Innate immunity in orthopedics - a cornerstone for therapeutic advances
Date and Time-
Innate immune cells are keepers of homeostasis in all musculoskeletal tissues. Upon sensing damage, macrophages coat injuries, driving tissue repair and inflammation resolution. Failed repair of musculoskeletal tissues, and thus failed inflammation resolution, lead to chronic inflammation and further tissue degeneration. Therefore, precise understanding of the biology of macrophages in musculoskeletal tissues during health, disease and recovery of homeostasis is paramount for the development of effective therapies.
