfracture
    holes are created in bone at the base of the defect bed to encourage growth of tissue within the defect bed.
  • Experimental: NeoCart
    Autologous cartilagenous tissue implant
    Intervention: Biological: NeoCart
  • Active Comparator: Microfracture
    surgical intervention
    Intervention: Procedure: Microfracture
