Using an in vivo adeno-associated virus (AAV)-mediated gene transfer technique, this study evaluated the therapeutic effects of an osteoprotegerin (OPG) transgene against orthopaedic wear debris-induced osteolysis in a long-term murine model. A titanium pin was surgically implanted into proximal tibia of Balb/c mice to mimic a weight-bearing knee(More)
Exogenous osteoprotegerin (OPG) gene modification appears a therapeutic strategy for osteolytic aseptic loosening. The feasibility and efficacy of a cell-based OPG gene delivery approach were investigated using a murine model of knee prosthesis failure. A titanium pin was implanted into mouse proximal tibia to mimic a weight-bearing knee arthroplasty,(More)
Wear particle-induced periprosthetic osteolysis is the main cause of aseptic loosening of orthopaedic implants. The aim of this study is to determine the protective effect of quercetin (QUE) against titanium (Ti) particle-induced ERS-related apoptosis and osteolysis. In this study, RAW264.7 cells were pretreated with different concentrations (40, 80, and(More)
Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is a common procedure for the treatment of end-stage hip joint disease, and the demand for revision THA will double by 2026. Ti6Al4V (Titanium, 6% Aluminum, and 4% Vanadium) is a kind of alloy commonly used to make hip prothesis. To promote the osseointegration between the prothesis and host bone is very important for the(More)
