Augmenting the articular cartilage-implant interface: Functionalizing with a collagen adhesion protein.


The lack of integration between implants and articular cartilage is an unsolved problem that negatively impacts the development of treatments for focal cartilage defects. Many approaches attempt to increase the number of matrix-producing cells that can migrate to the interface, which may help to reinforce the boundary over time but does not address the… (More)
