Bioactive surfaces from seaweed-derived alginates for the cultivation of human stem cells

Nowadays, modern approaches in tissue engineering include the combination of therapeutic relevant cells with high quality, biocompatible biomaterials. The resulting cellularized scaffolds are of great interest for several pharmaceutical applications such as drug screening/discovery, disease modeling, and toxicity testing. In addition, the introduction of human-induced pluripotent...

First metatarsophalangeal joint arthrodesis versus proximal phalanx hemiarthroplasty for hallux rigidus: feasibility study for a randomised controlled trial

Background Osteoarthritis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint (hallux rigidus) leads to pain and poor function and mobility. Arthrodesis is the gold standard treatment for end-stage disease. Total joint arthroplasties have been attempted, but early loosening has been attributed to dorsally directed shear forces on the metatarsal component. Metallic proximal phalangeal...
