2003) found an increase in chondrocyte hypertrophy of the chondrogenic layer, increased endochondral ossification and a marked increase in Metabolic activity in the group treated with LIPUS.
The human dermal fibroblasts cultured on macroporous gelatin microcarriers encapsulated in platelet-rich plasma into three-dimensional constructs were successfully differentiated towards chondrogenic and osteogenic phenotypes using specific induction media (11).
Since nanoparticles have significant limitations in bearing compressive loading, they have been mainly studied in cartilage pathology as signal delivery substrate to enhance chondrogenic differentiation of pluripotent cells [16].
Pelvic chondrosarcomas can appear in various pathologic neoplasms, other than pure chondrosarcoma arising from the pelvic bone, such as chondrogenic tumors of the ovaries or heterologous carcinosarcomas of the uterus.
2005a,b) have shown that sclerotic osteoblasts inhibit aggrecan production on protein and gene expression level and lead to a reduction in chondrogenic transcription factor SOX9 and collagen II on mRNA level compared to non-sclerotic osteoblasts.
6) PRP is rich in growth factors, containing those that help the proliferation of chondrogenic cells and discharging of cartilaginous matrix, such as platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), transforming growth factor (TGF-b), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and insulin-like growth factor (IGF).
In the present study, there were 12 cases of bone forming tumours, 8 cases (16%) of osteosarcoma, 1 case (2%) of chondrogenic osteosarcoma, 2 cases (4%) of osteoid osteoma and 1 case (2%) of osteoma.
T3 is responsible for proper chondrogenic processes, and also for mineralization processes.
Their chondrogenic ability has arguably gained the most attention [38] and could be utilized to aid in reconstitution of connective tissue loss in manyjoints, namely, the knee, which is crucial given the fact that chondrocytes are terminally differentiated, quiescent cells and do not regenerate damaged tissue.
