The article discusses issues related to advances in orthopedics. It outlines the significant advances made in understanding the mechanisms of tissue degradation and in applying this knowledge to the development of molecular therapies for tissue repair. It also describes developments in total joint arthroplasty and recent progress in understanding the plasticity of stem cells and in applying such knowledge to the design of constructs to repair tissue.

    According to several reports in the last few years, desoxypyridinoline (Dpd) in urine increases significantly in cases of loosened arthroplasty. Therefore, this marker was suggested as useful in the diagnostics of implant loosening. In this study, the level of Dpd was determined in 69 patients...
