Chondritis, or inflammation of the cartilage, may occur in the outer ear and lead to otitis media. The group around Ken ITO at Teikyo University has launched a clinical study to reconstruct resected parts of the ear with implanted regenerated cartilage, developed by Fuji Software. Doctor-led clinical trials are scheduled for 2020.
