The osteogenic potential of ligament fibroblasts is greater in ankylosing spondylitis patients than in patients with osteoarthritis

Abstract

The goal of the present study was to investigate the osteogenic potential of ligament fibroblasts from patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Ligament fibroblasts were isolated from tissues harvested from AS patients and patients with aseptic necrosis of the femoral head (ANFH) who had undergone total hip arthroplasty (THA). Cells were cultured in… (More)
