Orthopedic Clinical Research and Industrial Development Cooperation

Orthopedic Clinical Research and Industrial Development Cooperation

The FEMH Orthopedics Center has cooperated with local industries to develop novel medical products, including bone plate and screw, artificial joint, bone

Request for Collaboration
Overview
The Team of Orthopedic Regeneration and Reconstruction Research (TORCH) is composed of attending physicians and clinical research team in Orthopedics Center. We research on improvement and breakthrough over existing treatments by using tissue engineering method. Also, we conduct various clinical researches on treatments of bone fractures and osteoarthritis.
 
Our research topics mainly focus on tissue engineering, stem cells, and bone and cartilage regeneration. The clinical researches include “Cartilage repair strategies with autologous stem cells, scaffold from blood components and cartilage matrix: tissue culture, mechanism investigation, and animal test”, and “Applying mesenchymal stem cells and acellular cartilage matrix for osteoarthritis cartilage regeneration by using genetic engineering and tissue engineering methods”. We also cover clinical case discussion of internal fixation of fracture, pathological fractures, bone fracture-related complications, sport injury, and minimally invasive surgery.
Features
The research team has cooperated with many universities and industries to develop novel biomedical materials and new medical technologies. The human clinical trials are mainly founded and supervised by the Ministry of Science and Technology (Taiwan) and the Far Eastern Memorial Hospital to ensure the safety and efficacy of the products. Currently, the cooperation partners include National Taiwan University, National Taipei University of Technology, National Yang-Ming University, Yuan Ze University, Oriental Institute of Technology, and local industries such as Far Eastern New Century Corporation, EMO Biomedicine Corporation, and A Plus Biotechnology Corporation. Besides developing new products for clinical use, we have submitted patent applications and technique transfers as well. In 2013, the bone graft product, which was developed by FEMH research team and the Far Eastern New Century Corporation, received the Taipei International Invention Palladium Award. In addition, the researches about “A Method Using Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cell and Platelet Glue” and “A Novel Angiogenic Composite as Injectable Bone Cement for Femoral Head Osteonecrosis” won the National Innovation Award in 2008 and 2011, respectively.
