nFat, or nano Fat, represents a breakthrough in regenerative medicine, offering a potent and targeted approach to treating osteoarthritis and other conditions. At London Cartilage Clinic, our nFat therapy uses finely processed adipose tissue, broken down into nano-scale particles to maximise surface area and regenerative potential.

The Science of nFat Therapy

Our nFat therapy involves enzymatic digestion of adipose tissue from the abdomen or inner thighs, resulting in a product rich in various cell types, including mesenchymal stem cells and pericytes. This composition is key to nFat’s pro-regenerative and anti-inflammatory activities, making it a promising option for osteoarthritis treatment and other conditions​​.

Advantages of nFat in Regenerative Medicine

nFat’s smaller cell size offers a more aggressive and impactful treatment option, particularly suitable for conditions requiring intensive cellular interaction. However, due to its refined nature and shorter half-life, nFat is typically used in fresh preparations, ensuring maximum efficacy upon application​​.

Clinical Applications of nFat

nFat therapy has shown promising results in alleviating joint pain, improving functional outcomes, and promoting articular cartilage repair, particularly in osteoarthritis patients. Its unique properties make it an ideal choice for patients seeking advanced, targeted regenerative therapies​​.

Distinguishing nFat from mFat

Understanding the differences between nFat and mFat is crucial for patients considering regenerative therapy options:

  1. Processing and Size: nFat is distinguished by its nano-scale processing of adipose tissue. Unlike mFat, which is micro-fragmented, nFat is broken down into even smaller particles, increasing the surface area for cellular interaction and enhancing its regenerative potential.
  2. Regenerative Potency: Due to its finer structure, nFat provides a more potent regenerative effect compared to mFat. The smaller size of nFat allows for a more aggressive interaction with damaged tissues, making it particularly effective for intensive regenerative needs.
  3. Half-life and Freshness of Application: nFat has a shorter half-life than mFat, requiring its use in fresh preparations. This characteristic makes nFat more suitable for immediate and targeted applications, whereas mFat offers a longer-lasting effect.
  4. Clinical Applications: While both nFat and mFat are used in regenerative medicine, nFat’s enhanced potency makes it ideal for treating conditions like osteoarthritis, where a more aggressive and targeted approach is beneficial. In contrast, mFat may be used in a broader range of regenerative treatments due to its longer duration of efficacy.

Frequently Asked Questions

While all these therapies utilise micro-fragmented adipose tissue, nFat is processed into even smaller pieces, providing a greater surface area for interaction and a more potent therapeutic effect, albeit with a shorter duration of efficacy.

nFat is primarily used in the treatment of osteoarthritis, offering relief from joint pain, aiding in cartilage repair, and improving overall joint function.

Due to its fine structure, nFat has a shorter half-life compared to other fat therapies, and is typically used in fresh preparations for optimal effectiveness.
