Stem Cells and Tibial Fractures

2014-08-26 22:32:19 | BioPortfolio


The aim of this trial is to determine the safety and tolerability of expanded autologous progeny of an adult CD34+ (haemopoietic) stem cell subset when infused directly into the tibial artery of patients with recent tibial fracture. The trial will also seek to determine clinical improvement or deterioration by measurement of clinical parameters such as, length of time to union of the fracture, changes in bone mineral density, improvements in pain scores (VAS), functional ability (TUGT) and IPAQ scores.

Autologous Implantation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells for the Treatment of Distal Tibial Fractures

Mesenchymal stem cells are found in bone marrow, and have the ability to differentiate into different tissue types. The primary objective of the study is to examine the safety of using suc...

Allogeneic Mesenchymal Stem Cell Transplantation in Tibial Closed Diaphyseal Fractures

This study is a case-control prospective, clinal trial to assess the safety and efficacy of the allogeneic adipose derived mesenchymal stem cell transplantation on the healing of recent ti...

Trial to Evaluate UltraSound in the Treatment of Tibial Fractures

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of low-intensity, pulsed ultrasound on tibial fractures treated with intramedullary nailing.

Potential Role of Notch Signalling in CD34+ Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia Cells: Cross-Talk between Notch and BCR-ABL.

Notch signalling is critical for haemopoietic stem cell (HSC) self-renewal and survival. The role of Notch signalling has been reported recently in chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) - a stem cell diseas...

One-Stage External Fixation Using a Locking Plate: Experience in 116 Tibial Fractures.

The authors report the results of 1-stage external fixation using a locking plate in 116 tibial fractures (85 closed and 31 open). The patients were followed for an average of 22 months. The mean dura...

Characterization of DLK1(PREF1)(+)/CD34(+) cells in vascular stroma of human white adipose tissue.

Sorting of native (unpermeabilized) SVF-cells from human subcutaneous (s)WAT for cell surface staining (cs) of DLK1 and CD34 identified three main populations: ~10% stained cs-DLK1(+)/cs-CD34(-), ~20%...

Key immune cell cytokines have a significant role in the expansion of CD26 population of cord blood mononuclear cells.

Umbilical cord blood expresses cluster of differentiation (CD) 26, a fraction of CD34 + cells, negatively regulating in vivo homing and engraftment of hematopoietic stem cells. CD26 is highly expresse...

Minimally Invasive Percutaneous Plate Osteosynthesis Does Not Increase Complication Rates in Extra-Articular Distal Tibial Fractures.

Selection of a treatment method in cases of unstable, nonarticular distal tibial fractures is still a matter of discussion. Intramedullary nailing, which is a "gold standard" for tibial shaft fracture...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Specialized stem cells that are committed to give rise to cells that have a particular function; examples are MYOBLASTS; MYELOID PROGENITOR CELLS; and skin stem cells. (Stem Cells: A Primer [Internet]. Bethesda (MD): National Institutes of Health (US); 2000 May [cited 2002 Apr 5]. Available from:

Glycoproteins found on immature hematopoietic cells and endothelial cells. They are the only molecules to date whose expression within the blood system is restricted to a small number of progenitor cells in the bone marrow.

Transplantation of stem cells collected from the peripheral blood. It is a less invasive alternative to direct marrow harvesting of hematopoietic stem cells. Enrichment of stem cells in peripheral blood can be achieved by inducing mobilization of stem cells from the BONE MARROW.

The malignant stem cells of TERATOCARCINOMAS, which resemble pluripotent stem cells of the BLASTOCYST INNER CELL MASS. The EC cells can be grown in vitro, and experimentally induced to differentiate. They are used as a model system for studying early embryonic cell differentiation.
