Evaluation of the biocompatibility of a chitosan scaffold in mice.
Chitosan scaffolds appear to be suitable for a variety of tissue engineering applications. This study addressed the biocompatibility of chitosan in a mouse implantation model. Porous chitosanExpand

Protective effects of IL-1Ra or vIL-10 gene transfer on a murine model of wear debris-induced osteolysis
The current study evaluated the protective effects of anti-inflammatory cytokine gene transfer on osteolysis provoked by orthopedic biomaterial particles using a murine model of inflammatory boneExpand

Morphological characteristics of total joint arthroplasty-derived ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) wear debris that provoke inflammation in a murine model of inflammation.
It is recognized that the chronic inflammation in peri-prosthetic tissue that contributes to implant failure frequently is provoked by the presence of wear debris. Some wear debris is inevitableExpand

TNF receptor gene therapy results in suppression of IgG2a anticollagen antibody in collagen induced arthritis
Background: Therapeutic strategies to block tumour necrosis factor α (TNFα) activity in experimental autoimmune arthritis models and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have proved highly successful, andExpand

IFNgamma deficient C57BL/6 (H-2b) mice develop collagen induced arthritis with predominant usage of T cell receptor Vbeta6 and Vbeta8 in arthritic joints.
BACKGROUND Transgenic deficiency in interferon gamma (IFNgamma) or IFNgamma receptor makes resistant strains of mice bearing H-2(b) or H-2(d) susceptible to collagen induced arthritis (CIA). Expand

Murine model of prosthesis failure for the long‐term study of aseptic loosening
We examined a novel mouse model of wear debris‐induced prosthesis instability and osteolysis, and its application for the evaluation of therapy. A stainless steel or titanium‐alloy pin was implantedExpand
