Hyaluronic Acid Based Hydrogels Attenuate Inflammatory Receptors and Neurotrophins in Interleukin-1β Induced Inflammation Model of Nucleus Pulposus Cells.

Abstract

Inflammation plays an important role in symptomatic intervertebral disc degeneration and is associated with the production of neurotrophins in sensitizing innervation into the disc. The use of high molecular weight (HMw) hyaluronic acid (HA) hydrogels offers a potential therapeutic biomaterial for nucleus pulposus (NP) regeneration as it exerts an anti… (More)
