Proliferation and chondrogenic commitment of cultured articular chondrocytes are impaired when cells derive from aged donors. In those subjects the feasibility of cell-based therapies for articular surface repair is reduced.

Abstract

Proliferation and chondrogenic commitment of cultured articular chondrocytes are impaired when cells derive from aged donors. In those subjects the feasibility of cell-based therapies for articular surface repair is reduced. Moreover, the use of serum as medium supplement elicits non-physiological responses in cultured chondrocytes. This study was therefore undertaken to identify the expansion culture conditions needed to sustain growth and chondrogenic commitment of chondrocytes harvested from aged human subjects.
