A novel diclofenac gel (AMZ001) applied once or twice daily in subjects with painful knee osteoarthritis: A randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial

ABSTRACT
Purpose: Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) Expert Consensus Guidelines recommend topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs as first-line medications for osteoarthritis (OA) knee pain, but several voluminous daily applications are required to achieve efficacy. There …

Clinical and Biochemical Factors Associated With Risk of Total Joint Replacement and Radiographic Progression in Osteoarthritis: Data From Two Phase III Clinical Trials

ABSTRACT
Objectives: Clinical trials of new disease-modifying treatments for osteoarthritis should demonstrate a positive effect on a functional outcome or reduction in joint failure in order to be considered successful. Total joint replacement (TJR) surgery may be considered as joint failure, but …

Evaluation of serum ARGS neoepitope as an osteoarthritis biomarker using a standardized model for exercise-induced cartilage extra cellular matrix turnover

OBJECTIVE
To propose a standardized model for exercise-induced cartilage turnover and investigate residual levels and dynamics of biomarker serum ARGS (sARGS) in primary osteoarthritis (OA) patients and a supportive group of young healthy subjects.

METHOD
The trial is a randomized, cross-over, …

Sprifermin (rhFGF18) Versus Vehicle Induces a Biphasic Process of Extracellular Matrix Remodeling in Human Knee OA Articular Cartilage Ex Vivo

ABSTRACT
Sprifermin, recombinant human fibroblast growth factor 18 (rhFGF18), induces cartilage regeneration in knees of patients with osteoarthritis (OA). We hypothesized that a temporal multiphasic process of extracellular matrix (ECM) degradation and formation underlie this effect. We aimed to c…

The acute and long-term impact of physical activity on biochemical markers and MRI measures in osteoarthritis - Perspectives for clinical osteoarthritis research

We aimed to investigate existing literature on the impact of physical activity and exercise (PA) on joint biochemical markers (BM) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) outcomes in osteoarthritis (OA), and on this basis propose directions for future research. Literature Review. Original papers were i…
