Transient exposure of fibroblast growth factor-2 induced proliferative but not destructive changes in mouse knee joints.

Abstract

Fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) has the potential to regenerate damaged articular cartilage tissue due to its exerting anabolic effects on chondrocytes. However, FGF-2 is involved in pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis, where the joint is destructed. The study aims at clarifying the effects of FGF-2 on joints. When radiolabeled FGF-2 was injected into… (More)
