Wnt Scientific is a pre-clinical stage biotechnology company that aims to harness the endogenous stem cells to regenerate the fibrocartilage to repair the osteoarthritic temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Our approach offers the promise of a minimally invasive, regenerative treatment for TMJ osteoarthritis that alleviates pain and restores function.
TMJ diseases afflict over 10 million Americans at an annual cost of ~$4 billion. Exploiting the regenerative capabilities of resident stem cells to repair TMJ tissues represents a minimally invasive stem cell-based treatment for TMJ disorders. We have identified TMJ fibrocartilage stem cells (FCSCs) and defined the signals regulating FCSCs’ fate. Sponsored by NIH small business program and private investors, Wnt Scientific and Columbia University have co-developed StemGEL, a breakthrough TMJ OA regenerative therapy that is able to alleviate joint pain, reduce inflammation and restore joint function.
