CYTOTRON ® & OsteoarthritisWhat is Osteo-arthritis?Osteo-arthritis (OA) is most common form of arthritis affecting mostly the Knees.
How common is Osteo-arthritis? Osteo-arthritis is most affecting one out of eight people between the ages of 18 and 79. According to Arthritis Foundation, approximately 16 million Americans suffer from Osteo-arthritis, three times as many women as men. Osteo-arthritis has increased recently due to sedentary lifestyle as people walking less, are more over-weight, eat fast food, junk food etc and are not keeping the muscles toned by doing quality exercises. so they are bound to suffer from knee disorders which is simply gravity and weight leading to wearing-out of cartilages. Also more Osteo-arthritis is seen due to increase in awareness and life expectancy, and increase in treatment modalities.

New non-surgical Osteo-arthritis treatment Now knee joint cartilage can be regenerated and repaired by QMR based Tissue Engineering with CYTOTRON ® Therapy. QMR regenerates degenerated cartilage and relieves chronic pain and disability of Knee non-invasively with multi-frequency rotating quantum electromagnetic resonating beams. Many knees can be saved from knee replacement surgery.

What is the mechanism of Quantum Magnetic Resonance (QMR) Tissue Engineering (Regeneration and Degeneration)? QMR produces high power multi frequency rotating quantum electromagnetic resonating beams that can be 'focused ' on the site required to be treated.

What is the Principle of QMR in Tissue Regeneration and Degeneration? Rotational Field Quantum Magnetic Resonance (RFQMR) technology utilized highly complex quantum electromagnetic beams in the sub-radio and near-radio frequency spectrum. The beams are precisely controlled and focused onto tissues to alter the proton spin inside and outside the cells therein generating streaming voltage potentials. This alters cell membrane potential and "Jams" the "Command and Control" of the target tissue cells stimulating cartilage growth.

How does QMR work in Tissue Regeneration of the cartilage? Like other tissues, bone and cartilage are constantly being built up and broken down by a variety of metabolic and physical influences. The major stimulus for bone and cartilage formation is a signal generated when these structures are subjected to tension or compression. This explains why bone atrophies in the absence of any significant pressure, such as weightlessness during space travel or immobilization in a cast. The transmission of this signal is also impaired following joint injury due to trauma or diseases such as Osteo-arthritis.
In other words, when you take a step, putting weight on the joint, the cartilage is compressed, the fluid gets displaced, and it carries with it mobile ions, the sodium ions, leaving behind the negatively charged proteoglycan carboxyl and sulfate ions. This generates an electric potential because you have "neutralized" negative charges. This is called a streaming potential.
QMR is designed to characterize and reproduce the required signal that initiates these regenerative activities even though they are at rest). by the induction of a spin in the hydrogen atoms thus creating a streaming potential in the extra cellular matrix (ECM) when bone or cartilage are placed under a load.

How is QMR therapy evaluated and what are the expected results?
- Almost all patients show improvements
- Most patients have no pain by 4th exposure.
- Almost all patients can walk for 1 to 5 km
- 40% can squat down on the floor
- Upon 30 days follow up 95% patients are almost normalized, can climb stairs
- X-rays / MRI shows 0.1 to 0.35 mm growth in cartilage during 180 days follow-up.
- Dynamometry shows increased joint capacity from less than 5 kg before exposure to 45 kg during 180 days follow-up.
- Range of Motion, Extension, Flexion, Joint Stability and Alignment improve significantly when evaluated using knee society scoring.

Is the treatment painful? No, the treatment is absolutely painless. Patients can even listen to music, see television or read during the treatment.

How is the CYTOTRON® treatment applied? The affected joint (knee) is placed inside QMR machine.
The desired exposure characteristics (like the cartilage to bone gap, skin to cartilage distance, Name, age, gender, height and weight etc.,) are fed into the computer. The computer then computes various wave front and spin frequencies, pulse amplitudes, field strength etc.
There after the operator precisely focuses the beams on the required site. The treatment is given usually for 30 minutes daily for a period of 21 days.
The patients are evaluated by x-rays, Ultra-sound scans, etc in the beginning of the treatment, after 21 days and once again after 90 days, to understand the sustained effect. The Subjects do not feel any pain or discomfort during the treatment, all parameters are periodically measured on the body surface.
