    • Changes in serum and synovial fluid biomarkers after acute injury (NCT00332254). 

      Catterall, Jonathan B; Stabler, Thomas V; Flannery, Carl R; Kraus, Virginia B (Arthritis Res Ther, 2010)
      INTRODUCTION: Acute trauma involving the anterior cruciate ligament is believed to be a major risk factor for the development of post-traumatic osteoarthritis 10 to 20 years post-injury. In this study, to better understand ...
    • Elucidating the Molecular Composition of Cartilage by Proteomics. 

      Hsueh, Ming-Feng; Khabut, Areej; Kjellström, Sven; Önnerfjord, Patrik; Kraus, Virginia Byers (J Proteome Res, 2016-02-05)
      Articular cartilage consists of chondrocytes and two major components, a collagen-rich framework and highly abundant proteoglycans. Most prior studies defining the zonal distribution of cartilage have extracted proteins ...
    • Loss of cartilage structure, stiffness, and frictional properties in mice lacking PRG4. 

      Coles, Jeffrey M; Zhang, Ling; Blum, Jason J; Warman, Matthew L; Jay, Gregory D; Guilak, Farshid; Zauscher, Stefan (Arthritis Rheum, 2010-06)
      OBJECTIVE: To assess the role of the glycoprotein PRG4 in joint lubrication and chondroprotection by measuring friction, stiffness, surface topography, and subsurface histology of the hip joints of Prg4(-/-) and wild-type ...
    • Mechanobiology of the meniscus. 

      McNulty, Amy L; Guilak, Farshid (J Biomech, 2015-06-01)
      The meniscus plays a critical biomechanical role in the knee, providing load support, joint stability, and congruity. Importantly, growing evidence indicates that the mechanobiologic response of meniscal cells plays a critical ...
    • Type III TGF-β receptor downregulation generates an immunotolerant tumor microenvironment. 

      Hanks, Brent A; Holtzhausen, Alisha; Evans, Katherine S; Jamieson, Rebekah; Gimpel, Petra; Campbell, Olivia M; Hector-Greene, Melissa; ... (20 authors) (J Clin Invest, 2013-09)
      Cancers subvert the host immune system to facilitate disease progression. These evolved immunosuppressive mechanisms are also implicated in circumventing immunotherapeutic strategies. Emerging data indicate that ...
