ConclusionHere we show that in twelve clinical cases, the cartilage was observed successfully regenerating and covering the defect region in knees after the intra-articular injection with adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), and the treatment highly improves the symptoms of osteoarthritis. Basically, the adipose-derived MSCs from the patients are cultured and expanded to a specific amount with the optimized stem cell culture medium, the HELENE MEDIUM. After that, the cultured MSCs are directly injected into the injured knee joints of patients. The cartilage has gradually regenerated and been monitored by MRI phot...

Authors: Aghaloo T, Pi-Anfruns J, Moshaverinia A, Sim D, Grogan T, Hadaya D Abstract Since their development, dental implants have become one of the most common procedures to rehabilitate patients with single missing teeth or fully edentulous jaws. As implants become more mainstream, determining the factors that affect osseointegration is extremely important. Medical risk factors identified to negatively affect osseointegration include diabetes and osteoporosis. However, other systemic conditions and medications that interfere with wound healing have not been as widely investigated. The aim of this systematic revie...

We examined the incidence rate and risk factors of osteoporotic vertebral fracture in RA patients with new-onset CVD (RA-CVD) and evaluated the effects of medications on such fracture risk.MethodsA retrospective study was conducted using a nationwide database from 2000 to 2010: 1267 RA-CVD and 1267 non-CVD patients were enrolled from 30,507 patients with newly diagnosed RA. The main outcome was the development of osteoporotic vertebral fracture. After being adjusted for age, gender, and comorbidities, the Cox proportional hazard model was used to identify independent factors contributing to osteoporotic vertebral fracture....

T cell modulation in the clinical background of autoimmune diseases or allogeneic cell and organ transplantations with concurrent preservation of their natural immunological functions (e.g. pathogen defense) is the major obstacle in immunology. An anti human CD4 antibody (MAX.16H5) was applied intravenously in clinical trials for the treatment of autoimmune diseases (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis) and acute late-onset rejection after transplantation of a renal allograft. The response rates were remarkable and no critical allergic problems or side effects were obtained. During the treatment of autoimmune diseases with the murin...

The objective of this study was designed to investigate the ontogeny of SM and to evaluate the role of SM from different origins in arthritis. SM was isolated from Cxcr1-EGFP mice and C57BL/6 mice by a strigent sorting strategy. Flow cytometry, immunostaining and bone marrow chimera model were used to identify different origins of SM. The comparison of cellular features of SM from different origins were evaluated by the total cell number, in situ proliferation, phagocytosis and expressions of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory genes. In addition, collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) mice and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patie...
