Research progress on the intervertebral disc degeneration model
The incidence of intervertebral disc degeneration disease is growing higher, but the degeneration of the mechanism is still unclear. Intervertebral disc degeneration model is the main way to study intervertebral disc degeneration disease at present. The disc degeneration model is mainly divided into two types: in vivo model and in vitro model. Two kinds of degeneration models study the pathophysiological process of intervertebral disc degeneration in different angles. The models play an important role in revealing the degeneration mechanism, preventing and treating intervertebral disc degeneration. This review tries to summarize the status and progress of disc degeneration models in China and abroad.
