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.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

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...
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...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of low-intensity, pulsed ultrasound on tibial fractures treated with intramedullary nailing.
Case series of tibial plateau fractures using Norian Drillable.
This is a prospective dose escalation study of the administration of adult human stem cells in patients with end stage liver failure. Successive groups of two patients will receive ascendi...
Patients with tibial pilon fractures have a higher incidence of post-traumatic osteoarthritis than those with fractures of the tibial plateau. This may indicate that pilon fractures present a greater ...
Tibial plateau fractures are of great challenge to treat with open reduction and internal fixation, because fractures vary from simple to complex, with little or extensive articular involvement. Hence...
For tibial fractures, the decision to fix a concomitant fibular fracture is undertaken on a case-by-case basis. To aid in this clinical decision-making process, we investigated whether loss of integri...
Lower tibial extra-articular fractures of lower tibial extra-articular bone, treated with Minimally Invasive Percutaneous plate osteosynthesis (MIPPO) may have certain advantages, though the modiality...
Evidence of distinct disease propagating stem cells in myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) has emerged in recent years. However, immunophenotypic characterization of these cancer stem cells remains sparse....
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.

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.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
