What is ICRS?

In the medical sector, ICRS stands for International Cartilage Repair Society. ICRS is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and disseminating research, knowledge, and training in the field of joint cartilage repair and regeneration. The society brings together experts from various fields, such as orthopedics, cell biology, biotechnology and sports medicine, to develop interdisciplinary approaches to improve cartilage repair techniques and to promote an understanding of the importance of healthy cartilage tissue.

The Presentation: Acellular Collagen Injectable Hydrogel (Chondrofiller Liquid®)

The presentation “Acellular Collagen Injectable Hydrogel (Chondrofiller Liquid®)” was presented by Dr. Olaf Beck. He is one of the leading experts in the field of regenerative joint orthopedics and is in demand worldwide as an expert. In this presentation, he presented a promising new approach for treating cartilage damage in joints, particularly in degenerative joint diseases such as osteoarthritis. Chondrofiller Liquid® is a collagen-based acellular injectable hydrogel designed to regenerate cartilage in damaged joints, reducing pain and restoring joint function.

The presentation began with an introduction to the challenges of cartilage repair and the importance of an effective approach to cartilage regeneration to reduce joint pain and improve patients' quality of life. Dr. Beck explained the biology of cartilage, its functions in the joint and the difficulties in healing cartilage damage due to its avascular nature.

In the next section, Dr. Beck presented the development work and scientific basis behind Chondrofiller Liquid®, including its composition and the advantages of acellular collagen hydrogels over conventional cartilage repair techniques. He showed how Chondrofiller Liquid® imitated the extracellular matrix and thus created a suitable environment for cell migration and proliferation. These properties enabled Chondrofiller Liquid® to promote the natural healing process by helping to integrate new cartilage tissue into the damaged area.

The presentation continued with an overview of preclinical studies and clinical applications of Chondrofiller Liquid®, which investigated the effectiveness and safety of the hydrogel in treating cartilage damage. The results of these studies showed significant improvement in joint function, pain relief, and structural regeneration of cartilage in the treated joints.

Finally, the future of Chondrofiller Liquid® and its potential applications in various clinical scenarios was discussed, including the combination with other regenerative therapy approaches to achieve synergistic effects and further improve treatment success in patients with cartilage damage. Dr. Beck emphasized the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration and continuous research to further develop Chondrofiller Liquid® and other innovative therapeutic approaches in cartilage regeneration and to deepen the understanding of cartilage biology and repair.


ICRS benefited from the discussion about Chondrofiller Liquid® as it promoted scientific collaboration and knowledge of regenerative therapeutic approaches in cartilage repair. Chondrofiller is a collagen-based acellular, injectable hydrogel that supports the healing process and promotes the integration of new cartilage tissue.

The advantages of Chondrofiller Liquid® over traditional techniques were highlighted, including mimicking the extracellular matrix and creating an environment for cell migration and proliferation. Patients could benefit from improved joint function, pain relief, and structural regeneration of cartilage.

Through such lectures, the ICRS is supported in deepening its understanding of cartilage biology and repair and promoting new therapeutic options for patients with joint damage.
