Advances in the Development of Gene Therapy, Noncoding RNA, and Exosome‐Based Treatments for Tendinopathy

The authors summarize the current understanding and treatments for tendinopathy. They also highlight recent advances in gene therapy, the potential of noncoding RNAs, such as microRNAs, and exosomes, which are nanometer‐sized extracellular vesicles secreted from cells, for the treatment of tendinopathy.

The Role of B Cells in Heart Failure and Implications for Future Immunomodulatory Treatment Strategies

B cells produce antibodies that interfere with cardiomyocyte function, which culminates as the result of recruitment and activation of a variety of innate and structural cell populations, including neutrophils, macrophages, fibroblasts, and T cells.

Innervation: The Missing Link for Biofabricated Tissues and Organs

The authors assert that innervation should be included as a necessary component for tissue and organ biofabrication, and that strategies to orchestrate host axonal integration are advantageous to ensure proper function, tolerance, assimilation, and bio-regulation with the recipient post-implant.
