Knee pain due to arthritis or injury is the second most common cause of chronic pain in the United States. Osteoarthritis affects more than 30 million adults in the United States. And the rate of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears among children and teens has been increasing about 2.3% per year for the past two decades, according to a new study.

We evaluated the ability of Coll2-1, a type II collagen peptide, to activate pro-inflammatory pathways in synovial cells and to induce arthritis in Lewis rats.
ObjectiveTo assess the efficacy and safety of high ‐purity synthetic trans‐capsaicin (CNTX‐4975) in patients with chronic moderate‐to‐severe osteoarthritis (OA)–associated knee pain.MethodsIn this phase II multicenter double ‐blind study, patients ages 45–80 years who had stable knee OA were randomized in a 2:1:2 ratio to receive a single intraarticular injection of placebo, CNTX‐4975 0.5 mg, or CNTX‐4975 1.0 mg. The primary efficacy end point was area under the curve (AUC) for change from baseline in daily West ern Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index pain with walking score (...
