The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in hand osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis is the most common joint disease, most frequently involving the hands, resulting in pain, stiffness and loss of hand function. At present, there is no option to prevent the onset or the progression of hand osteoarthritis (OA). It is believed that inflammation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of OA and that anti-inflammatory drugs might be an effective treatment for OA. Anti-malarial agents like chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are potential anti-inflammatory drugs and hydroxychloroquine has already proven to be an effective suppressor of inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis. Several previous studies with hydroxychloroquine in hand OA also showed a possible effect on pain and inflammation, but these studies were mostly retrospective with a small number of patients. This is the first prospective, randomised, placebo-controlled study to determine the effect of hydroxychloroquine in hand osteoarthritis.

A chemotherapeutic agent that acts against erythrocytic forms of malarial parasites. Hydroxychloroquine appears to concentrate in food vacuoles of affected protozoa. It inhibits plasmodial heme polymerase. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed, p970)
A type of ion exchange chromatography using diethylaminoethyl cellulose (DEAE-CELLULOSE) as a positively charged resin. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
Cellulose derivative used in chromatography, as ion-exchange material, and for various industrial applications.
A cellulose of varied carboxyl content retaining the fibrous structure. It is used as a local hemostatic and as a matrix for normal blood coagulation.
A family of glycosidases that hydrolyse crystalline CELLULOSE into soluble sugar molecules. Within this family there are a variety of enzyme subtypes with differing substrate specificities that must work together to bring about complete cellulose hydrolysis. They are found in structures called CELLULOSOMES.
