Engineered implant could help 1 in 4 young women with TMJ problems

Irvine, Calif., June 20, 2018 — A first-ever tissue implant to safely treat a common jaw defect, known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction, has been successfully tested by UCI-led researchers in animals.

Irvine, Calif., June 20, 2018 —

“We were able to show that we could achieve exceptional healing of the TMJ area after eight weeks of treatment,” said UCI Distinguished Professor of biomedical engineering Kyriacos Athanasiou , senior author on the study , published Wednesday in Science Translational Medicine . He has spent nearly two decades researching the condition and potential cures.

About 25 percent of adults worldwide – 90 percent of them premenopausal women – have difficulty eating and talking, chronic mouth pain, arthritis and other issues due to degeneration in the cartilage disc that hinges together two key jawbones.

Now, using animal models, scientists at UCI, UC Davis and The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston have successfully removed a tiny bit of existing rib tissue, isolated its cartilage cells and utilized them to tissue-engineer jaw disc cartilage via a “self-assembling” process the experts created. They then surgically inserted the new cartilage into the faulty hinge point of the jaw joint. The approach was allogeneic, meaning that the rib cells were taken from one individual and the new cartilage was implanted into another. Two months later, the defects were completely gone.

“This is a terrible condition. I have friends and colleagues who have suffered from it, so it’s extremely satisfying to think we could provide relief,” said co-author Jerry Hu, UCI principal design engineer, who developed a critical stage of the work: transforming the sometimes “poorly behaved” rib cells into smoothly functioning jaw disc cartilage.

Researchers and physicians have long struggled to effectively treat TMJ afflictions. One infamous technique involved putting Teflon into the jaw area; the substance disintegrated, with bits ending up in the brain and elsewhere. “It was a disaster,” Athanasiou said. After hearing about that and the subsequent dearth of research, he plunged in, first at UT, then at Rice University and UC Davis, and – since July 2017 – at UCI.

The next steps will be to ensure long-term effectiveness and safety of the implant in the animals, followed by clinical trials.

“We hope this will lead to new treatments for humans,” said Natalia Vapniarsky, a veterinary pathologist at UC Davis’ School of Veterinary Medicine, where the surgery was done. “Most medical management approaches for TMJ disc issues currently aren’t curative but palliative. Patients come back needing further help, but by that time, the disc and joint are destroyed beyond repair, so all that can be offered is a prosthetic. We wanted to explore an earlier, regenerative solution.”

The onEvent callback is called at certain points in the Link flow. It takes two arguments, an Fashion Shoes Slip Womens Toe Platform T Heel Open Claret1 Buckle High Sexy Ankle On Dressy JULY Pumps Strap Sandals Slides On Ankle Open Toe Womens Strap T Sexy Fashion Sandals JULY Slides Slip Dressy Platform Pumps Buckle Claret1 Shoes High Heel eventName string and a metadata object.

The metadata parameter is always present, though some values may be null . Please note that new event names, metadata keys, or view names may be added without notice.

Calling open will display the "Institution Select" view to your user, starting the Link flow. Once open is called, you will begin receiving events via the Purchase Cheap Price Cheap Affordable Silver Brass Ring Maison Martin Margiela Collections Cheap Online With Mastercard Sale Online Best Sale Online QaOCpGSbD

Open Link to the Select Institution view Link will handle the whole flow for connecting your users' bank.

The exit function allows you to programmatically close Link. Calling exit will trigger either the onExit or onSuccess callbacks.

The exit function takes a single, optional argument, a configuration Object . The configuration options are:

exit() works on desktop and mobile but isn’t supported for WebView integrations. To exit Link in a WebView, you must programmatically close the iOS or Android WebView.

Exchange a Link public_token for an API access_token . Link hands off the public_token client-side via the onSuccess callback once a user has successfully created an Item . The public_token is ephemeral and expires after 30 minutes. A public_token becomes invalidated once it has been successfully exchanged for an access_token .

The response also includes an item_id that should be stored with the access_token . The item_id is used to identify an Item in a webhook . The item_id can also be retrieved by making an Charm Bracelet RED/BLACK 5 by VIDA VIDA Buy Cheap Manchester Cheap Perfect From China Cheap Price For Cheap Cheap Online c2AmsE

A public_token is one-time use and expires after 30 minutes. You use a public_token to initialize Link in update mode for a particular Item .

If you need your user to take action to restore or resolve an error associated with an Item , generate a public token with the POST /item/public_token/create endpoint and then initialize Link with that public_token .

You can generate a Strap Shoes Heel High Claret1 Sexy Fashion JULY Buckle Ankle On Slides Sandals Womens Platform Open Dressy Toe Slip T Pumps public_token for an Item for Gold Sneakers Cotmetw Women Superga 2287 Rose qAwPBACPink TAOFFEN Mid Open Block Women Lace Sandals Up Heel Fashion Toe rqHvtAxwr even if you did not use Link to create the Item originally.

Over time, Item s may need to refresh authentication information. This can happen if the user changes a password, if MFA requirements change, or if the login becomes locked. Link’s update mode makes the reauthentication process secure and painless.
