The continuous turnover of BONE MATRIX and mineral that involves first an increase in BONE RESORPTION (osteoclastic activity) and later, reactive BONE FORMATION (osteoblastic activity). The process of bone remodeling takes place in the adult skeleton at discrete foci. The process ensures the mechanical integrity of the skeleton throughout life and plays an important role in calcium HOMEOSTASIS. An imbalance in the regulation of bone remodeling's two contrasting events, bone resorption and bone formation, results in many of the metabolic bone diseases, such as OSTEOPOROSIS.

Aspergillosis in children with cancer: A 34-year experience. (2/59)

A retrospective review of medical records, microbiology and pathology laboratory records, and nosocomial infection surveillance data was undertaken to describe the experience with culture-documented aspergillus infection in pediatric cancer patients at our facility. Sixty-six patients were identified from a 34-year period. The most common underlying diagnosis was leukemia. Risk factors included neutropenia, immunosuppression, and prior antibiotic therapy. On the basis of clinical presentation, 23 patients were believed to have disseminated disease and 43 to have localized disease. The lung was the most frequently affected organ. Despite aggressive medical and surgical management, overall mortality was 85% within the first year after diagnosis. Patients who presented with disease in sites other than the lungs fared better than patients with initial pulmonary involvement (P=.0014). Aspergillosis continues to be associated with poor outcome. Development of improved medical and adjuvant therapies, including surgery, is warranted.  (+info)

A patient with chronic granulomatous disease who was being treated with steroids was diagnosed with a soft tissue Scedosporium apiospermum infection. Despite extensive treatment with antifungals progression to involve solid tissue (bone) occurred. Treatment required an HLA matched bone marrow transplant, which led to complete clearance of the fungal infection, although the patient subsequently died.  (+info)

Mechanism of accumulation of 99mTc-sulesomab in inflammation. (5/59)

99mTc-Sulesomab, the Fab fragment of anti-NCA-90, is used as an in vivo granulocyte labeling agent for imaging inflammation. It is not clear to what extent it targets cells that have already migrated into the interstitial space of an inflammatory lesion as opposed to circulating cells. The contribution to signal of radioprotein diffusion in the setting of increased vascular permeability is also poorly documented. METHODS: We compared the local kinetics of (99m)Tc-sulesomab and (99m)Tc-labeled human serum albumin (HSA), which have similar molecular sizes, in 7 patients with orthopedic infection proven by clearly positive (111)In-leukocyte scintigraphy. (99m)Tc-Sulesomab and (99m)Tc-HSA were administered in sequence separated by an interval of 2-6 d. Images were obtained 1, 3, 4, and 6 h after injection, and multiple venous blood samples were obtained for blood clearance measurement. Patlak-Rutland (P-R) analysis was performed to measure lesion and control tissue protein clearance. Target-to-background tissue (T/Bkg) ratios were calculated for each radioprotein and compared with the T/Bkg ratio for (111)In-leukocytes. (99m)Tc-Sulesomab binding to granulocytes was measured in vitro and ex vivo and to primed and activated granulocytes in vitro. RESULTS: After intravenous injection, <5% of the circulating radioactivity was cell bound with both radioproteins so that the P-R curves could therefore be assumed to represent extravascular uptake of free protein. The blood clearance (mean +/- SD) of sulesomab was 23.4 +/- 11.7 mL/min, approximately 5 times greater than that of HSA, for which it was 4.8 +/- 3.1 mL/min. Likewise, clearance into the lesion of sulesomab was consistently higher than that of HSA, on average about 3 times as high. Nevertheless, the T/Bkg ratios for sulesomab and HSA were similar, except at 6 h when that of HSA (2.14 +/- 0.6) was higher than that of sulesomab (1.93 +/- 0.5; P approximately 0.01). Both values were considerably less than the T/Bkg ratio on the (111)In-leukocyte images, which, at 22 h, was 12.3 +/- 5.3. Moderate clearance of sulesomab, but not HSA, was seen in the control tissue. Granulocytes bound significantly more (99m)Tc-sulesomab in vitro when primed or activated. CONCLUSION: (a) Sulesomab does not localize in inflammation as a result of binding to circulating granulocytes; (b) sulesomab is cleared into inflammation nonspecifically via increased vascular permeability; nevertheless, it may be cleared after local binding to primed granulocytes or bind to activated, migrated extravascular granulocytes; and (c) HSA produces a similar or higher T/Bkg ratio than sulesomab because sulesomab is cleared into normal tissues and because image positivity in inflammation is significantly dependent on local blood-pool expansion.  (+info)

Bone scintigraphy as an adjunct for the diagnosis of oral diseases. (6/59)

Bone scintigraphy is a very sensitive method for the detection of osteoblastic activity of the skeleton. The technique consists of imaging the uptake of bone-seeking radiopharmaceuticals, particularly technetium-99m labeled diphosphonates, in the mineral component of bone, which consists of hydroxyapatite crystals and calcium phosphate, as well as in the organic matrix such as collagen fibers. Plain radiographs, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging are classified as structural imaging modalities, whereas bone scintigraphy is a functional method. In many cases, radionuclide imaging techniques are the only means by which early physiologic changes that are a direct result of biochemical alteration may be assessed, before significant bone mineral changes can be detected by other means. Since many oral diseases may cause metabolic changes in the oromaxillofacial complex, it would be of great value to use bone scintigraphy to evaluate more completely some conditions involving the bones in the region to formulate more appropriate treatment plans. Based upon the current literature, the authors discuss the possible applications of bone scintigraphy as a diagnostic and treatment planning adjunct for oral diseases. Bone scintigraphy has proven particularly useful in the study of malignant lesions and in the evaluation of vascularized bone grafts used for maxillofacial reconstructions.  (+info)

Cost-minimization analysis and audit of antibiotic management of bone and joint infections with ambulatory teicoplanin, in-patient care or outpatient oral linezolid therapy. (7/59)

Bone and joint infections are significant causes of morbidity, mortality and healthcare costs. The cost of treatment for such infections is driven primarily by the length of hospital stay. Many of these infections will require treatment with prolonged periods of parenteral antibiotic therapy. Clinicians and healthcare managers are being attracted increasingly by administering treatment in the ambulatory setting as this offers clinical, economic and quality of life advantages from both the hospital's and patient's perspective. Our retrospective audit of managing 55 treatment episodes of bone and joint infections with teicoplanin delivered in the outpatient or home setting revealed that the mean cost of care per episode of infection was less with treatment in the ambulatory setting ( pound 1749.15) compared with the in-patient setting ( pound 11 400) or compared with the hypothetical situation of treatment with oral linezolid in the home setting ( pound 2546). Teicoplanin therapeutic drug monitoring appears to be valuable in establishing optimal serum levels, which appear to correlate with good clinical outcomes. The potential for alternative day or thrice weekly dosing with teicoplanin may offer further cost advantages whilst maintaining equivalent clinical effectiveness.  (+info)

Synthesis and characterization of hydroxyapatite-ciprofloxacin delivery systems by precipitation and spray drying technique. (8/59)

This investigation synthesized and characterized hydroxyapatite (HAP) microspheres, agglomerated microspheres, and implants containing ciprofloxacin. This delivery system is to be used as an implantable drug delivery system for the treatment of bone infections. The HAP microspheres were made by chemical precipitation followed by a spray-drying technique. Agglomerated microspheres were prepared by a wet granulation process using a granulator. Implants were prepared by direct compression of the granules on a Carver press. Ciprofloxacin was analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography. Characterization of the HAP microspheres include particle size, size distribution, physical state of the drug in the microsphere, and microstructure of the drug delivery system before and after in vitro release. The particle size, porosity, and morphology of the microspheres were dependent on viscosity and concentration of the slurry as well as the atomization pressure used during spray drying. Even at the highest drug load (2% wt/wt), the drug was present in a noncrystalline state. The drug release from the agglomerated microspheres was quick and almost complete within 1 hour. However, compressing the same amount of agglomerated microspheres into an implant greatly reduced the rate of ciprofloxacin release. Only 12% (wt/wt) of the drug was released from the implant within 1 hour. The in vitro release of ciprofloxacin from these implants follows a diffusion-controlled mechanism. This method provides a unique way of producing various shapes and drug loads of HAP microspheres that can be easily manufactured on a commercial scale.  (+info)

Staphylococcus caprae is a Gram-positive, coccus bacteria and a member of the genus Staphylococcus. S. caprae is coagulase-negative. It was originally isolated from goats (caprae means of a goat), but members of this species have also been isolated from human samples. S. caprae occurs as a commensal on human skin, but has also been implicated in infections of the bloodstream, urinary tract, bones, and joints. Because S. caprae is difficult to identify definitively in the laboratory, according to a study in 2014, the incidence of S. caprae in humans in under-reported. It is a coagulase-negative, DNase-positive member of the genus Staphylococcus. Usually it is associated with goats. Since 1991, a few laboratories reported that they had isolated the organism from human clinical specimens. It is now an emerging microorganism in joint and bone infections in humans. Staphylococcus was first described in 1983 by Devisee et al. based on a strain isolated from some goat milk. It can sometimes cause ...

A 14-year-old boy presented to another hospital with a clinical picture of septic arthritis. After aspiration of purulent material from the joint, empiric antibiotic treatment was initiated and an arthrotomy was performed. Antibiotic treatment was then modified to nafcillin according to microbiological sensitivity results of the isolated Staphylococcus aureus as determined by minimal inhibitory concentration testing. One week later purulent drainage recurred and open drainage had to be repeated; an abscess anterior to the joint was noted. Once again the infection failed to resolve, and the patient was transferred to our institution where a third arthrotomy had to be performed. The organism isolated at the first aspiration was reexamined and found to have a minimal bactericidal concentration to minimal inhibitory concentration ratio of 32, implying a tolerant organism. The antibiotic treatment was modified to an antibiotic not subject to the tolerance phenomenon, and the infection resolved without

More severe cases of osteomyelitis require more extreme treatment. They can require surgery to scrape the infection from the bone or remove any dead parts of the bone. Your doctor may recommend a skin graft to remove infected skin and replace it with healthy skin from another part of the body. Bone grafts are another option. In a worst-case scenario, doctors may need to amputate the affected limb.. Patients should be prepared for follow-up appointments with their doctor, who might order more lab work and imaging scans to check their progress.. If your immune system is compromised, a bone infection can recur. Its important to take every measure to prevent osteomyelitis in the first place. There are several precautions you can take:. ...
The Houston Zoos newest addition, a giraffe calf named Yao Ming, is battling a life-threatening bone infection, zoo officials said. The Massai calf, born on Feb. 25, underwent arthroscopic surgery this week to remove infected bone from his right shoulder, said zoo director Rick Barongi. When the limp gradually became worse, however, zoo veterinarians X-rayed the leg and found no evidence of bone damage, officials said. Winchell determined that Yao had developed a bone infection in his right shoulder and began an aggressive treatment regimen that included flushing the joint, removing the damaged tissue and infected bone, and administering stronger antibiotics.

Description: taphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is an independent risk factor for orthopaedic surgical site infection (SSI). To determine whether a preoperative decolonization protocol reduces S. aureus SSIs, we conducted a prospective observational study of patients undergoing elective total joint arthroplasty (TJA) at our institution, with two control groups. The concurrent control group comprised patients of surgeons who did not participate in the intervention study. The preintervention control group comprised patients of participating surgeons who had undergone elective TJA during the year before the study. Patients in the intervention group were screened preoperatively for S. aureus by nasal swab cultures. S. aureus carriers were decolonized with mupirocin ointment to the nares twice daily and chlorhexidine bath once daily for 5 days before surgery. All 164 of 636 participants (26%) who tested positive completed the decolonization protocol without adverse events and had no postoperative S. ...

Particles of a variety of orthopaedic materials have been implicated with bone resorption both in vivo and in vitro. The polymer investigated in this study is poly(L-lactide), a bioresorbable material which has been used in orthopaedics to manufacture screws and pins for fracture fixation. Poly(L-lactide) implants degrade and release particulate debris prior to their resorption. So far, the particles generated during the degradation of poly(L-lactide) implants have not been implicated with bone resorption in human clinical trials however, osteolysis in the vicinity of degrading resorbable implants made of a similar material known as poly(glycolide) has been observed radiographically. The biocompatibility of poly(L-lactide) particles was investigated using both in vitro and in vivo techniques in this project and the findings can be summarised as follows: 1. Exposure of fibroblasts to poly(L-lactide) particulates caused an increase in prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) release from intact viable cells ...
Part of the Manchester Tissue Regeneration & Stem Cell Network Seminar Series.. How mesenchymal stem cell fate is controlled by the cell/material interface is becoming better understood in terms of material chemistry, mechanical properties and topography. We have focused on the use of nanoscale topography to target MSC differentiation to bone with a view to design of new orthopaedic materials. However, we have also studied MSC growth without differentiation using nanotopography. This is important if we wish to expand large numbers of high quality autologous MSCs for clinical use. We have shown that control of adhesion and cytoskeletal tension is important in regulating growth through mitogen activated protein kinases and subtle alterations in cell cycle. From these observation we have gone on to develop dynamic growth platforms that allow first MSC expansion and then targeted differentiation on user demand and also to start to bioengineer 3D bioengineered MSC niches that could be useful in e.g. ...

Sepsis represents uncontrolled inflammation due to an infection. Cold-inducible RNA-binding protein (CIRP) is a stress-induced damage-associated molecular pattern (DAMP). A subset of neutrophils expressing ICAM-1+ neutrophils was previously shown to produce high levels of reactive oxygen species. The role of CIRP for the development and function of ICAM-1+ neutrophils during sepsis is unknown. We hypothesize that CIRP induces ICAM-1 expression in neutrophils causing injury to the lungs during sepsis. Using a mouse model of cecal ligation and puncture (CLP)-induced sepsis, we found increased expression of CIRP and higher frequencies and numbers of ICAM-1+ neutrophils in the lungs ...

Replied on 04/19/2011 First I would place an Elizabethan collar around your dogs neck so that he cannot reach the sore site. Is he using his leg normally and can he feel pain below the area that was injured? If he has lost pain perception in his leg or foot and the nerves are trying to regrow then he will have a constant tingling sensation (like when your foot falls asleep because you sit on it too long). He wont understand that feeling and he will lick until the sensation stops. This may take months to resolve. Because the wound is now down to his bone a bone infection is a huge concern. He definitely needs oral antibiotics and likely debridement surgery to clean the wound before the infection worsens and close it.. Its time to get him back to his veterinarian or seek a second opinion before this becomes an unsolvable problem.. ...
