Controlled Local Delivery of Glucosamine (GlcN) for Musculoskeletal Repair

The novel feature of this discovery is the application of GlcN to joint and spine (cartilage) tissue engineering/repair. Because of this discovery of the relevant concentrations one can envision new therapies such as: 1.) injection into the joint space of GlcN in drug delivery vehicles after microfracture 2.) implantation of a scaffold releasing GlcN at the appropriate rate into a defect space 3.) incorpation of GlcN into a tissue glue to enhance repair
