Abstract:   (2692 Views)
  • Cartilage regenerative medicine has been met with much interest due to their ability to inhibit disease progression of osteoarthritis (OA). The use of adipose-derived stem cells has been suggested as a reliable method for OA treatment because of their potential to differentiate into a variety of cell lines and their potent capability to self-renewal and repair. The aim of this study is to assess adipose-derived stem cells in combination with PRP ability in treating a patient with knee OA.
  • A 53-year- old man with osteoarthritis was selected for this treatment. Human abdominal subcutaneous adipose sample was obtained from a patient with knee OA. Stem cells were obtained from adipose tissue of abdominal origin by digesting lipoaspirate tissue with collagenase. ADSCs cultured in DMEM medium supplemented with 10% FBS. Also, ADSCs expanded and characterized by flow cytometry. These stem cells, along with platelet-rich plasma and calcium chloride, were injected into the right knee. Pre-treatment and post-treatment MRI scans, physical therapy, and pain score data were then analyzed.
  • The MRI data for the patient demonstrated significant positive changes. Probable cartilage regeneration was sensible in the patient. Along with MRI evidence, the measured physical therapy outcomes, subjective pain, and functional status all improved. Autologous adipose-derived stem cell injection, in conjunction with platelet-rich plasma is a promising minimally invasive therapy for osteoarthritis of human knees.
  • The present clinical case report demonstrated that a combination of percutaneous injection of autologous ADSCs and PRPmay be able to regenerate cartilage in human knee OA.
