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...
Large articular cartilage defects have proven difficult to treat and often result in osteoarthritis of the affected joint. Cryopreservation of articular cartilage can provide an increased supply of tissues for osteochondral allograft but cryoprotective agents are required; however, few studies...
Loading vitrifiable concentrations of cryoprotective agents is an important step for cryopreservation of biological tissues by vitrification for research and transplantation purposes. This may be done by immersing the tissue in a cryoprotective agent (CPA) solution, and increasing the...
Objective: Osteochondral allografting is an effective method to treat large osteochondral defects but difficulties in tissue preservation have significantly limited the application of this technique. Successful cryopreservation of articular cartilage (AC) could improve the clinical availability...
Articular cartilage injury is a major risk factor for the development of osteoarthritis, a condition that results in significant patient morbidity and substantial cost to the healthcare system. Due to the limited capacity of articular cartilage to regenerate, early intervention is required to...
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...
The role of cultured chondrocytes and mesenchymal stem cells in the repair of acute articular cartilage injuriesDownload
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a disease that has significant individual, social, and economic impact worldwide. Although many etiologies lead to the eventual development of OA, one potentially treatable cause is the acute articular cartilage (AC) injury. These injuries are common and have a poor...
Articular cartilage injuries do not heal and large defects result in osteoarthritis with major personal and socioeconomic costs. Osteochondral transplantation is an effective treatment for large joint defects but its use is limited by the inability to store cartilage for long periods of time....
