Arthritis & Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic and degenerative joint disease that leads to clinical symptoms and structural changes in the affected joints. It primarily affects the joint cartilage, resulting in pain, swelling, and stiffness. OA is a major cause of disability and pain, and its prevalence is expected to rise with the aging population and increasing rates of obesity. In recent years, significant progress has been made in understanding the underlying mechanisms, diagnosis, and management of OA, leading to potential therapeutic advancements.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have emerged as a prominent area of research in cell-based therapies for OA. They are extensively studied due to their ability to differentiate into chondrocytes, the cells responsible for cartilage formation, and their immunomodulatory properties. MSCs hold the potential to enhance cartilage regeneration and contribute to the restoration of healthier joints.
