Intra-Articular Treatments Horizons in Osteoarthritis

Arthritis falls into two very broad categories, which are not mutually exclusive. The most common is Osteoarthritis (OA), in which a primary feature is degeneration of articular cartilage, often accompanied by evidence of soft tissue inflammation ranging from subtle to overt. The other broad category contains inflammatory arthropathies, of which rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis are the most common examples [1]. Therapies focus on reducing symptoms such as pain and stiffness, and minimizing functional limitation and disability. Being the primary aim of treatment patients, pain control is a primary outcome measure in evaluating treatment response.
