Evaluation of the changes of P1NP and CTX in synovial fluid and blood serum of dogs with experimental osteoarthritis

Abstract Osteoarthritis is a degenerative and reparative process occurring in synovial joints. In the present study, collagen type I C-telopeptide (CTX) and procollagen type I N-terminal propeptide (P1NP) were measured in blood serum and synovial fluid of four cross-breed dogs with experimental CCL rupture. These biomarkers were selected as bone turnover biomarkers. The markers were measured on days 0, 14, 28, 90, and 180 post surgery. Statistical analysis showed significant increase in P1NP in both serum and synovial fluid. The CTX showed a significant increase in serum and a non significant increase in synovial fluid at the end of study. The changes in bone turnover biomarkers can be diagnostic in osteoarthritis. As time passes, the changes become more evident. Since the changes were the same in both serum and synovial fluid, measurement of the markers in serum is preferred as it is easier.

ConclusionsFormer athletes had similar PCS and better MCS, compared to general-population norms. Former athletes with impaired PCS reported better MCS than population norms, highlighting the need to use an instrument that differentiates between physical and mental components of QOL in former sport participants. Factors associated with worse QOL that may explain between-study variation include involuntary retirement, collision/high contact sports, concussion, BMI  and osteoarthritis.PROSPEROCRD42018104319.

The objective of this study was to determine whether osteoarthritis had an impact on outcomes of prostate cancer including death, local recurrence and/or metastasis and to determine whether cartilage oligomeric matrix protein was involved. We performed a retrospective case-control study of patients with prostate cancer with and without the diagnosis of osteoarthritis and completed immunohistochemistry (IHC) analysis of prostate (n=20) and lymph node (n=7) surgical specimens. We evaluated death, local recurrence and metastatic disease by various IHC biomarkers including prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA), cartilage o...

The objective of this review is to summarize the molecular mechanisms of inflammation and oxidative stress activated by Cd at the bone level, particularly in osteoporosis, RA, and OA. Cadmium can increase bone resorption, affect the activity of osteoclasts and calcium (Ca) absorption, and impair kidney function, which favors the development of osteoporosis. In the case of RA, Cd interferes with the activity of antioxidant proteins, like superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT). It also promotes an inflammatory state, inducing the process of citrullination, which affects the proteins of immune response. On the other ha...

The United States is in an obesity epidemic. Obesity has multiple common comorbid conditions, including lower extremity arthritis. We sought to examine the course of treatment for a population with body mass index (BMI) ≥ 40 kg/m2 and osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip or knee. We investigated decision criteria that influenced arthroplasty surgeons to recommend non-operative management versus total joint arthroplasty (TJA). For those patients who ultimately received TJA, we compared outcomes in this population to tho se with BMI

Emerging evidence suggests that injury to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) typically initiates biological changes that contribute to the development of osteoarthritis (OA). The molecular biomarkers or mediators of these biological events remain unknown. The goal of this exploratory study was to identify novel synovial fluid biomarkers associated with early biological changes following ACL injury distinct from findings in end-stage OA.

Authors: West CR, Bedard NA, Duchman KR, Westermann RW, Callaghan JJ Abstract Background: Revision hip arthroscopy often serves as a measure for a failed primary hip arthroscopy procedure. The purpose of this study was to examine the rate, timing, and risk factors for revision hip arthroscopy using a large national database. Methods: The Humana administrative claims dataset was reviewed from 2007 through the second quarter of 2015 to identify patients undergoing hip arthroscopy using Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes and laterality modifiers. Patients with subsequent ipsilateral revision hip arthroscop...

Conclusion: Relatively few numbers of Medicare patients underwent hip arthroscopy during the time interval evaluated (0.3% when compared to THA utilization). 2.2% underwent a subsequent revision arthroscopy or THA with many occurring soon after the procedure and for the diagnosis of hip OA demonstrating the need to better define indications in this population. This study should provide baseline utilization and outcome trends for future studies.Level of Evidence: IV. PMID: 31413681 [PubMed - in process]
