Hand arthritis
In a paper published in Nature Aging, a group of scientists outlines a previously unknown pathway that leads to osteoarthritis and describes a promising treatment [1]. Less than a killer, more than a nuisance There are plenty of deadly age-related diseases, and then there are others that shorten our healthspan rather than lifespan, making the...
Hand arthritis
A study published in Aging has found that osteopontin's effects on bone remodeling may be at least partially responsible for osteoarthritis. BoneBone tissue serves as the primary structural component of our bodies. It protects our delicate inner organs, plays a key role in whole body calcium, phosphorus, and acid-base homeostasis, and allows movement to occur...
Osteoarthritis
A new study shows that even low levels of physical activity are very good for your muscles, bones, and joints, but exercising too much can potentially harm you [1]. The unholy trinity Sarcopenia, osteoporosis, and osteoarthritis are the trio of age-related diseases that affect, respectively, muscles, bones, and joints. Sarcopenia is the progressive loss of...
Arthritis
Publishing in Science Advances, a team of researchers has described how a scaffold containing genetically engineered induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) can reduce symptoms in a mouse model of rheumatoid arthritis. The advantage over current drugs Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is currently treated through drugs that often suppress the immune system as a side effect [1]....
Cartilage cells
New research published in Stem Cell Research and Therapy has improved the regenerative potential of chondrocytes in vitro. CartilageCartilage tissue is found in various places throughout the human body, including the ears, the nose, between the ribs, and the trachea. While trauma can compromise cartilage in each of these locations, most cartilage problems occur at...

A collective of scientists has shown that osteoarthritis can be alleviated by guiding skeletal stem cells towards differentiation into chondrocytes, which are responsible for producing healthy cartilage [1]. Osteoarthritis (OA) is a classic example of an age-related disease. While almost non-existent in younger people, it affects as much as half of the over-65 population worldwide....
