New regenerative approaches to treat faecal incontinence

Professor Richard Day is the Principal Investigator of the AMELIE project. He discusses how their focus is treating women who have sustained injuries from childbirth that lead to incontinence. In many cases when the torn canal is surgically repaired, the muscle gets scarred causing it to lose function. Their main goal is to try to find a way to restore muscle functioning, resulting in restored bowel continence.

“The AMELIE project will use a new form of regenerative medicine”. Watch the video to learn more about how the researchers at AMELIE are developing this new strategy to treat people with faecal incontinence.
