Abstract [en]

Total joint arthroplasty is the primary intervention in the treatment of end-stage osteoarthritis. Despite the high success rate, in some patients, the replacement will fail during their lifetime requiring a revision of the implant. These revisions are strenuous for the patient and costly for health care. Joint replacement at a younger age, in combination with a more active lifestyle, increases the need for an early revision of the joint prosthesis. The main reason for revision surgeries is aseptic loosening, a condition where the prosthesis is loosening due to bone degradation at the peri-prosthetic interface in the absence of infections. The most well-established pathological mechanism for aseptic loosening is related to wear particles, generated from different parts of the prosthesis that will trigger bone degradation and bone loss. In addition, early micromotions of the prosthesis and resulting local pressurized fluid flow in the peri-prosthetic interface (supraphysiological loading) have also been identified as a cause for aseptic loosening. However, it remains unknown what cells are the primary responders to supraphysiological loading, and what underlying physical, cellular and molecular mechanism that triggers osteoclast differentiation and osteolysis.

In this thesis, we intended to shed light on three currently unknown aspects of mechanical loading-induced peri-prosthetic osteolysis, leading to aseptic loosening of orthopedic prostheses: (1)Which cells are the primary responder to supraphysiological loading? (2)What characteristics of the mechanical stimulus induce an osteo-protective or osteo-destructive response? (3)Which cellular mechano-sensing mechanisms are involved in an osteo-destructive response?

We successfully implemented supraphysiological mechanical loading, mimicking the periprosthetic pressurized fluid flow around a loosening implant, in an in vitro model for bone implant loosening. Using this model, we uncovered the involvement of mesenchymal stem cells and myeloid progenitor cells (monocytes) in mechanical loading-induced peri-prosthetic osteolysis. Applying supraphysiological loading on cells from patients undergoing primary hip arthroplasty, successfully validated the in vitro model for the use of cells of human origin. We further identified in murine myeloid progenitor cells that a combination of high loading amplitude (3.0±0.2Pa), prolonged active loading duration per cycle (duty cycle 22%-50%), and rapid alterations in minimum/maximum values of the loading profile (square wave) is necessary to induce an osteo-destructive response. Further, the loading-induced ATP release and subsequent activation of the P2X7 receptor was essential for the release of soluble factors modulating osteoclastogenesis.

In conclusion, we expect that the proposed new in vitro model is a helpful tool to further advance the knowledge in aseptic loosening, by uncovering the mechanoresponsive cellular mechanism to supraphysiological mechanical loading. The identification of the respondent cells in mechanical loading-induced prosthetic loosening gives the opportunity to deliver targeted treatment strategies. Furthermore, identifying the physical parameters that define the shift towards an osteo-destructive response emphasizes the importance of the prosthetic design and surgical technique to reduce mechanical loading-induced bone degradation around a prosthesis.

Abstract [en]

We aimed to develop an in vitro model for bone implant loosening, allowing analysis of biophysical and biological parameters contributing to mechanical instability-induced osteoclast differentiation and peri-implant bone loss. MLO-Y4-osteocytes were mechanically stimulated for 1h by fluid shear stress using regimes simulating: (i) supraphysiological loading in the peri-prosthetic interface (2.9 +/- 2.9Pa, 1Hz, square wave); (ii) physiologic loading in the cortical bone (0.7 +/- 0.7Pa, 5Hz, sinusoidal wave); and (iii) stress shielding. Cellular morphological parameters, membrane-bound RANKL expression, gene expression influencing osteoclast differentiation, nitric oxide release and caspase 3/7-activity were determined. Either Mouse bone marrow cells were cultured on top of loaded osteocytes or osteocyte-conditioned medium was added to bone marrow cells. Osteoclast differentiation was assessed after 6 days. We found that osteocytes subjected to supraphysiological loading showed similar morphology and caspase 3/7-activity compared to simulated physiological loading or stress shielding. Supraphysiological stimulation of osteocytes enhanced osteoclast differentiation by 1.9-fold compared to physiological loading when cell-to-cell contact was permitted. In addition, it enhanced the number of osteoclasts using conditioned medium by 1.7-fold, membrane-bound RANKL by 3.3-fold, and nitric oxide production by 3.2-fold. The stimulatory effect of supraphysiological loading on membrane-bound RANKL and nitric oxide production was higher than that achieved by stress shielding. In conclusion, the in vitro model developed recapitulated the catabolic biological situation in the peri-prosthetic interface during instability that is associated with osteoclast differentiation and enhanced RANKL expression. The model thus provides a platform for pre-clinical testing of pharmacological interventions with potential to stop instability-induced bone implant loosening. (c) 2017 Orthopaedic Research Society.

Abstract [en]

Mechanical instability of bone implants stimulate osteoclast differentiation and peri-implant bone loss, leading to prosthetic loosening. It is unclear which cells at the periprosthetic interface transduce mechanical signals into a biochemical response, and subsequently facilitate bone loss. We hypothesized that mechanical overloading of hematopoietic bone marrow progenitor cells, which are located near to the inserted bone implants, stimulates the release of osteoclast-inducing soluble factors. Using a novel in vitro model to apply mechanical overloading, we found that hematopoietic progenitor cells released adenosine triphosphate (ATP) after only 2min of mechanical loading. The released ATP interacts with its specific receptor P2X7 to stimulate the release of unknown soluble factors that inhibit (physiological loading) or promote (supraphysiological loading) the differentiation of multinucleated osteoclasts derived from bone marrow cultures. Inhibition of ATP-receptor P2X7 by Brilliant Blue G completely abolished the overloading-induced stimulation of osteoclast formation. Likewise, stimulation of P2X7 receptor on hematopoietic cells by BzATP enhanced the release of osteoclastogenesis-stimulating signaling molecules to a similar extent as supraphysiological loading. Supraphysiological loading affected neither gene expression of inflammatory markers involved in aseptic implant loosening (e.g., interleukin-1 (IL-1), IL-6, tumor necrosis factor-, and PTGES2) nor expression of the osteoclast modulators receptor activator of nuclear factor -B ligandand osteoprotegerin. Our findings suggest that murine hematopoietic progenitor cells are a potential key player in local mechanical loading-induced bone implant loosening via the ATP/P2X7-axis. Our approach identifies potential therapeutic targets to prevent prosthetic loosening.
