Exosomes from Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Better Than Synovial Membrane Stem Cells Exosomes for Treating Osteoarthritis

Exosomes from Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Better Than Synovial Membrane Stem Cells Exosomes for Treating Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. About one in 10 people will develop osteoarthritis at some point in their lifetimes. As the condition progresses, synovial membranes and cartilage break down. Osteoarthritis causes people to experience joint pain, joint stiffness, and restricted movement. Knees, hips, and hands are common sites for arthritis, though people…

Stem Cells Plus Hyaluronic Acid Repair Joint Cartilage Defects

Cartilage plays several important roles in the way joints move and function. Joint cartilage provides lubrication, acts as a shock absorber, and helps the joint move smoothly. Joint cartilage is comprised of two substances chondrocytes (i.e. cartilage cells) and extracellular matrix (proteins such as hyaluronic acid, collagen, fibronectin, etc.). Many conditions can lead to joint…
