ConclusionsIPFP T2FS-hyperintense regions are associated with higher perfusion in knee OA patients in contrast to identically appearing regions in PFP patients and controls, pointing towards an inflammatory pathogenesis in OA only.Key Points•Morphologically identical appearing T2FS-hyperintense infrapatellar fat pad regions show different perfusion in healthy subjects, subjects with patellofemoral pain, and subjects with knee osteoarthritis.•Elevated DCE-MRI perfusion parameters within T2FS-hyperintense infrapatellar fat pad regions in patients with osteoarthritis suggest an inflammatory pathogenesis in osteoarth...

AbstractPurposeThe autologous collagen-induced chondrogenesis technique is described, and the results of a 6-year follow-up clinical study using this technique are presented.Methods30 patients with International Cartilage Repair Society (ICRS) Grade III/IVa symptomatic chondral defects of the knee treated with enhanced microdrilling using atelocollagen were prospectively examined in this clinical series. The median age of the patients was 39.0  years (range 19–61 years). Patients were followed up to 72 months. Clinical evaluation was performed using functional knee scores and radiologically. Both quant...

Abstract Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience in many diseases and is often caused by intense or damaging stimuli. Pain negatively affects the quality of life and increases high health expenditures. Drugs with analgesic properties are commonly used to relieve pain, but these Western medications could be overwhelmed by side effects including tolerance and addiction. Herbal medicines may provide alternative measures for pain management. In this review paper, after introduction of Chinese medicine theory and treatment modality, emphasis is placed on the application of Chinese herbs and herbal formul...

Authors: Chen Y, Jiang W, Yong H, He M, Yang Y, Deng Z, Li Y Abstract Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common cause of disability in worldwide population, which is characterized by cartilage breakdown, synovial fibrosis, osteophyte formation and pain. Synovial inflammation is usually found in both early and late stages in most of the OA patients. Macrophages, the major component of the mononuclear phagocyte system, play a critical role in OA pathogenesis through the induction of inflammatory mediators, growth factors and proteinases. So, drugs that can target macrophages and macrophage-associated inflammatory pathwa...
