Abstract

Like the mythical eagle devouring Prometheus’s liver as fast as it regrew, chronic inflammation hinders cartilage regeneration in inflammatory arthritis. Using stem cells engineered to secrete anti-inflammatory molecules in response to local inflammatory factors could provide a way to keep the eagle at bay as the stem cells differentiate into chondrocytes.
