Abstract

Osteoarthritis is a common and sometimes disabling disease. New directions in therapy include inhibitors of selective proteins and transplantation of cultured chondrocytes. At the present time, treatment continues to be in response to a patient's symptoms. Thus, the challenge to physicians is to devise individual treatment plans that safely maximize relief and preservation of joint function.
