Drug May Extend Life of Arthritic Knees and Hips

An osteoporosis drug that is the first ever known to prevent cartilage loss following injury to a joint may also regenerate some cartilage that has been lost to osteoarthritis, according to research presented at the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research in Denver. Though this initial study was done on mice, study authors claim that the model closely resembles human osteoarthritis that develops following knee injuries.
