Tendinopathy is a multifactorial spectrum of tendon disorders that affects different anatomical sites and is characterized by activity-related tendon pain. These disorders are common, account for a high proportion (∼30%) of referrals to musculoskeletal practitioners and confer a large socioeconomic burden of disease. Our incomplete understanding of the mechanisms underpinning tendon pathophysiology continues to hamper the development of targeted therapies, which have been successful in other… Expand
The roles of inflammatory mediators and immunocytes in tendinopathy
TLDR
It is proposed that in addition to pulling force there may be compressive forces being exerted on the tendon during physical activities, which may initiate the onset of tendinopathy. Expand
Updated Review on Tendinopathy
TLDR
The mechanical, vascular, neural, and other theories that seek to explain the pathologic process are explored in this article, as well as the rationale for surgical intervention. Expand
Mitochondrial dysfunction and potential mitochondrial protectant treatments in tendinopathy
TLDR
The potential mechanism by which mitochondrial dysfunction contributes to the development of tendinopathy, as well as the potential therapeutic benefits of mitochondrial protectants in the treatment of tend inopathy are summarized. Expand
Divergent roles of prostacyclin and PGE2 in human tendinopathy
TLDR
The results suggest that PGE2 sustains inflammation and pain while prostacyclin may have a protective role in human tendon disease. Expand
Review: Emerging concepts in the pathogenesis of tendinopathy
TLDR
This review is a summary of the emerging research in this topical area, with a particular focus on the role of neuronal regulation and inflammation in tendinopathy. Expand
Recent advances in tendinopathy
TLDR
The current thinking on the basic science and clinical management of tendinopathy and in particular new findings in the tendon repair space that are relevant to the pathophysiology of Tendinopathy are discussed. Expand
Peroneal Tendonitis and Tendonopathy
TLDR
Clinically, the causes of these alterations can be classified into intrinsic and extrinsic factors specific to each patient, and practitioners should consider these factors when developing patient treatment strategies, with a particular emphasis on risk factors that are modifiable. Expand
Cytokines in tendon disease
TLDR
A systematic review of the literature highlights the roles of IL-1β,IL-6, IL-10, and TNF-α in the development of tendon disease, during tendon healing, and in response to exercise and suggests that other cytokines are also contributing to tendon inflammatory processes. Expand
Advances with platelet rich plasma therapies for tendon regeneration
TLDR
New insights are provided into the pathophysiology of tendinopathy, PRP therapies, and the potential links between both as well as the place of PRP in promoting tendon repair within what is currently understood regarding the role ofPRP molecules in promote tendon regeneration. Expand
Cytokine “fine tuning” of enthesis tissue homeostasis as a pointer to spondyloarthritis pathogenesis with a focus on relevant TNF and IL-17 targeted therapies
TLDR
How human genetic studies, animal models and translational human immunology around TNF and IL-17 suggest a largely redundant role for these pathways in physiological tissue repair and homeostasis is discussed. Expand

Pathogenesis of tendinopathies: inflammation or degeneration?
The intrinsic pathogenetic mechanisms of tendinopathies are largely unknown and whether inflammation or degeneration has the prominent role is still a matter of debate. Assuming that there is aExpand
Tendinopathy and Inflammation: Some Truths
TLDR
Prolonged systemic, low-grade inflammation and impaired insulin sensitivity act as a risk factor for a “failed healing response” after an acute tendon insult, and predispose to the development of chronic overuse tendinopathies. Expand
The Peripheral Neuronal Phenotype is Important in the Pathogenesis of Painful Human Tendinopathy: A Systematic Review
TLDR
The peripheral neuronal phenotype is an important factor in the pathogenesis of painful human tendinopathy and further research in this area specifically correlating tissue changes to clinical scores has great potential in further developing the understanding of the disease process. Expand
Resolving an inflammatory concept: The importance of inflammation and resolution in tendinopathy
TLDR
New evidence for the importance of resolution of inflammation after tendon injury is summarized and it is proposed that these findings have profound implications not only for current treatment strategies but also for the possibility of developing novel therapeutic approaches involving modulation of the inflammatory process. Expand
The Basic Science of Tendinopathy
TLDR
Prevention of tendinopathy should be directed at reducing the volume of repetitive loads to below that which induces oxidative-induced apoptosis and cartilage-like genes. Expand
Inflammation is Present in Early Human Tendinopathy
TLDR
Evidence is provided for an inflammatory cell infiltrate in early mild/moderate human tendinopathy, and significant infiltration of mast cells and macrophages is demonstrated, suggesting a role for innate immune pathways in the events that mediate early tend inopathy. Expand
What are the validated animal models for tendinopathy?
TLDR
It is concluded that established clinical, histopathological and functional characteristics of human tendinopathy were all important and relevant criteria to be met, if possible, by animal models. Expand
Are inflammatory cells increased in painful human tendinopathy? A systematic review
TLDR
The existing evidence supports the hypothesis that increased numbers of inflammatory cells are present in pathological tendons, and the lack of high-quality quantitative studies in this area demonstrates a clear need for future research to better understand the role of inflammation in tendinopathy. Expand
Regulation of gene expression in human tendinopathy
TLDR
Histological evaluation and molecular profiling were used to determine gene expression changes in 23 human patients undergoing surgical procedures for the treatment of chronic tendinopathy to contribute to the understanding of the disease and the development of novel therapeutics. Expand
Basic Concepts of Enthesis Biology and Immunology
TLDR
Observations pertaining to the close functional interdependence between the enthesis and adjacent synovium have led to the concept of a synovio-entheseal complex, which is important for understanding joint physiology and pathophysiologic mechanisms of synovitis in PsA. Expand
