GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE MKT: AMPE) today announced preliminary biochemical analysis of samples of synovial fluid drawn from the index knee (treated knee) of a subset of patients who participated in the SPRING study. This synovial analysis, suggested by the FDA, tests the change in expression of signaling and structural proteins that arise from the treatment of the knee with either Ampion(TM) or the saline vehicle...

Osteoarthritis is a painful, debilitating illness affecting more than 27 million people in the US Think new discoveries are the bee's knees? This one is even better -- this research out of Rhode Island Hospital is the mice's knees. Researchers have found that adding lubricin, a protein that our bodies naturally produce, to the fluid in our joints may reduce the risk of or even prevent osteoarthritis (OA). The findings, in a paper by Gregory D. Jay, M.D., Ph.D., of the department of...

In their search for new, better ways to diagnose periprosthetic joint infection, Rothman Institute at Jefferson researchers have discovered that measurement of C-reactive protein in the synovial fluid is extremely accurate, while measuring a patients´ serum white blood cell count (WBC) and the percentage of neutrophils (PMN%), the conventional method for diagnosis, has a minimal role in the determination of PJI. The synovial fluid is the viscous liquid that lubricates the joints and...

Joint injury can result in irreversible damage of cartilage which, despite treatment and surgery, often eventually leads to osteoarthritis (OA) in later life. New research published in BioMed Central's open access journal Arthritis Research & Therapy demonstrates that short term treatment of damaged cartilage with glucocorticoids can reduce long term degenerative changes and may provide hope for prevention of OA after injury. A normal joint is covered by a layer of cartilage containing...

Patients with persistent arthritis require more intensive antibiotic and DMARD therapy New research shows that polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for Borrelia burgdorferi DNA"”the spirochetal bacteria transmitted by deer ticks"”in joint fluid may confirm the diagnosis of Lyme arthritis, but is not a reliable indicator for active joint infection in patients whose arthritis persists after antibiotic therapy. Findings of this study are published in Arthritis & Rheumatism, a...

TAU researchers apply an industrial monitoring technique to orthopedic diagnoses Ferrography, a practice used by the American and Israeli air forces to monitor the condition of machinery, extracts tiny iron particles from lubricants such as oil and grease to analyze wear in machines. Determining whether a system requires preventative maintenance can be the key to preventing catastrophic failure. Now Tel Aviv University scientists are exploring a modification of this technique for human...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Tired of the pain, pills and joint swelling? A team of researchers in North Carolina discovered that lubricin, a synovial fluid glycoprotein, may treat or prevent joint disease. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, the degenerative joint disease.  It mostly affects cartilage, the slippery tissue that covers the ends of bones where they meet to form a joint, and allows bones to glide over one another with limited friction and wear. ...

Research presented today at AVS Meeting in Albuquerque has implications for osteoarthritis A team of researchers in North Carolina has discovered that lubricin, a synovial fluid glycoprotein, reduces wear to bone cartilage. This result, which has implications for the treatment of sufferers of osteoarthritis, will be presented today at the AVS 57th International Symposium & Exhibition, taking place this week at the Albuquerque Convention Center in New Mexico. Osteoarthritis is the most...

mallemaroking
  • Nautical, the visiting and carousing of sailors in the Greenland ships.
This word is apparently from a confusion of two similar Dutch words: 'mallemerok,' a foolish woman, and 'mallemok,' a name for some persons among the crew of a whaling vessel.
