Latest Cartilage Stories
A natural tissue graft can spur regeneration of cartilage and improve symptoms in patients who have cartilage damage in their knee.
UK scientists have found a naturally occurring molecule in the body which may have important consequences for treating osteoarthritis.
Bioengineers are interested in finding innovative ways to grow new cartilage from a patient’s own stem cells, and, thanks to a new study from the University of Pennsylvania, such a treatment is a step closer to reality.
Scientists at Johns Hopkins have turned their view of osteoarthritis (OA) inside out.
Researchers at Micro Orthopaedics, Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University, led by Dr. Ai-xi Yu, have suggested that articular cartilage defects can be repaired by a novel thermo-sensitive injectable hydrogel engineered with gene modified bone marrow mesenchymal stromal cells (BMSCs).
To better understand the onset and progression of osteoarthritis, Nadeen Chahine, PhD, and collaborators at other institutions looked at cells from articular cartilage using atomic force microscopy
A new paper published in the Biophysical Journal explains why cartilage may be more susceptible to damage from high impact physical activities such as jumping or running during the early stages of osteoarthritis. The results could lead to early diagnostic tests or new designs for replacement cartilage.
A team of bioengineers and physicians have developed a way to create a real-live human ear with a 3D printer.
