MMPs and ADAMTSs in Intervertebral Disc Degeneration|
After a brief description regarding the biology of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and ADAMTSs, the authors mainly focus on their expression profiles, roles and therapeutic potential in intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD). A greater understanding of the catabolic pathways involved in IDD will help to develop potential prophylactic or regenerative biological treatment for degenerative disc disease in the future.
