AbstractObjectivesThe prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and knee osteoarthritis (OA) is increasing with our aging society. Some reports suggest that OA with effusion synovitis develops into RA and early OA patients with effusion are pathologically similar to those with RA. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between histological features of established knee OA with or without effusion and RA.MethodsSeventy-nine patients in which synovial specimens were obtained during total knee arthroplasty were included. Patients were divided into an RA group, OA with effusion (OA+) group, and OA without effus...

AbstractPurposeThe management of knee pain secondary to meniscal tears with osteoarthritis is limited by the poor inherent healing potential of the meniscus. Previous studies have reported on the benefit of autologous micro-fragmented fat as a therapeutic for various knee pathologies. The goal of this prospective pilot study was to determine the safety and potential treatment effect of micro-fragmented adipose tissue injection for patients with knee pain secondary to osteoarthritis and meniscal tears who have failed conservative management.MethodsTwenty subjects with knee pain secondary to osteoarthritis with associated me...

ConclusionOur results provide new evidence that osteocytic TGF β signaling is required for a mechanosensitive response to injury, and that osteocytes control SBP homeostasis to maintain cartilage health, uncovering osteocytic TGFβ signaling as a novel therapeutic target for OA.
