Researchers at Duke have developed a 3-dimensional woven scaffolding material and process that will serve as a base to join with3-5 scaffoling weaving machine stem cells to form natural cartilage to replace your existing knee cartilage.

This is great, and amazing, as it is a fully therapeutic, and uses stem cells (see they're awesome) to grow the actual cartilage on the scaffolding.

What this means is, in 3 to 4 years this process should be ready for it's first human testing.
