Biologic Approaches for the Treatment of Partial Tears of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament

Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) has been established as the gold standard for treatment of complete ruptures of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in active, symptomatic individuals. In contrast, treatment of partial tears of the ACL remains controversial. Biologically augmented ACL-repair techniques are expanding in an attempt to regenerate and improve healing and outcomes of both the native ACL and the reconstructed graft tissue.

Function and Therapeutic Potential of Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis, a vascular disorder leading to occlusion of the arterial wall, causes several important complications including coronary and cerebral artery diseases. Smoking, hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia are well-known risk factors for atherosclerosis. Despite the effctive treatment targeting serum lipid abnormalities, atherosclerosis remains a leading cause of mortality.
