These cells, known as chondrocytes, are returned into the patient's defect area in a second surgical procedure.
MIA, a derivative of acetic acid, causes chondrocyte apoptosis by inhibiting glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase and is considered the most appropriate method for inducing OA changes4.
Reconstruction of alar nasal cartilage defects using a tissue engineering technique based on a combined use of autologous chondrocyte micro-grafts and platelet-rich plasma.
We did the culture in a 6 well's plate to observe the ability of the MSC to differentiate into a chondrocyte. To know the ability of the chondrocyte maintained it's viability capacity in a small container; we did the observation in a 96-wells-plate.
Using these agarose constructs, we confirmed that mechanical stress, both independent and/or in combination with verapamil, can increase chondrocyte AGC biosynthesis.
Chondrocyte and cartilage replacement represent potential new therapies for treatment of OA and a broad range of degenerative and debilitating diseases that could dramatically reduce the need for mechanical devices.
These changes included disarranged chondrocytes with degeneration or necrosis, ulcerations in the deep cartilage layer, and fibroplasia at the bottom of the ulcers (Figure 1a).
Subsequently, the constructs can be pre-cultured in vitro to stimulate chondrocyte differentiation before implantation.

The defect of the control group remained thin, presenting no chondrocyte proliferation around the perforation (Figure 3(a)).
