Stem Cells and Tibial Fractures

11:58 EDT 28th April 2015 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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...

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...

Complications of Tibial Eminence and Diaphyseal Fractures in Children: Prevention and Treatment.

Fractures of the tibial eminence and of the diaphyseal tibia are common pediatric orthopaedic injuries. Although most tibial fractures can be treated nonsurgically, those that require surgical interve...

Erythroid differentiation of human induced pluripotent stem cells is independent of donor cell type of origin.

Epigenetic memory in induced pluripotent stem cells, with regards to their somatic cell type of origin, might lead to variations in their differentiation capacities. In this context, induced pluripote...

Generation of multipotent early lymphoid progenitors from human embryonic stem cells.

During human embryonic stem cell (ESC) hematopoietic differentiation, the description of the initial steps of lymphopoiesis remains elusive. Using a two-step culture procedure we identified two origin...

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: http://www.nih.gov/news/stemcell/primer.htm)

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.
