Biochemical markers reflecting joint remodeling in osteoarthritis (OA) are a promising diagnostic tool. The aim of this study was to investigate serum levels of candidate biomarkers in subjects with and without knee OA and assess their correlation with clinical parameters and knee structural damage. 56 patients with primary knee OA and 31 healthy controls participated in this study. Patients were separated into two groups: isolated knee OA and generalized OA. Clinical parameters were obtained by validated self-reported questionnaires and a visual analogue scale...

OBJECTIVE: Plasma thermograms (thermal stability profiles of blood plasma) are being utilized as a new diagnostic approach for clinical assessment. In this study, we investigated the ability of plasma thermograms to classify systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients versus non SLE controls using a sample of 300 SLE and 300 control subjects from the Lupus Family Registry and Repository. Additionally, we evaluated the heterogeneity of thermograms along age, sex, ethnicity, concurrent health conditions and SLE diagnostic criteria...

OBJECTIVES: The IL-23/IL-17 axis is central to the pathogenesis of psoriatic arthritis (PsA). We aimed to identify Th17 signalling genes that are dysregulated in synovial fluid of PsA compared to osteoarthritis (OA) patients and to determine if differences in peripheral blood can distinguish PsA from psoriasis patients and controls. METHODS: Synovial fluid cells (SFCs) from 14 PsA and 9 OA patients were obtained and stored in TRIzol reagent. RNA was isolated by phenol-chloroform extraction and purified with RNeasy miniprep kits...

OBJECTIVE: To identify candidate microRNAs that potentially regulate the initiation and progression of osteoarthritis. METHODS: Osteoarthritis was induced in 10-12 week old male wild-type C57BL6 mice and in mice resistant to aggrecanase cleavage (Acan p.374ALGS→374NVYS) by destabilization of the medial meniscus (DMM). Osteoarthritis pathology was scored histologically. RNA from cartilage and subchondral bone were harvested in parallel by laser micro-dissection at 1 and 6 weeks post-surgery...

Numerous studies have focused on osteoarthritis (OA) cartilage injuries, with observations of abnormalities in microRNA (miRNA) expression levels. The aim of the present study was to consolidate and assess the results of these studies to identify potential miRNA biomarkers of OA. A comprehensive meta‑analysis of eight independent miRNA expression studies in OA was performed using the robust rank aggregation method (RRA), which contained a total of 82 OA and 39 normal cartilage samples. The targets of meta‑signature miRNA were predicted using TargetScan v6...

PURPOSE: To explore mechanisms underlying the association of TSG-6 with osteoarthritis (OA) progression. METHODS: TSG-6-mediated heavy chain (HC) transfer (TSG-6 activity) and its association with inflammatory mediators were quantified in knee OA (n = 25) synovial fluids (SFs). Paired intact and damaged cartilages from the same individuals (20 tibial and 12 meniscal) were analyzed by qRT-PCR and immunohistochemistry (IHC) for gene and protein expression of TSG-6 and components of Inter-alpha-Inhibitor (IαI) (necessary for TSG-6 activity), and for TSG-6 activity ± spiked in IαI...

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disorder and affects approximately half of the aged population. Current treatments for OA are largely palliative until the articular cartilage has been deeply damaged and irreversible morphological changes appear. Thus, effective methods are needed for diagnosing and monitoring the progression of OA during its early stages when therapeutic drugs or biological agents are most likely to be effective. Various proteinases involved in articular cartilage degeneration in pre-OA conditions, which may represent the earliest reversible measurable changes, are considered diagnostic and therapeutic targets for early OA...

BACKGROUND: DSC is used to determine thermally-induced conformational changes of biomolecules within a blood plasma sample. Recent research has indicated that DSC curves (or thermograms) may have different characteristics based on disease status and, thus, may be useful as a monitoring and diagnostic tool for some diseases. Since thermograms are curves measured over a range of temperature values, they are considered functional data. In this paper we apply functional data analysis techniques to analyze differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) data from individuals from the Lupus Family Registry and Repository (LFRR)...

Background Viscosupplementation (VS) is a symptomatic treatment of knee osteoarthritis. Although systematic reviews of its repeat use showed favorable benefit/risk ratio, no study has focused on the indication of retreatment. Methods A task force was created to look at issues regarding retreatment with VS in knee osteoarthritis. An attempt was made to reach consensus on several issues: (1) to define treatment "success" and "failure," (2) to determine when to retreat patients successfully treated by a previous VS, (3) to determine how to retreat patients in whom VS failed, (4) to define what to do in case of adverse reaction following previous VS, and (5) to examine the interests of soluble biomarkers to manage retreatment...

The aim of the present study was to assess the efficacy and safety of the oral administration of Ajuga decumbens extract (ADE) supplement to individuals with knee discomfort associated with physical activity. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was conducted using 48 subjects. The subjects were randomly allocated to an ADE diet group (oral administration of ADE-containing diet, n=24) or a placebo group (n=24), and the intervention was conducted for 12 weeks. A total of 22 subjects in the placebo group and 22 subjects in the ADE diet group were assessed to be eligible for assessment of the efficacy of supplement...

Traumatic knee injuries often result in damage to articular cartilage and other joint structures. Such trauma is a strong risk factor for the future development and progression of osteoarthritis (OA). The molecular mechanisms and signaling pathways modulating response to knee joint trauma remain unclear. Moreover, investigations of biomarkers influencing responses have been targeted rather than broad, unbiased discovery studies. Herein we characterize the complete complement of extracellular RNA (exRNA) in the synovial fluid of 14 subjects following knee injury...

Innate immune molecule surfactant protein D (SP-D), a member of the C-type lectin protein family, plays an indispensable role in host defense and the regulation of inflammation in the lung and other tissues. Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease of cartilage, with inflammation that causes pathologic changes and tissue damage. However, it is unknown whether there exist SP-D expression and its potential role in the pathogenesis of OA. In this study, we examined SP-D expression and explored its biological function in a sodium nitroprusside (SNP)-stimulated rat chondrocytes and surgically-induced rat OA model...

Hand osteoarthritis (OA) is a common degenerative joint disorder leading to substantial pain and disability. The most severe subtype is erosive hand OA characterized by an abrupt onset, local inflammation, subchondral erosions and worse outcomes than non-erosive disease. Biomarkers of hand OA could help to diagnose the disease earlier, to distinguish patients with erosive and non-erosive forms, to assess disease severity or to predict its future progression. The objective of this review was to summarize the role of potential biomarkers of hand OA...

The effect of scopoletin-standardized Morinda elliptica leaf extract against osteoarthritis was investigated in ex vivo explant culture and preclinical rodent model. Thirty male rats were grouped (n = 6) into untreated osteoarthritis (OA), OA + Diclofenac (5 mg/kg), and OA + extract (200 and 400 mg/kg) and compared with healthy control. Monosodium iodoacetate were injected into the right intra-articular knee joints to induce OA. The rats were evaluated for OA severity via physical (micro-CT and histological observations), biochemical, ELISA, and mRNA expression analysis (for inflammation and cartilage degradation biomarkers), after 28 days of treatment...
