AMELIE (Anchored Muscle cELls for IncontinencE) Research project.

Who is it for?

What does it involve?

Can cell therapy restore muscle function?

Faecal incontinence is a serious public health problem, affecting over 67 million people in Europe. AMELIE is primarily concerned with the effect of injury to the anal sphincter by childbirth, surgery or trauma. Many such patients are unsuitable for current surgical options. Our research aims to provide a new form of regenerative treatment, as explained in this short video.
