Not surprisingly, the Biological Association focused more on autologous therapies, cell culturing and the next generation of biologics, while the AOSSM meeting explored the current use and growing trends of traditional orthobiologics in orthopedic applications. This article, which is downloadable here, is part one in a two-part series highlighting key takeaways from the Biologic Association meeting, including:
