Gene Therapy | Joint Restoration | Osteoarthritis Research

The Steadman Philippon Research Institute 2004 Annual Report
The area of regenerative medicine is an excit- ing one. There are many new and innovative techniques under investigation by scientists around the world. In 2004 we focused our efforts almost exclusively on regeneration of an improved tissue for resurfacing of articular cartilage (chondral) defects that typically lead to degenerative osteoarthritis. We have been working in the promising area of gene therapy in collaboration with Drs. Wayne McIlwraith and David Frisbie at Colorado State University. The following provides some background information and a summary of our most recent findings. This work is ongoing, and the encouraging results presented here will allow us to continue to focus on this work in the coming years.
Osteoarthritis is a debilitating, progres- sive disease characterized by the deterioration of articular cartilage and accompanied by changes in the bone and soft tissues of the joint. Traumatic injury to joints is also often associated with acute damage to the articular cartilage. Unfortunately, joint cartilage is a tissue with very poor healing potential. Once damaged, cartilage typically does not heal, or it may heal with fibrous tissue that serves no purpose. This tissue does not possess the
properties of the original cartilage, so the integrity of the articular surface and normal joint function are compromised. The result is often osteoarthritis.

  4. 4. The Year in ReviewDear Friends:In this 2004 Annual Report you will read about the work and achievements of our dedicated staff. Youwill learn of the discoveries of Dr.William G. Rodkey, Director of Basic Science Research and a leadingcontributor to the universal success of microfracture, a procedure to grow repair cartilage. In 2004,Dr. Rodkey’s Basic Science Research team continued to work on improving microfracture and cartilagehealing. For the first time, they were able to demonstrate that an experimental model of cartilagehealing using gene therapy can be used to successfully enhance the growth and repair of cartilage. In the Clinical Research Department, Karen Briggs, M.P.H., M.B.A., has maintained the largest database of surgical details and outcomesin the world, with comprehensive records of more than 12,000 knee and nearly 3,000 shoulder surgeries. The information stored in thedatabase has been the source for numerous peer-reviewed publications written by the Foundation. More importantly, the work of Ms. Briggshas allowed researchers to identify risk factors for arthritis and has led to significant discoveries that will help prevent this leading cause ofdisability worldwide. Dr. Michael R. Torry and his team in the Biomechanics Research Laboratory are successfully mapping joints and creating three-dimensional models that mimic natural movements and pressures. Using computer technology, they are determining how muscles, tendons, andligaments are stressed during various activities. Knowing how and why injury and disease occur can be the first step in successful preventionand treatment. Though still in its infancy, three-dimensional modeling is giving physicians and researchers incredible views and increasedunderstanding of why less-invasive surgical treatments are effective in restoring normal load bearing in joints. This understanding will allowphysicians to select procedures that are most appropriate for the individual patient. The development of a virtual shoulder model has been atop priority for the laboratory and in 2004 the work continued to scientifically validate the model. Once in use, this technology will help usunderstand how the shoulder moves and which muscles and ligaments are involved. Academic medicine continues to take notice of our research. The number of publications in medical journals is a primary considerationin assessing the strength of an academic department or organization. The three major medical journals in orthopaedic sports medicine arethe Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, the American Journal of Sports Medicine, and Arthroscopy. The Foundation tracked its number ofpublications in these journals from 2002 to 2004 and compared the results to four other top academic programs. The Steadman◆HawkinsResearch Foundation ranked first in number of publications in these three journals. This is important to us because we want to be sure thatour research findings are disseminated to the broader world of orthopaedics for the benefit of mankind. But publications would be just basicresearch reports without practical application. In this report you will meet Al Perkins and learn of his 25-year journey to remain active sohe could continue to participate in his son’s activities. His search allowed him to benefit from the Foundation’s development of jointpreservation techniques. For 16 years, we’ve helped people such as Al perform at their highest level possible, but the name “Sports Medicine” implies that weonly treat athletes. In reality, our research has benefited people from all walks of life. And thanks to our many donors and supporters, theFoundation is a world leader in orthopaedic research. Because of this, we changed our name to the Steadman◆Hawkins Research Foundation. 2
  5. 5. We’re giving credit where credit is due. This Foundation was created for thepurpose of keeping people active for life—elite athletes, weekend warriors, highschool heroes, mid-lifers, and even those of us who hung up our skis, cleats, andbaseball gloves many years ago. We all benefit from the work of the Steadman◆Hawkins Research Foundation, and the Foundation benefits tremendously fromyou. Since 1990, the Foundation has spent $25 million on research, education, andsupport programs. We could not have done this without the commitment, dollars,and concerns of many individuals. The desire of each of us to lead a full, active life has been the driving forcefor the groundbreaking treatment protocols pioneered by the Foundation and itsunique philosophy of treating and helping prevent degenerative arthritis. Becausewe believe that the body’s own tissue is the optimum restorative medium, we’refocused on how the body heals itself and on developing leading-edge research andtreatment techniques to harness and accelerate that ability. But our commitment does not end here. We’re also dedicated to sharingwhat we learn through our world-renowned Fellowship Program, thousands ofscientific research papers and presentations, and a clinical database. Of course,there’s a great deal more to be done and we need continued support to do it. Our core values haven’t changed, and our dedication will never waiver. It’san exciting time at the Steadman◆Hawkins Research Foundation—one we hope toshare with you.Sincerely yours,J.
