The article presents specialty update in orthopedic trauma. The specialty update has several sections which include general topics, clinical, and axial skeleton. General topics section include basic science, developmental biology, and tissue engineering and nanotechnology. The clinical section reviews three studies involving the application of growth factor on a bovine collagen sponge to a site of tibial pathology.

    Keloids are benign skin tumours occurring during wound healing in genetically predisposed patients. They are characterized by an abnormal deposition of extracellular matrix components, particularly collagen. There is uncertain evidence that transforming growth factor-beta (TGF β) is involved...

    The renin-angiotensin system seems to play an important role in the pathogenesis of renal interstitial fibrosis. However, the potential direct effects of angiotensin II (Ang II) on cultured renal fibroblasts have been little studied. We have observed that rat renal interstitial fibroblasts (NRK...

    The article focuses on the importance of cytokines and growth factors in the regulation of osteoblast function and bone formation by selecting examples that illustrate different aspects of cytokine-mediated regulation of bone metabolism. Cytokines are small polypeptide molecules that bind to...

    Human epidermal growth factor (hEGF) is a polypeptide of 53 amino acids, is an important autocrine/paracrine factor in the human body, and is used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. We constructed a fusion hEGF protein with a collagen-binding domain (CBD) composed of 33 amino acids...

    Transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-ß1) is involved in bone metabolism and collagen type I alpha 1 (COL1A1) is the most abundant protein of bone matrix. Both have been considered as candidate genes for osteoporosis. In this study, we employed the transmission disequilibrium test (TDT) to...

    Fusion of the collagen type I α 1 (COL1A1) gene with the platelet-derived growth factor B-chain (PDGFB) gene has been pointed out in dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans. Various exons of the COL1A1 gene have been shown to he involved in the fusion with exon 2 of the PDGFB gene. We studied the...

    The pulpal response to orthodontic force is thought to involve cell damage, inflammation, and wound healing. These situations are likely to be associated with the release of angiogenic growth factors. We therefore investigated human dental pulps to determine if angiogenic changes could be...
