Steadman Philippon Research Institute 2003 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 2003, we focused our
efforts almost exclusively on regeneration of an
improved tissue for resurfacing of articular
cartilage defects that typically lead to degenera-
tive osteoarthritis. We have been working in
the promising area of gene therapy in collabo-
ration with Drs. Wayne McIlwraith and David
Frisbie at Colorado State University. Following is
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, progressive 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 carti- lage. Unfortunately, joint cartilage is a tissue with poor healing poten- tial. Once damaged, cartilage typically does not heal, or it may heal with fibrous tissue that does not function as it should. Such tissue does not possess the biomechanical and biochemical properties of the original hyaline cartilage; hence, the integrity of the articular sur- face and normal joint function are compromised. The result often is osteoarthritis.

Kelly, who donated many of the stock photos in this year’s Annual Report and contributed his time to photograph the many Foundation and operating room subjects. Kelly is a renowned sports and stock photographer who approaches every photo shoot like a commando. His sense of motion combines with his obvious love of natural light to produce vibrant graphic images. He shoots extensively for a variety of prominent manufacturers in the sports and recreation industry; and his experience includes numerous assignments at the Olympics, Wimbledon, U.S. Open Golf, and World Cup Skiing. When Robert Redford needed a poster that reflected the spirit of his movie “A River Runs Through It,” he called Kelly. More recently, Redford employed Kelly’s photographic talents during the making of the “Horse Whisperer.” Whether covering the Olympics or trekking in the Himalayas, Kelly is always ready for his next photographic adventure.
  3. 3. The Year in ReviewDEAR FRIENDS:In 2003, we celebrated the 15th anniversary of the Steadman◆Hawkins SportsMedicine Foundation! It is hard to believe that 15 years have passed. During this period,new surgical procedures and non-operative treatments to combat arthritis have beenpioneered and developed. Our Fellowship Program has trained a new generation oforthopaedic surgeons who are now practicing throughout the world. We are indebtedto the many individual and corporate supporters who have made these achievementspossible. Since our founding in 1988, 2,100 individuals, foundations, and corporatesponsors have made more than 7,200 gifts to the Foundation. In this Annual Report,you will read about some of the noteworthy achievements and the progress we aremaking every day. For example, microfracture, pioneered and developed by the Foundation, isnow accepted as a treatment that may make it possible to postpone or even eliminatethe need for knee replacement surgery. Just ten years ago, only a small percentage of the world’s orthopaedic surgeons performed microfrac- 1ture. Today, it is the treatment of choice among surgeons all over the world to relieve pain and slow the progression of arthritis in the knee. Once again employing the body’s own recuperative power, the Healing Response technique was another product of the Foundation’sresearch and development environment. This alternative to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in the knee provides treatment forcertain types of ACL injuries. 5 The shoulder presents another area where injuries often lead to arthritis. In this complex joint, our researchers have been improvingarthroscopic techniques that are far less invasive than open surgical procedures. Increasing in size every year, the clinical research database developed by the Foundation offers researchers access to information onthousands of cases on injured or arthritic joints. Numerous peer-reviewed publications based on the information stored here have been pro-duced by the Foundation. One of the many applications of the patient database was its use by researchers to identify risk factors that lead toarthritis. Our biomechanics research group has become a leader in the development of computer modeling technology. Being able to see howa moving joint’s different components interact is immensely valuable to doctors and therapists. Armed with this information, they can designtherapies uniquely suited to each injured or diseased joint. To reach professionals who are unable to come to us, Foundation scientists and physicians have reported their research worldwidethrough peer-reviewed publications and presentations. During the past decade and a half, we have produced more than 400 papers, 1,000presentations, and 60 teaching videos—many award winning—that have been accepted by medical and scientific journals and organizationsworldwide. In fulfillment of our mission to educate and disseminate the results of our research, the Foundation in 2003 hosted the webcastOvercoming the Challenge of Degenerative Joint Disease: Innovative Surgical and Pain Management Techniques. The four-hour round-table discussion sponsored by Pfizer was made available to orthopaedic surgeons throughout the world on the World Wide Web for continuingmedical education credit. As evidence that the quality of our research has attained a level of excellence recognized throughout the medical and scientificcommunity, the prestigious American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons selected the poster presentation Factors Associated with Disabilityand Activity in Patients Seeking Care for Osteoarthritis as one of 12 award winners. The Foundation owes a special thanks to our staff, scientists, and physicians. They dedicate their time and effort to conduct researchthat is meeting the highest and most rigorous standards of excellence and educational programs that will help all of us lead healthy and activelives for years to come. As we look forward to the future, the legacy of the Steadman◆Hawkins Sports Medicine Foundation is constantly expanding as we con-tinue to develop innovative treatments to heal the body. The Foundation has already set definitive goals that, when reached in the comingdecades, will restore quality, activity, and health to countless lives. Sincerely yours, J. Richard Steadman, M.D. Richard J. Hawkins, M.D. Chairman of the Board Vice President 1
  4. 4. MissionTHE STEADMAN◆HAWKINS SPORTS MEDICINE FOUNDATION IS DEDICATED TO KEEPING PEOPLEOF ALL AGES PHYSICALLY ACTIVE THROUGH ORTHOPAEDIC RESEARCH AND EDUCATION IN THE AREAS OF ARTHRITIS, HEALING, REHABILITATION, AND INJURY PREVENTION. HISTORYFounded in 1988 by orthopaedic surgeon Dr. J. Richard Steadman, the Foundation is an independent, tax-exempt (IRS code 501(c)(3)) charita-ble organization. Known throughout the world for its research into the causes, prevention, and treatment of orthopaedic disorders, theSteadman◆Hawkins Sports Medicine Foundation is committed to solving orthopaedic problems that limit an individual’s ability to maintain an activelife. In 1990, he was joined by renowned shoulder surgeon Dr. Richard J. Hawkins. Together, they brought the Foundation’s research productionin knee and shoulder studies to a new level.The Foundation has influenced the practice of orthopaedics—from diagnosis to rehabilitation. Recognizing that the body’s innate healing powerscan be harnessed and manipulated to improve the healing process has led to exciting advances in surgical techniques that are used today byorthopaedists in many practices. The microfracture technique, for example, is now accepted as a treatment that may make it possible to postponeor even eliminate the need for knee replacement surgery.One of the largest independent orthopaedic research institutes in the world, the Steadman◆Hawkins Sports Medicine Foundation has become oneof the most productive and innovative foundations in orthopaedic research and education.Philanthropic gifts are used to advance scientific research and to support scholarly academic programs that train physicians for the future. Throughits Fellowship program, the Foundation has now built a network of 130 Fellows and associates worldwide who share the advanced ideas and com-municate the concepts they learned in Vail. THE FOUNDATION’S PRIMARY AREAS OF RESEARCH AND EDUCATION ARE:◆ Basic Science Research – Undertakes studies to investigate the ◆ Biomechanics Research Laboratory – Performs knee and shoulder mysteries of degenerative arthritis, cartilage regeneration, and computer modeling and related studies in an effort to reduce the arthritic changes in the knee and shoulder. need for surgical repair. ◆ Education and Fellowship Program – Administers and coordinates◆ Clinical Research – Conducts “process” and “outcomes” research the physicians-in-residence fellowship program, hosts in orthopaedic sports medicine that aids both physicians and conferences and international medical meetings, and produces patients in making better-informed treatment decisions. and distributes publications and videotapes. SINCE ITS INCEPTION, THE FOUNDATION HAS HELPED PEOPLE OF ALL AGES REMAIN PHYSICALLY ACTIVE THROUGH ORTHOPAEDIC RESEARCH AND EDUCATION. IT CONTINUES TO PURSUE ITS GOALS OF:◆ Understanding and enlisting the body’s innate ability to heal. ◆ Producing and publishing scientifically validated research in◆ Designing and validating surgical and rehabilitation techniques, leading medical and scientific journals. as well as non-operative treatments for arthritis. 2

IN 2003, WE RECEIVED $1 MILLION IN CORPORATE SUPPORT TO HELP FUND THE FOUNDATION’S RESEARCH AND EDUCATION PROGRAMS IN VAIL, COLORADO, AND AT SIX UNIVERSITY SITES. THIS WORK WILL BENEFIT PATIENTS AND PHYSICIANS FOR GENERATIONS TO COME. ◆ EBI Medical Systems ◆ Genzyme Biosurgery/Wyeth ◆ Innovation Sports ◆ Ormed, GmbH & Co. KG ◆ Peak Performance Technologies, Inc. ◆ Pfizer, Inc. ◆ Smith & Nephew Endoscopy ◆ Center Pulse ◆ HealthOne Alliance ◆ Vail Resorts, Inc. ◆ Vail Valley Medical Center GENZYME BIOSURGERY/WYETH NEW CORPORATE SPONSORS TO THE STEADMAN◆HAWKINS SPORTS MEDICINE FOUNDATIONGenzyme Biosurgery and Wyeth joined forces in 2003 to become corporate sponsors of the Steadman◆Hawkins Sports MedicineFoundation. Genzyme Biosurgery is a division of Genzyme Corporation and a leading business in the rapidly emerging market for sophisti-cated biotechnology products. Wyeth is one of the world’s largest research-driven pharmaceutical and health care products companies.It is considered a leader in the discovery, development, manufacturing, and marketing of pharmaceuticals, vaccines, biotechnologyproducts, and nonprescription medicines that improve the quality of life for people worldwide. “We are excited about the relationship between Wyeth and the Foundation with regard to our mutual involvement with such beneficialactivities as the annual Fellows Conference, a Public Education Speaker Series, and the shared goal of providing beneficial health carethrough research and education,” said John Johlfs, Wyeth Musculoskeletal Specialty District Manager. “Being involved with continuingefforts investigating the causes, prevention, and medical intervention of osteoarthritis is a worthy and lofty goal in which we are veryproud to be a part.” Genzyme Biosurgery has two products on the market that provide solutions for treating damaged knee joints. They are Synvisc-(hylan G-F 20) and Carticel (autologous cultured chondrocytes). These products have made a significant contribution to clinicalorthopaedics. Synvisc is a biomaterial used in the treatment of pain caused by osteoarthritis of the knee. Carticel uses a patient’s owncartilage cells to treat knee cartilage defects. 13
  16. 16. Basic Science Research: Understanding Joint Disease THE PURPOSE OF OUR BASIC SCIENCE RESEARCH IS TO GAIN A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF FACTORS THAT LEAD TO DEGENERATIVE JOINT DISEASE AND OSTEOARTHRITIS. OUR FOCUS IS TO DEVELOP NEW SURGICAL TECHNIQUES, INNOVATIVE THERAPIES, REHABILITATIVE TREATMENTS, AND RELATED PRO- GRAMS THAT WILL EITHER HELP PREVENT THE DEVELOPMENT OF DEGENERATIVE JOINT DISEASE OR LESSEN ITS EFFECTS. IN 2003, WE COLLABORATED WITH COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY AND OTHER EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS. WE BELIEVE THAT OUR COMBINED EFFORTS WILL LEAD DIRECTLY TO SLOWING THE DEGENERATIVE PROCESSES, AS WELL AS FINDING NEW WAYS TO ENHANCE REGENERATION OF INJURED TISSUES. William G.

However, we concluded that gene therapy increased the amount of protein present in the repair tissue of the treated joints as well as in non-treated joints. We speculate that the growth-enhancing properties were able to increase the development of protein-like substances by the cells present in the repair tissue. The effect on the composition outside the cells might also have been due to its effect on cell growth and the development of different kinds of cells. By increasing cellular production and facilitating development of cells recruited into the defective area from the bone marrow, insulin-like growth factor might have increased the number of cells capable of producing proteins. This study confirmed that it is possible to use gene therapy to enhance healing of cartilage defects. The use of the combined carriers of antagonist protein and insulin-like growth factor was associated with an increased production of substances needed for repair. This was a critically significant finding. Improving the quality of the repair tissue is an essential step in cartilage resurfacing. Going forward with this new and promising information, our challenge in future studies is to further increase protein production and to obtain repair tissue that most closely resembles normal cartilage in the way it is composed and in the way it functions. 15
