What’s involved in nSTRIDE APS?

The treatment is designed to be a single injection therapy carried out in the out-patient clinic.

A small amount of your blood is taken, just like a simple blood test. This is processed to concentrate your white blood cells, platelets, and plasma proteins into a small volume of plasma.

It uses your own bodies natural healing cells. It is not a synthetic therapy.

The prepared nSTRIDE APS (approx 2-3 mls) is injected directly into your knee joint cavity.

The injection gives you:

  • Anti-inflammatory effects
  • Joint pain reduction
  • Promotion of cartilage health
  • Improvement of joint function

The science behind nSTRIDE APS

In an osteoarthritic knee, inflammatory cytokines (“bad” proteins) outnumber anti-inflammatory cytokines (“good” proteins) causing an imbalance resulting in knee pain and a breakdown of your joint surface cartilage.

The “bad” proteins attack your cartilage and if stopped simultaneously can decrease pain and slow down cartilage breakdown.

The prepared nSTRIDE APS introduces high levels of “good” proteins that is designed to overwhelm and block the “bad” proteins.

These “good” proteins may help stimulate a biologic cascade which has been shown to block cartilage destruction in osteoarthritis. The pain in the joint may be reduced, and the joint function may be improved. The ongoing destruction of cartilage may also be slowed.

Laboratory, animal and human studies have shown that nSTRIDE APS has decreased pain and slowed cartilage degeneration, unlike traditional therapies.
