As medical technology advances, so does the need for clear patient
education on new products and innovations. AlloSource?, one of the largest nonprofit cellular and tissue providers in the country, offering more than 200 types of precise cellular, cartilage, bone, skin and soft-tissue allografts to advance patient healing, recently shared a 3D animation about the science behind its cellular bone allograft, AlloStem?.
AlloStem is partially demineralized allograft bone combined with adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells and AlloSource?s 3D animation tells the visual story of how this allograft provides the three key properties necessary for bone formation.
- Osteoconductive – Partially demineralized allograft bone, the foundation for the AlloStem tissue, provides a natural scaffold for new bone formation.
- Osteoinductive – Naturally occurring growth factors present in allograft bone have been shown to encourage osteogenic activity.
- Osteogenic – AlloStem contains adult mesenchymal stem cells that naturally adhere to the bone substrate and may contribute to the formation of new bone.
