А NEARMEDIC GROUP COMPANY INVENTION IN CELLULAR TECHNOLOGIES RECEIVES A EUROPEAN PATENT

JoinTechCell LLC, a company of the Nearmedic Group, has recently received the second international patent for the ESVIEF kit for isolating the stromal-vascular fraction from adipose tissue. The granting of the patent was preceded by an examination, successfully passed by the company. Earlier, the company had received a registration certificate for the use of ESVIEF in Russia and a patent in the Republic of Korea.

ESVIEF is a single-use sterile kit that allows one to isolate the stromal-vascular fraction from adipose tissue (lipoaspirate) by a step-by-step washing and treatment with an enzyme. The device provides for easy and convenient obtaining of necessary cells without losing their viability, and for their immediate use thereafter.

The final product, stromal-vascular fraction (SVF), is used mainly for the treatment of the musculoskeletal system diseases. The therapy involves obtaining stem cells from the patient’s adipose tissue and their subsequent introduction into the area of the pathological process, for example, in the joint, injured or affected by arthrosis. The procedure is highly effective and safe. SVF injections stimulate the processes of tissue regeneration, help to normalize immune processes and eliminate inflammation. In addition, SVF is now increasingly used for the treatment and correction of tissue defects (cartilage, ligaments, soft tissues) in plastic surgery, reconstructive medicine, urology, coloproctology.

«The technology of treatment with stromal-vascular fraction has long been used in European countries: Germany, France and Poland. The medical community is well familiar with this cellular technology. Currently, clinical studies are being conducted, which in the future will allow it to be used in new areas. The task of our company was to make the most effective, safe and standardized method of controlled isolation of SVF. With our device, the procedure becomes easier, does not require bulky equipment, and takes no more than 2 hours, » says Maria Petkova, Director of the Nearmedic Group Project Office and General Director of JoinTechCell LLC. «For any new medical device, the European market is one of the priorities, which is why the Nearmedic Group has decided to patent its developments in the EU. We regard passing all the examinations and obtaining the patent as a recognition of the high quality and uniqueness of our product,» she added.
