Many factors affecting mesenchymal and osteoprogenitor cell proliferation have been determined in serum after TBI, however, the results are controversial, and ossification and CNS damage are linked to an accidental association (30).
Specifically, osteoconductivity refers to material in which the graft supports the attachment of new osteoblasts and osteoprogenitor cells that form an interconnected structure that supports the growth of new bone.
Because PRP enhances osteoprogenitor cells in the host bone and in bone grafts (Marx et al.
Because there was no Pb exposure in the culture medium during osteoblast differentiation, we interpret these results as a reduction in the total number of osteoprogenitor cells.
Recently reported scientific findings from a study titled "Extracorporeal Shock Wave Stimulation of Osteoprogenitor Cells," presented at the 2009 International Bone-Tissue-Engineering Congress ("Bone-Tec"), indicate that this technology can create autogenous sources of stem cells for bone tissue engineering and repair.
At a fracture site, presumably the BMP is released at a higher concentration because of the secretion by the transformed inflammatory cells into osteoprogenitor cells and upregulation of BMP from the released cytokines at the fracture site.
These results strongly suggest that the collagen-GAG-coated HA has the capacity to provide a major scaffold for osteoprogenitor cells.
The formation of bone involves a complex series of events, include the proliferation and differentiation of osteoprogenitor cells and result eventually in the formation of a mineralized extracellular matrix.
In that report, we also demonstrated that treatment with PTH stimulates proliferation and differentiation of osteoprogenitor cells and production of bone matrix proteins early in the fracture healing process.
