Newport Beach, CA – BioCell Technology LLC is pleased to announce the launch of a groundbreaking, double blind, placebo-controlled clinical study on patented BioCell Collagen II™ (hydrolyzed chicken sternal collagen type II). Results of the US based clinical study are expected in the fall of 2002.
The study’s objective is to assess the influence of BioCell Collagen II™ versus placebo in an osteoarthritis population. The outcomes and biomarkers targeted include, Pain, Mobility and Quality of Life.
BioCell Collagen II is derived from the sternums of young chickens and is then hydrolyzed for maximum absorption. It is uniquely processed to contain a high concentration of Collagen Type II, the most abundant structural protein found in articular (joint) cartilage. In addition BioCell Collagen II™ is naturally rich in Glycosaminoglycans, Chondroitin Sulfate (min. 20%), Glucosamine Sulfate, Hyaluronic Acid (min. 10%), and a newly discovered antioxidant proteoglycan called Cartilage Matrix Glycoprotein (CMGP). Collectively, the components found in BioCell Collagen II™ provide the structural support of healthy joints by promoting new cartilage synthesis and by reducing oxidative damage to the joints. BioCell Collagen II™ is completely water-soluble and is specially processed to ensure maximum bioavailability. BioCell Collagen II™ has been sold in the health supplement market for the past four years. Published clinical trials by physicians and medical journals report favorable scientific evidence that only Collagen Type II from Chicken Sternum Cartilage is safe and effective. Hydrolyzed Chicken Collagen Type II is the next generation in the treatment of arthritis and joint disease.
Founded in 1997, BioCell Technology pioneered the applications of Chicken Collagen Type II as a nutritional supplement and is the exclusive supplier of BioCell Collagen II™, the only 100% pure Chicken Sternum derived Collagen Type II ingredient.
