Dr Franchesca Houghton, University of Southampton
Osteoarthritis (OA) affects around 8. 5million people in the UK, and is due to damage to the cartilage covering joints, which leads to inflammation, pain and destruction of the joint. In severe conditions, joint replacement is the final treatment option; however, surgery is not always successful, highlighting the need for alternative treatment strategies. One possible treatment option is to develop new cartilage from human stem cells. Harvesting stem cells from the bone marrow of adults with OA is painful and limited by the few cells that can be collected as well as the inferior quality of the cartilage grown from these cells. Therefore, it is important to develop an alternative source of stem cells. In this study, Dr Houghton's team are investigating human embryonic stem cells derived from the amniotic fluid.
