History of acute knee injury and osteoarthritis of the knee: a prospective epidemiological assessment. The Clearwater Osteoarthritis Study.
Acute knee joint injury appears to be a risk factor for the development of knee OA and prevention strategies for OA should be targeted to those individuals with a history of acute knee injury.
Joint-specific prevalence of osteoarthritis of the hand.
Osteoarthritis pain and weather.
It is indicated that weather is quite modestly, if at all, associated with pain from OA, as compared with a population of exercisers aged 49 yr and older.

A classification system of IOA that has been designed and modified to reflect the unique roentgenographic, epidemiologic, and clinical characterization of the six subsets of tibiofemoral deformity is reported on.
The association between medication usage and dropout status among participants of an exercise study for people with osteoarthritis.
Self-reported arthritis medication usage the month prior to study enrollment was associated with subsequent dropout status among this group of exercisers with osteoarthritis, and baseline characteristics predictive of participant drop out status were identified.
Smoking and osteoarthritis: is there an association? The Clearwater Osteoarthritis Study.
Smoking does not appear to convey a clinically significant level of protection against the development of radiologically-confirmed OA, and anecdotal evidence warrants investigation into the role that cigarette smoking may play in the symptomatology of OA.
The association of radiographic foot osteoarthritis and radiographic osteoarthritis at other sites.
Physical activity as a risk factor for osteoarthritis of the knee.
Retrospective Study of Outcomes in Hyalgan®-Treated Patients with Osteoarthritis of the Knee
Taller patients, patients with less severe OA, and patients with patellofemoral compartment involvement showed the greatest pain relief and improvements in QOL following treatment with Hyalgan®.
