Chemotherapeutic insensitivity remains a major obstacle to osteosarcoma treatment. Recently, increasing evidence has suggested that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play an essential role in tumourigenesis. However, the potential biological roles and regulatory mechanisms of novel lncRNAs in response to cisplatin treatment are poorly understood. Here, we(More)
Recent studies regarding regenerative medicine have focused on bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs), which have the potential to undergo neural differentiation, and may be transfected with specific genes. BMSCs can differentiate into neuron‑like cells in certain neurotropic circumstances in vitro. Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and nerve growth(More)
Mechanical cues exert considerable influence on the fates of stem cells and terminally differentiated chondrocytes. The elucidation of the interactions between cell fate and mechanical cues in nuclear mechanotransduction will provide new clues to modulate tissue homeostasis and regeneration. In this study, we used an integrated microfluidic perfusion device(More)
Cartilage defect is an intractable clinical problem. Therapeutic strategies for cartilage repair are far from optimal due to poor proliferation capacity of chondrocytes. Autologous chondrocyte implantation is a cell based therapy that uses in vitro amplified healthy chondrocytes from the patient. However, chondrocyte dedifferentiation during in vitro(More)
INTRODUCTION Chimeric antigen receptor modified T cell (CAR-T) therapy has achieved encouraging breakthroughs in the treatment of hematological malignancies. Nevertheless, this success has not yet been extrapolated to solid tumors. This review focuses on new clinical regimens that could improve the therapeutic efficacy of CAR-T in solid tumors. Areas(More)
Zonal structures of engineered cartilage are thought to be essential for cartilage repair. Engineering zonalcartilage with zonal chondrocytes may improve the functions of engineered cartilage. However, zonal chondrocytes must be expanded to obtain sufficient cells, leading to a loss of zonal characteristics. Co-culture could replace most zonal chondrocytes(More)
Due to the low proliferative and migratory capacities of chondrocytes, cartilage repair remains a challenging clinical problem. Current therapeutic strategies for cartilage repair result in unsatisfactory outcomes. Autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) is a cell based therapy that relies on the in vitro expansion of healthy chondrocytes from the(More)
Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-modified T cell (CAR T) is a promising therapeutic option for patients with cancer. Such an approach requires the identification of tumor-specific antigen targets that are expressed in solid tumors. We developed a new third-generation CAR directed against tissue factor (TF), a surface molecule overexpressed in some types of(More)
