Teltow / Leipzig, 21 May 2021 - CO.DON AG (ISIN: DE000A1K0227) received today the positive vote of the CHMP (Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use) of the EMA (European Medicines Agency) on the approval of the application for the indication extension of the EU-wide approved medicinal product for human use "Spherox - Spheroids from human autologous matrix-associated chondrocytes" for the use in adolescents.
The CHMP's assessment is the basis for the European Commission's decision on the EU-wide authorisation of the indication extension. In the past, the European Commission followed the recommendations of the CHMP in the vast majority of applications.
With the expanded indication for the EU, the treatment of symptomatic articular cartilage defects of ICRS Grade III or IV of the femoral condyle and the patella of the knee with defect sizes of up to 10 cm^2 is now also possible in adolescents with closed growth plates in addition to adult patients.
