Hip osteoarthritis: an alternative to endoprosthesis

Dear Sir or Madam,

Many patients with advanced hip osteoarthritis decide to get an endoprosthesis. This makes a pain-free life possible for them again. But it also means complex surgery that makes long rehabilitation necessary. In the future, there could be a gentler alternative: instead of replacing the joint, a sleeve made from polyurethane could be implanted there. Learn more about this in our interview.

Enjoy reading,

New approach makes cells resistant to HIV

Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have found a way to tether HIV-fighting antibodies to immune cells, creating a cell population resistant to the virus. Their experiments under lab conditions show that these resistant cells can quickly replace diseased cells, potentially curing the disease in a person with HIV.

Cause of an inherited neurological disorder discovered

Researchers at the University of Liverpool have identified the basis for how a single gene mutation can cause a rare neurological movement disorder known as dystonia. It can result from an injury or can be an inherited disorder in which patients progressively develop from childhood uncontrollable muscle contractions leading to repetitive movements and awkward and painful postures.

Hip joint: sleeve versus endoprosthesis

Interview

People with hip osteoarthritis often suffer from severe pain and only an endoprosthesis implantation can provide relief. This involves a major intervention and long-term rehabilitation because the implant requires the removal of a section of the thigh bone. The "MioHIP" research project looks for an elastic alternative.
