Cartilage damage molecular response12th May 2008
A new study's results show that a team of scientists have been able to identify how molecules respond to cartilage trauma.
The team have said this might prove why individuals who have joint cartilage injuries have more chance of developing osteoporosis. Dr Francesco Dell'Accio, who led the team, said further research was necessary "to optimally target the respective pathways to promote joint surface cartilage defect repair or to stop further joint surface breakdown, thereby preventing the development of posttraumatic OA".
