Stem Cells and Tibial Fractures

2014-08-27 03:32:19 | 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...

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.

Biomimetic Macroporous PCL Scaffolds for Ex Vivo Expansion of Cord Blood-Derived CD34(+) Cells with Feeder Cells Support.

Ex vivo expansion of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) with most current methods can hardly satisfy clinical application requirement. While in vivo, HSCs efficiently self-renew in niche where they inter...

The morphological features of different Schatzker types of tibial plateau fractures: a three-dimensional computed tomography study.

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...

Phenotypic Characterization of Adherent Cells Population CD34+ CD90+ CD105+ Derived from Wharton's Jelly.

BACKGROUND Mesenchymal stromal cells, MSCs, show expression of specific antigens on their surface. The aim of the study is to assess the phenotype of stem cells like isolated from the umbilical cord w...

Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) induce ex vivo proliferation and erythroid commitment of cord blood haematopoietic stem cells (CB-CD34+ cells).

A human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cell (MSCs) and cord blood-derived CD34+ stem cell co-culture system was set up in order to evaluate the proliferative and differentiative effects induc...

Role of the fibula in the stability of diaphyseal tibial fractures fixed by intramedullary nailing.

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A member of the prominin family, AC133 Antigen is a 5-transmembrane antigen occurring as several isoforms produced by alternative splicing which are processed into mature forms. In humans, it is expressed as a subset of CD34 (bright) human hematopoietic stem cells and CD34 positive leukemias. Functionally, it is associated with roles in cell differentiation, proliferation, and apoptosis. Specifically, it regulates the organization of apical plasma membrane in epithelial cells, disk morphogenesis during early retinal development, MAPK and Akt signaling pathways, and in cholesterol metabolism.

Fractures of the TIBIA.

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)

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.

Bone-marrow-derived, non-hematopoietic cells that support HEMATOPOETIC STEM CELLS. They have also been isolated from other organs and tissues such as UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD, umbilical vein subendothelium, and WHARTON JELLY. These cells are considered to be a source of multipotent stem cells because they include subpopulations of mesenchymal stem cells.
