We deciphered constituent parts of a signal transduction cascade that is initiated by collagen II and results in the release of various pro-inflammatory cytokines, including interleukin-6 (IL-6), in primary human chondrocytes. This cascade represents a feed-forward mechanism whereby cartilage matrix degradation is exacerbated by the mutually inducing effect… (More)
RNAi-mediated gene silencing is a recent, powerful tool to investigate gene function. Controlling for experimental factors such as transfection efficiencies, siRNA concentration, gene suppression levels, gene suppression kinetics, or non-specific effects is key to robust results. In this methods paper, we compare the efficiencies of different transfection… (More)
The subject of treatment of pain in children and elderly patients has been neglected to date. This symposium deals with the problems of pain treatment in these two age groups and shows the importance of adequate therapy to improve their quality of life.
