Iranian Deputy Minister of Industries and Mines Seyyed Majid Hedayat says the country will soon unveil its domestically-produced artificial tendons and ligaments.
“The plan for the production of tendons and ligaments has had a 60-percent progress at Kish (Island) and will soon be inaugurated,” IRNA quoted Hedayat as saying during a recent visit to the country’s tissue-cloning company based on the Persian Gulf island.
He also said that the country has so far exported some of its bio-implant products worth one million dollars.
The official added that due to the quality of the Iranian products, many hospitals in the region and worldwide have utilized the Iranian bio-implants.
Iranian officials have on different occasions said that the export of the country’s ‘strategic’ bio-implant products would have significant financial turnover.
Bio-implants are prosthesis made of biosynthetic material.
