In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, we evaluated the efficacy of deer bone extract (DBE) in participants with knee osteoarthritis (OA). We enrolled 50 participants aged 50-70 years, having knee OA with a Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) score ≥5.0. The participants were assigned to the placebo or DBE group (550 mg/day) for 12 weeks. The outcome measures were as follows: pain score on the visual analog scale (VAS); WOMAC score; and blood and urine biomarkers. In the DBE group, VAS scores, WOMAC total scores, and WOMAC subscores (for pain, stiffness, and physical function) improved significantly compared with the baseline values. However, there was no significant difference in outcomes between the DBE and placebo groups. The present findings suggest that DBE may mildly reduce joint pain and stiffness and improve joint function in patients with painful knee OA.

Clinicians need a reliable and accurate tools that can best identify and classify balance impairments between mild and moderate to severe grades of knee osteoarthritis (OA).
To evaluate if the relative volume of bone marrow lesions (BMLs) changed in patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA) during a therapeutic study.
The objective of the study was to investigate the association of hip and lumbar spine (LS) bone mineral density (BMD) with the presence and severity of radiographic knee osteoarthritis (OA), including...
Knee osteoarthritis is a joint disease characterized by degeneration, loss of cartilage and subchondral bone alteration associated with changes in the soft tissues. In a sample of 2,500 individuals, t...
The hypothesis of this study is that human subchondral bone exhibits abnormal patterns of perfusion in osteoarthritis (OA) that can be characterized by kinetic parameters of blood flow using dynamic c...

Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the knee joint consisting of three large categories: conditions that block normal synchronous movement, conditions that produce abnormal pathways of motion, and conditions that cause stress concentration resulting in changes to articular cartilage. (Crenshaw, Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics, 8th ed, p2019)
A bone-patellar tendon graft used for fixation of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT during surgical reconstruction of the knee.
An instrument used to assess the results of rehabilitation from knee injuries, especially those requiring ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT RECONSTRUCTION. It measures recovery of knee joint function based on ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING.
