Trajectories of femorotibial cartilage thickness among persons with or at risk of knee osteoarthritis: Development of a prediction model to identify progressors.

There is significant variability in the trajectory of structural progression across people with knee osteoarthritis (OA). We aimed to identify distinct trajectories of femorotibial cartilage thickness over 2 years and develop a prediction model to identify individuals experiencing progressive cartilage loss.

Influence of the severity of knee osteoarthritis on the association between leg muscle mass and quadriceps strength: the SPSS-OK study.

Inhibition of miR-449a Promotes Cartilage Regeneration and Prevents Progression of Osteoarthritis in In Vivo Rat Models.

Traumatic and degenerative lesions of articular cartilage usually progress to osteoarthritis (OA), a leading cause of disability in humans. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) can regulate the differentiation of human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hBMSCs) and play important roles in the expression of genes related to OA. However, their functional roles in OA remain poorly understood. Here, we have ex...

Impact of exercise therapy on molecular biomarkers related to cartilage and inflammation in people at risk of, or with established, knee osteoarthritis: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

To investigate the impact of exercise therapy on molecular biomarkers related to cartilage and inflammation in people at risk of, or with established, knee osteoarthritis by conducting a systematic review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs).

Identification and evaluation of self-reported physical activity instruments in adults with osteoarthritis: A systematic review.

To identify and evaluate the measurement properties of self-report physical activity (PA) instruments suitable for those with osteoarthritis (OA).

Hip abductor muscle volumes are smaller in individuals affected by patellofemoral joint osteoarthritis.

The aims of this study were twofold: firstly, to compare hip abductor muscle volumes in individuals with patellofemoral joint osteoarthritis (PFJ OA) against those of healthy controls; and secondly, to determine whether hip muscle volumes and hip kinematics during walking are related in individuals with PFJ OA and healthy controls.

Applications of Bayesian statistical methodology to clinical trial design: A case study of a phase 2 trial with an interim futility assessment in patients with knee osteoarthritis.

Development of new pharmacological treatments for osteoarthritis that address unmet medical needs in a competitive market place is challenging. Bayesian approaches to trial design offer advantages in defining treatment benefits by addressing clinically relevant magnitude of effects relative to comparators and in optimizing efficiency in analysis. Such advantages are illustrated by a motivating cas...

Effectiveness of splinting for pain and function in people with thumb carpometacarpal osteoarthritis: a systematic review with meta-analysis.

To examine the effectiveness of splinting for reducing pain and improving function and health-related quality of life (HR-QoL) in people with thumb carpometacarpal osteoarthritis (CMC OA).

Safety and feasibility of high speed resistance training with and without balance exercises for knee osteoarthritis: A pilot randomised controlled trial.

People with knee osteoarthritis (OA) have increased risk of falling with impaired ability to rapidly respond and generate lower limb muscle power to arrest a fall. We examined the feasibility and safety of a high speed resistance training program with and without balance exercises.

Contribution of IL-1β, 6 and TNF-α to the form of post-traumatic osteoarthritis induced by "idealized" anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction in a porcine model.

It has been noted that anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury-induced cartilage degeneration is the key risk factor for post-traumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA). However, whether the cartilage degeneration after ACL injury is caused by inflammation, abnormal biomechanics or both remains largely unknown, as there has been no animal model for separating the two factors so far.

Localized Injection of Streptomycin, Kenacort and Lidocaine combination for Symptomatic Pain Management of Knee Osteoarthritis.

To determine the frequency of reduction of pain in symptomatic knee osteoarthritis by using combination injections.

Sulphurous mud-bath therapy for treatment of chronic low back pain caused by lumbar spine osteoarthritis.

Analysis of gene expression and methylation datasets identified ADAMTS9, FKBP5, and PFKBF3 as biomarkers for osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a kind of chronic osteoarthropathy and degenerative joint disease. Epigenetic regulation in the gene expression dynamics has become increasingly important in OA. We performed a combined analysis of two types of microarray datasets (gene expression and DNA methylation) to identify methylation-based key biomarkers to provide a better understanding of molecular biological mech...

Adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells alleviated osteoarthritis and chondrocyte apoptosis through autophagy inducing.

We aim to explore the effect of adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADMSCs) on a knee osteoarthritis rat model and analyze how ADMSCs affect chondrocyte apoptosis.

Immediate effects of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation on pain and physical performance in individuals with pre-radiographic knee osteoarthritis: a randomized controlled trial.

To investigate the effect of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) on knee pain and comprehensive physical function in pre-radiographic knee osteoarthritis.

Interleukin-1β signaling in osteoarthritis - chondrocytes in focus.

Osteoarthritis (OA) can be regarded as a chronic, painful and degenerative disease that affects all tissues of a joint and one of the major endpoints being loss of articular cartilage. In most cases, OA is associated with a variable degree of synovial inflammation. A variety of different cell types including chondrocytes, synovial fibroblasts, adipocytes, osteoblasts and osteoclasts as well as ste...


Compare changes in the concentration of serum biomarkers in response to continuous versus interval walking exercise in participants with knee osteoarthritis (OA).

LncRNA-CIR promotes articular cartilage degeneration in osteoarthritis by regulating autophagy.

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common joint disease that is regarded as a local inflammatory response caused by joint instability and accompanied by the progressive degeneration of articular cartilage. However, the molecular mechanisms involved in the maintenance of articular cartilage remain a subject of debate and research. This study aims to analyze the roles of long noncoding RNA (lncRNA)CIR and aut...
