Bone marrow aspirate concentrate (bmac)
Single- Versus Multiple-Site Harvesting Techniques for Bone Marrow Concentrate
Bone marrow concentrate (BMC) is growing in popularity as an alternative treatment option in orthopaedics. The
regenerative capacity of BMC has been linked to the number of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) present in the graft at the time of
its clinical application. MSC counts in bone marrow aspirate (BMA) are affected by harvest technique, but controversy exists over
which aspiration method optimizes cellular yield while taking patient comfort and risk into consideration.
Effectiveness of a single intraarticular bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) injection in patients with grade 3 and 4 knee osteoarthritis
This study is to evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of an intra-articular injection of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) as a treatment option for osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee.
Characterization of Growth Factors, Cytokines, and Chemokines in Bone Marrow Concentrate and Platelet-Rich Plasma
This study is to prospectively measure and compare anabolic, anti-inflammatory, and proinflammatory growth factors, cytokines,
and chemokines in bone marrow aspirate (BMA), BMC, whole blood, leukocyte-poor PRP (LP-PRP), and leukocyte-rich PRP
(LR-PRP) from samples collected and processed concurrently on the same day from patients presenting for elective knee surgery.
