Quick Hits: New Drug Combo Reversed Arthritis in Animals

Current treatments for the “wear and tear” arthritis are limited to pain relievers or joint replacement surgery.

The combination also worked in isolated human cartilage cells, indicating a human treatment could very likely be on the horizon.
