in that
it's actually idom that means " because / for the reason that "

so another way to say today's sentence would be:
Orthokine therapy is revolutionary for the reason that it actually halts the progression of osteoarthritis.

雖然 in that 代表 because 之意,但不是所有情況都可用 in that 來取代 because

in that 是從狹隘的方面或幾方面來說明原因或理由, 只能放在句子中間。

2. The opening of the tunnel was significant in that it cut down commuters' driving time by at least an hour.

相對的," 只有 " 是 as little as
