Interleukin-1 beta influences on lysyl oxidases and matrix metalloproteinases profile of injured anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament fibroblasts


The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is known to have a poor healing ability, especially in comparison with the medial collateral ligament (MCL) which can heal relatively well. Interleukin-1beta (IL-1β) is considered to be an important chemical mediator in the acute inflammatory phase of ligament injury. The role of IL-1β-induced expressions of lysyl… (More)
