Statistical prediction of the vitrifiability and glass stability of multi-component cryoprotective agent solutions.Download
Long-term biologic storage of articular cartilage has proven elusive due to cellular degradation over time or acute damage during attempts at cryopreservation. Vitrification is one option that may result in successful cryopreservation but difficulty with cryoprotective agent (CPA) toxicity at...
In previous research, we successfully cryopreserved intact human articular cartilage on its bone base with high chondrocyte viability using a vitrification protocol that entailed sequential exposure to several cryopreserving agents (CPAs) at lowering temperatures resulting in a high final...
Vitrification of articular cartilage (AC) could enhance tissue availability but requires high concentrations of cyroprotective agents (CPAs). This study investigated relative injuries caused by commonly used CPAs. We hypothesized that the in situ chondrocyte dose–injury relationships of five...
