ADvanced nanocomposite MAterIals fOr in situ treatment and ultRAsound-mediated management of osteoarthritis

Project description

Slowing down the effects of osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA), a joint disease involving the degeneration of joint cartilage and underlying bone, is the most common cause of pain and disability in middle-aged people and the elderly. The goal of the EU-funded ADMAIORA project is to help people with OA lead a healthy and active lifestyle by slowing down or preventing the degeneration process. The consortium is developing biosynthetic hydrogels with piezoelectric nanoparticles responsive to remote wireless ultrasound stimulation. The hydrogels will contain stem cells with anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties, and they will be delivered in situ using an innovative handheld 3D bioprinter. Custom-designed ultrasound probes will enable monitoring of the joint status and stimulation of the implanted piezoelectric biomaterial, to enhance cartilage regeneration.
