Hormones, prp, stem cells

Maria Giovanna Scioli, Alessandra Bielli, Pietro Gentile, Valerio Cervelli, Augusto Orlandi
Osteochondral lesions due to injury or other pathology commonly result in the development of osteoarthritis and progressive joint destruction. Bioengineered scaffolds are widely studied for regenerative surgery strategies in osteochondral defect management, also combining the use of stem cells, growth factors and hormones. The utility in tissue engineering of human adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) isolated from adipose tissue has been widely noted. Autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) represents an alternative strategy in regenerative medicine for the local release of endogenous growth factors and hormones...
