Cytori Gets FDA Approval For PureGraft System
- Posted on: Jan 19 2010
Cytori Therapeutics, one of the world leaders in stem cell technology, has recently received FDA approval for its PureGraft system. Now, this is not a stem cell harvesting machine, but instead is a device that makes fat grafting more efficient. According to released information, PureGraft helps to prepare fat for reinjection within about 15 minutes. It’s scheduled to be formally launched at the May meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Washington, D.C.
Does this mean actual stem cell transplantation for cosmetic purposes is close to reality in the U.S.?
I doubt it. ‘Sigh’
Thanks for reading.
