Context: Molecules that are released into biological fluids during matrix metabolism of articular cartilage, subchondral bone, and synovial tissue could serve as biochemical markers of the process of osteoarthritis (OA). Unfortunately, actual breakthroughs in the biochemical OA marker field are limited so far. Objective: By reviewing the status...

Background: There is growing interest in soluble biomarkers that could be used on the group level for screening purposes in small proof of principle studies during early drug development. We investigated early changes in serum levels of several candidate biomarkers involved in cartilage and bone metabolism following the initiation of adalimumab...

Similar to native cardiovascular tissues, the mechanical properties of engineered cardiovascular constructs depend on the composition and quality of the extracellular matrix, which is a net result of matrix remodeling processes within the tissue. To improve tissue remodeling, and hence tissue mechanical properties, various mechanical...

Study Design. Caprine lumbar intervertebral discs (IVD) were collected from previous studies and categorized as normal, mildly, or severely degenerated. The biochemical composition and the RNA profiles present in both the nucleus pulposus (NP) and the anulus fibrosus (AF) were analyzed. Objective. To determine the molecular changes occurring in...

Transforming growth factor beta (TGFbeta) is often used in cartilage tissue engineering to increase matrix formation by cells with various phenotypes. However, adverse effects of TGFbeta, such as extensive cross-linking in cultured fibroblasts, have also been reported. Our goal was to study effects of TGFbeta on collagen cross-linking and...

Degenerative disc disease (DDD) is a major cause of chronic low back pain. For mild/intermediate DDD, regeneration by injecting adipose stem cells (ASCs) into the nucleus pulposus (NP) may be considered. The goal of this study is to investigate whether NP cells can direct ASCs towards the NP phenotype. Interactions between NP cells and ASCs were...

Background: Understanding biochemical and structural changes of the extracellular matrix in Achilles tendinosis might be important for developing mechanism-based therapies. Hypothesis: In Achilles tendinosis, changes occur in biochemical composition and collagen turnover rate. Study Design: Descriptive laboratory study. Methods: From 10 patients...

Healthy bone is a rigid yet living tissue that undergoes continuous remodeling. Osteoclasts resorb bone in the remodeling cycle. They secrete H+-ions and proteinases to dissolve bone mineral and degrade organic bone matrix, respectively. One of the main collagenolytic proteinase in osteoclasts is cathepsin K, a member of papain family cysteine...

The major pathological processes of systemic scleroderma (SSc) comprise inflammation and microvascular damage in the early or acute progressive stage as well as tissue fibrosis and hypoxia in the chronic end stage. Fibrosis seems to be a general phenomenon characterized by an increase of hydroxylysine aldehyde derived collagen cross-links which...

Bruck syndrome (BS) is a recessively-inherited phenotypic disorder featuring the unusual combination of skeletal changes resembling osteogenesis imperfects (OI) with congenital contractures of the large joints. Clinical heterogeneity is apparent in cases reported thus far. While the genes coding for collagen 1 chains are unaffected in BS, there...
