In children with Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease, loss of blood supply to the femoral head results in ischemic osteonecrosis. Generally, macrophages play important roles in the inflammatory response to tissue necrosis, but their role in ischemic osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) is not known. The purpose of this study was to determine the macrophage-inflammatory responses after ONFH and the receptor mechanisms involved in sensing the necrotic bone, using a piglet model of Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease. Induction of ONFH resulted in increased numbers of CD14(+) macrophages (4...

BACKGROUND: Steroid-induced osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) is the most common clinical nontraumatic ONFH. Once ONFH occurs, it seriously reduces patients' quality of life. The matrix metalloproteinase/tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase (MMP/TIMP) system was found to play a significant role in the development of ONFH. The aim of this study was to identify the associations between 7 genes selected from the MMP/TIMP system and steroid-induced ONFH. METHODS: We genotyped 34 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of 7 genes selected from the MMP/TIMP system in a case-control study with 285 cases of steroid-induced ONFH and 308 healthy controls...

Steroid-associated osteonecrosis (SAON) is one of the common complications of clinical glucocorticoid (GC) administration, with osteocyte apoptosis appearing as the primary histopathological lesion. However, the precise mechanism underlying SAON remains unknown. Epigenetic modification may be a major cause of SAON. Recently, cumulative research revealed that Ten-Eleven Translocation (TET) proteins can catalyze the conversion of 5-methylcytosine (5mC) to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC) and then alter the epigenetic state of DNA...

Osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) is a complex and multifactorial disease that is influenced by a number of genetic factors in addition to environmental factors. Some autoimmune disorders, including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), are associated with the development of ONFH. Complement receptor type 2 (CR2) is membrane glycoprotein which binds C3 degradation products generated during complement activation. CR2 has many important functions in normal immunity and is assumed to play a role in the development of autoimmune disease...

Treatment induced non-traumatic osteonecrosis (ON) has been reported increasingly in children treated for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Several risk factors for ON have been identified in childhood cancer patients; however, their diagnostic and prognostic power is limited and the etiology of the disease remains unclear. Therefore, a continuous effort is focused on the identification of additional ON risk factors. We performed a retrospective study of 313 childhood ALL patients to test the association between the ON occurrence in children receiving ALL therapy and common polymorphisms in potential target genes: Thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT; 460G>A, 719A>G), 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR; 677C>T, 1298A>C), estrogen receptor alpha 1 (ESR1; XbaI) and collagen type I, α1 (COL1A1; Sp1)...

P-glycoprotein (P-gp) plays a role in steroid-induced osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH), but the underlying mechanism remains unknown. We hypothesized that P-gp overexpression can prevent ONFH by regulating bone marrow-derived multipotent stromal cell (BMSC) adipogenesis and osteogenesis. BMSCs from Sprague-Dawley rats were transfected with green fluorescent protein (GFP) or the multidrug resistance gene 1 (MDR1) encoding GFP and P-gp. Dexamethasone was used to induce BMSC differentiation. Adipogenesis was determined by measuring peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR-γ) expression and the triglyceride level...

Hip cartilage destruction is consistently observed in the non-traumatic osteonecrosis of femoral head (NOFH) and accelerates its bone necrosis. The molecular mechanism underlying the cartilage damage of NOFH remains elusive. In this study, we conducted a systematically comparative study of gene expression profiles between NOFH and osteoarthritis (OA). Hip articular cartilage specimens were collected from 12 NOFH patients and 12 controls with traumatic femoral neck fracture for microarray (n=4) and quantitative real-time PCR validation experiments (n=8)...
