Exercise improves arthritis symptoms, down to the cellular level

(Natural News) Exercise is important for living a healthy life, and a new study encourages people, particularly those with osteoarthritis, to exercise more. Yes, people with osteoarthritis can and should exercise. Published in the journal Osteoarthritis and Cartilage, the study suggested that exercise can help prevent the degradation of cartilage caused by osteoarthritis. To be...

CONCLUSIONS: Surgeons are cautious when considering THA in very young patients despite the significant documented improvement in function and quality of life after THA. This study reports on the mid- to long-term results of THA which will be valuable when advising young patients on the prospects of revision surgery at the time of primary THA.

ConclusionOverall, our results suggest that G-Rb1 exerts cartilage protective effect on MIA induced ovariectomized OA rats, by inhibiting inflammatory mediators such as IL-6, IL-1β, MCP1/CCL2, COX-2, and PGE2. These results shed a light on possible therapeutic application of G-Rb1 in OA.Graphical abstract

The objective of this study was to characterize the microbial DNA profile of articular cartilage and determine changes associated with osteoarthritis (OA).Methods16s rRNA gene deep sequencing was performed on eroded and intact cartilage samples from knee and hip OA patients and cadaveric controls. Microbial DNA diversity was assessed, groups compared, and metagenomic profiles reconstructed. Confirmation was performed in an independent cohort by clade ‐specific qPCR. Human results were compared to cartilage from OA‐susceptible C57BL6 and OA‐resistant MRL/MpJ mice. Germ‐free C57BL6 mouse cartilage was analyzed as a m...

a Rocha Pitta MG Abstract BACKGROUND: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic autoimmune disease characterized by chronic and progressive inflammation that can cause a high degree of disability in affected individuals. Proinflammatory cytokines play central roles in the development of degradative and inflammatory responses in RA. IL-29 has been identified in RA and reported as a biomarker of the disease. OBJECTIVE: To analyze serum levels and accuracy of IL-29 in RA patients compared to healthy subjects and patients with other rheumatic diseases. METHODS: IL-29 serum levels were measured in 121 patients ...
