Abstract:

There are currently no treatment methods on the market for modifying OA only drugs that help relieve pain and inflammation but do not address the underlying disease, allowing it to continue destroying joint tissues. When joint function becomes severely impaired and other management strategies are ineffective, arthroscopic or joint replacement surgeries become the only options for patients. More than 50 of people worldwide who are over 65 years of age show radiological evidence of OA.
