附註 Introduction -- Biomechanics of Joint Synovia -- Brief Review of Liquid Crystals -- Modern Concepts of Friction and Lubrication of Solids -- Modern Concepts of Friction, Wear and Lubrication of Joints -- Effect of Liquid Crystals on Biological Mechanisms of Reducing Joint Friction -- Liquid Crystals as Effective Preparations for Treatment of Joint and Similar Pathologies -- Conclusions
This book summarizes the theoretical and experimental studies confirming the concept of the liquid-crystalline nature of boundary lubrication in synovial joints. It is shown that cholesteric liquid crystals in the synovial liquid play a significant role in the mechanism of intra-articular friction reduction. The results of structural, rheological and tribological research of the creation of artificial synovial liquids - containing cholesteric liquid crystals in natural synovial liquids - are described. These liquid crystals reproduce the lubrication properties of natural synovia and provide a high chondroprotective efficiency. They were tested in osteoarthritis models and in clinical practice
