Nutritional Metabolic and Genetic Considerations to Optimize Regenerative Outcomes for Knee Osteoarthritis 

New research published by TOBI Faculty and Alumni suggests the potential influence of metabolic, nutritional and genetic aspects in optimizing the outcomes of regenerative medicine in the management of Knee Osteoarthritis (KOA). Nutritional and metabolic aspects such as supplementations, vitamins and minerals were proven to have an impact on the progression of KOA. Genetic variations are rapidly inspected to identify any potential influence of these variations in the predisposition and diagnosis of KOA. Congratulation on new publication to Kholoud Hafsi, Janine McKay, Jinjie Li, Jose Fabio...

Current Concepts in Intraosseous Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections for Knee Osteoarthritis 

New research published by TOBI Faculty shows in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis, the combination of intraarticular infiltrations with intraosseous infiltrations regulates the biological processes of the tissues, reducing the inflammatory environment and modulating the overexpression of biomolecules that generate an aberrant cellular behavior. Congratulation on new publication to Delgado D, Garate A, Bilbao AM, and TOBI Faculty Vincent H, Patel R, Fiz N, Sampson S, Sánchez M.
