Immune and stem cell compartments of acetabular and femoral bone marrow in hip osteoarthritis patients

Hip osteoarthritis (OA) affects all components of the osteochondral unit, leading to bone marrow (BM) lesions, and unknown consequences on BM cell functionality. We analyzed the cellular composition in OA-affected acetabula compared to proximal femur shafts obtained of hip OA patients to reveal yet not explored immune and stem cell compartments.
