Think new discoveries are the bee's knees? This one is even better...
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.
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 shows that polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for Borrelia burgdorferi DNAâ€”the spirochetal bacteria transmitted by deer ticksâ€”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.
TAU researchers apply an industrial monitoring technique to orthopedic diagnoses.
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.
