Artra is a model of combination symptom-modifying therapy for osteoarthrosis and intervertebral osteochondrosis

Full Text:


The paper gives an update on therapy for osteoarthrosis (OA). Symptomatic sustained-release drugs, particularly structural analogues of the cartilage (glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate), that have the weightiest body of evidence is noted to occupy a special place in the treatment of OA. Therapy involving these agents contributes not only to the suppression of pain and the recovery of affected joint function, but also to the slow progression, normalization, or stabilization of structural changes in the hyaline cartilage, to the prevention of changes in the intact joint, and to improved quality of life in the patients.
