Abstract

Articular cartilage is the target tissue of osteoarthritis (OA), a degenerative disease with no cure. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Miosge and colleagues (Koelling et al., 2009) report that migratory progenitor cells occupy degenerating OA tissue but that this population is not present in healthy cartilage.
