A conventional therapy for the treatment of osteoarthrosis is intra-articular injection of hyaluronic acid, which requires repeated, frequent injections. To extend the viscosupplementation effect of hyaluronic acid, we propose to associate it with another biopolymer in the form of a hybrid hydrogel. Chitosan was chosen because of its structural similarity(More)
To overcome the problem of fast degradation of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA), HA was protected against the oxidative stress generated by the pathology. Antioxidant conjugated HAs were synthesized and tested in vitro for their resistance in an oxidative environment mimicking OA. HA-4-aminoresorcinol (HA-4AR) displayed the(More)
OBJECTIVE The anti-inflammatory and anti-catabolic effects of neonatal Mesenchymal Stromal Cell (MSC) were investigated in a xenogeneic model of mild osteoarthritis (OA). The paracrine properties of MSC on synoviocytes were further investigated in vitro. STUDY DESIGN OA was induced by medial meniscal release (MMR) in 30 rabbit knees. A single early (day(More)
