Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine whether macrophage depletion using clodronate liposomes diminishes wear-debris-induced inflammatory osteolysis in a murine osteolysis model. Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) particles were introduced into established air pouches on BALB/c mice, followed by implantation of calvaria bone from syngeneic littermates. Macrophages were depleted by the intraperitoneal injection of clodronate liposome (2 mg) 2 days before bone implantation and re-injection every 3 days (1 mg) until the sacrifice of the mice. Mice without clodronate liposome therapy or treated with empty liposome as well as mice injected with saline alone were included in this study as controls. Pouch tissues were collected 14 days after bone implantation for molecular and histology analysis. Our findings indicated that (1) macrophage depletion in clodronate-liposome-treated mice was achieved, as illustrated by F4/80 immunostaining in both pouch and spleen tissues; (2) clodronate-liposome treatment significantly reduced UHMWPE-induced tissue inflammation, with diminished pouch membrane thickness, reduced inflammatory cellular infiltration, and lowered interleukin 1beta (IL-1beta) and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha) expression; (3) clodronate-liposome treatment markedly reduced the number of TRAP(+) cells in pouch tissues and protected against bone collagen depletion. In conclusion, this study demonstrates that macrophage depletion using clodronate-liposome reduces UHMWPE particle-induced inflammatory osteolysis. This observation supports the hypothesis that macrophages contribute to the severity of UHMWPE particles induced inflammatory osteolysis, and suggest that macrophage depletion represents a viable therapeutic approach to the prevention and treatment of patients with aseptic loosening.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
