Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disease. Recently, a novel variant near the nuclear receptor coactivator 3 (NCOA3) has been identified in association with greater risk of developing OA. However, how NCOA3 is regulated in chondrocytes and involved in OA pathogenesis remain elusive.

Osteoarthritis (OA) can be regarded as a chronic, painful and degenerative disease that affects all tissues of a joint and one of the major endpoints being loss of articular cartilage. In most cases, ...
Vascular invasion is observed at the osteochondral junction in osteoarthritis (OA). Nerve growth factor (NGF) as an angiogenic factor is expressed in OA. This study is to investigate the effects of NG...
In this study we examined whether the action of simvastatin affects re-differentiation of passaged chondrocytes and if so, whether this was mediated via changes in cholesterol or cholesterol intermedi...
Tissue-specific gene expression defines cellular identity and function, but knowledge of early human development is limited, hampering application of cell-based therapies. Here we profiled 5 distinct ...
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint degenerative biomechanical disorder involving immunity, metabolic alterations, inflammation, and cartilage degradation, where chondrocytes play a pivotal role. OA has no...
The primary goal of the study is to identify biomarkers from the molecular signature predictive of pre-term birth. This will be achieved through high frequency sampling and profiling throu...
The aim of the SARI study was to describe biomarkers of predisposition to the development of sarcomas in irradiated territory. This study included 120 patients with sarcoma in irradiated t...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the percentage cases which have ideal mechanical axial alignment using the Vanguard total Knee implant with the Signature cutting blocks i...
Implantation of fresh human allogenic chondrocytes in human knee cartilage injuries to obtain a repair and prevention of secondary osteoarthritis
This trial will utilize a Molecular MicroscopeTM diagnostic system (MMDxTM) that combines the molecular and histopathological features of biopsies, plus clinical and laboratory parameters,...
An autosomal recessive metabolic disorder caused by a deficiency of GALACTOSYLCERAMIDASE leading to intralysosomal accumulation of galactolipids such as GALACTOSYLCERAMIDES and PSYCHOSINE. It is characterized by demyelination associated with large multinucleated globoid cells, predominantly involving the white matter of the central nervous system. The loss of MYELIN disrupts normal conduction of nerve impulses.
Death of a bone or part of a bone, either atraumatic or posttraumatic.
A bone morphogenetic protein that may play a role in CARTILAGE formation. It is a potent regulator of the growth of CHONDROCYTES and the synthesis of cartilage matrix proteins. Evidence for its role in cartilage formation can be seen in MICE, where genetic mutations that cause loss of bone morphogenetic protein 5 function result in the formation of small malformed ears.
Polymorphic cells that form cartilage.
An anthracene derivative that disrupts MITOCHONDRIA function and structure and is used for the treatment of DERMATOSES, especially PSORIASIS. It may cause FOLLICULITIS.
Arthritis is by definition the inflammation of one or more joints, characterized by swelling, pain, warmth, redness and diminished range of joint movement (Oxford Medical Dictionary). There are many different types; Noninflammatory; Osteoarthritis, N...
Arthritis Fibromyalgia Gout Lupus Rheumatic Rheumatology is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and management of disease involving joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments and associated structures (Oxford Medical Diction...
