Articular fibrocartilage-targeted therapy by microtubule stabilization
Here, we proposed a previously unidentified strategy in cartilage repair focusing on the modification of existing fibrocartilage into hyaline cartilage
Stem Cells – Your Body`s Natural Healing Powerhouse
Have you ever wondered how your body can heal cuts, scrapes, and broken bones? The answer lies in stem cells. Stem cells can differentiate into specific functions, such as skin, muscle, and bone cells. This ability to differentiate makes stem cells incredibly versatile and powerful in promoting natural healing in the body.

Q&A: Common calf muscle injuries in runners over 40
Calf muscle injuries are among the most common for runners over 40, particularly men. This type of soft tissue injury can heal, but it is going to take time. For younger runners, recovering from a calf muscle injury usually takes about six to eight weeks.
Novel Target Discovered for Potentially Treating and Preventing Osteoarthritis
Scientists at UF Scripps Biomedical have described a specific protein that manages activities within chondrocytes, a critical cell type that maintains healthy cartilage in joints.
What Are Cartilage Injuries Of The Knee
Cartilage lesions of the knee are a type of pathology that mostly affects the elderly population (>65 years), as they represent the beginning of arthrosis. It can happen, however, that an athlete can also suffer a cartilage lesion at a young age following an injury.
Tennis Elbow: Symptoms, Causes, and Treatment
Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is swelling, inflammation, and subsequent tearing of the tendons in your forearm.These tissues, which attach muscle to bone, can become overtaxed with repetitive use, causing an aching or burning pain that gets worse when you grip or lift something.
A workout for cartilage implants
Whether arising from being felled on the soccer pitch or a seemingly harmless collision with a coffee table, a minor injury to the cartilage in your knee can have major consequences. In the worst case, the weak spot gives rise to severe arthritis and an artificial knee is the only hope. However, if the problem is caught early, further deterioration could be prevented by a patch repair.
