Animal models that help translate regenerative therapies from bench to bedside
Date:2/11/2010

ptimize the safety and effectiveness of engineered tissues ready for testing in clinical trials.

Focusing on the challenges of applying regenerative medicine technologies to the surgical repair of torn rotator cuffs, Kathleen Derwin, PhD, and coworkers from the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio identified appropriate animal models for research, development, and testing of repair strategies. In their paper, "Preclinical Models for Translating Regenerative Medicine Therapies for Rotator Cuff Repair," they emphasize the need for discriminating preclinical models in which researchers can experiment with the materials and procedures that will ultimately be used to treat human patients.

Damage and degeneration of cartilage is a leading cause of pain and disability associated with the development of osteoarthritis. In their review article "Animal Models for Cartilage Regeneration and Repair," Michal Szczodry, MD, Stephen Bruno, and Constance Chu, MD, from the University of Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania), emphasize the value of animal studies to understand the disease process underlying joint degeneration and to develop effective treatments for cartilage injuries.

"The workshop and manuscripts they produced provide an excellent summary of the tools we have available to translate new technologies forward, toward clinical studies. They also identify the critical gaps in our current knowledge," says Anthony Ratcliffe, PhD, President and CEO of Synthasome, Inc., and a guest editor of this special issue.
