were isolated and Western blotting was applied to detect protein levels in intervertebral discs

disease is a major epide- miological problem as 50 70% of adults experience at least one episode of the low back pain in their life time.
This 'unit' comprises the superior half of the inferior vertebrae, plus the intervertebral disc
, plus the inferior half of the superior vertebrae.
Contributors from the research side--materials science and engineering--from the application side--orthopedic surgery and pathology--and from intermediate areas--tissue engineering and biomechanics--consider fundamentals of biomaterials for spinal surgery, spinal fusion and intervertebral discs
, vertebroplasty and scoliosis surgery, and regenerative medicine in the spine.
Mesoblast Limited (ASX: MSB) of Melbourne, Australia, announced that its phase 2 clinical trial investigating the use of allogeneic, or off-the-shelf, Mesenchymal Precursor Cells (MPCs) for non-surgical restoration of degenerated intervertebral discs
and treatment of low back pain has enrolled half of the total expected patients.
