Osteoarthritis Progress Detection
A Method for Osteoarthritis Progress Detection Based on CD163 Marker and ELISA
Dr. Keykhosro Mardanpour, a professor of Orthopedic surgery, a hand surgeon, and a neurovascular micro-surgeon, has been in the industry of Orthopedic surgery since 2001. He went to medical school at Tehran University of Medical Science and got his fellowship as a hand micro−surgeon at Kentucky University, Kelinert hand center, Kentucky, Louisville, USA.
Due to his interest and expertise in the field of orthopedics, he decided to make an improvement and innovations so that he can advance the field in which he works.
This invention generally relates to osteoarthritis progress detection and, more particularly, to a method based on using CD-163 marker and ELISA method.
As you may know, osteoarthritis is the degeneration of joint cartilage and the underlying bone, most common from middle age onward. It causes pain and stiffness, especially in the hip, knee, and thumb joints.
As mentioned before, ELISA is one of the best methods for measuring the levels of substances in spinal fluid. Accordingly, plasma and synovial fluid levels in early osteoarthritis reflect their importance in disease progression and joint destruction.
Therefore, after many considerations, studying, and running tests in two different hospitals, this team came up with a detection method for the progress detection of osteoarthritis.
