Ukrainian edition of Forbes Reports on ilaya’s Work With Wounded Soldiers
The Ukrainian edition of Forbes magazine reported on ilaya’s bone regeneration work with soldiers wounded in the war in southeast Ukraine. Since September 2014, the clinic has assisted more than 80 soldiers, re-growing bone over gaps as wide as 15 cm and allowing them to avoid amputations.
ilaya’s scientists have been studying cellular technologies for the past 15 years, benefitting from a more relaxed regulatory regime than in Western Europe and North America. The work with combat veterans has been sponsored by People’s Project, an organization funded by IT investor David Arahamiya.
ilaya estimates that its operations on soldiers for whom the only other option was amputation have saved the Ukrainian government about 400 million hryvnias (about $15 million) in social payments and the costs of prosthetics.
