Summary Antiinflammatory drugs, as well as glucosamine salts are widely used for the treatment of osteoarthrosis. Antiinflammatory drugs relieve pain, but they inhibit cartilage proteoglycan (PP) synthesis. A standard method which uses “in vitro” cultures of articular cartilage capsules from rat femoral heads removed from the acetabular cavity and radioactive precursors as well as analytical determinations has been chosen for these studies. Glucosamine HCl enhances tritiated proline as well as… Expand
The neglect of glucosamine as a treatment for osteoarthritis--a personal perspective.
TLDR
By mechanisms that are still unclear, the natural methyl donor S-adenosylmethionine also promotes production of cartilage proteoglycans, and is therapeutically beneficial in osteoarthritis in well-tolerated oral doses, and this and other safe nutritional measures supporting proteoglycan synthesis, may offer a practical means of preventing or postponing the onset of osteoartritis in older people or athletes. Expand
Glucosamine sulfate modulates dysregulated activities of human osteoarthritic chondrocytes in vitro.
TLDR
GS modified cultured OA chondrocyte metabolism by acting on PKC, cellular PLA2, protein synthesis and possibly collagenase activation, and significantly and dose-dependently increased protein synthesis. Expand
Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates in the treatment of osteoarthritis: a survey.
TLDR
Experimental evidence indicates that glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate have a particular tropism for cartilage where they serve as substrates in the biosynthesis of component building blocks. Expand
High doses of glucosamine-HCl have detrimental effects on bovine articular cartilage explants cultured in vitro.
TLDR
It is shown that pharmacological doses of glucosamine induce a broad impairment in the metabolic activity of bovine chondrocytes, leading to cell death, and particular attention should be addressed to the experimental model, the doses and the length of treatment. Expand
Sulfated glycosaminoglycans and glucosamine may synergize in promoting synovial hyaluronic acid synthesis.
TLDR
The possibility that oral glucosamine and CS may interact in a complementary or synergistic fashion to improve synovial fluid HA content in OA should be assessed in clinical studies, and the potential of adjunctive CS administration to improve the clinical response achievable with optimal intakes of glucose should likewise be evaluated. Expand
Glucosamine sulfate in osteoarthritis of the knee.
TLDR
It is concluded that glucosamine sulfate may be a safe and effective symptomatic Slow Acting Drug for OA. Expand
Stimulation of proteoglycan production by glucosamine sulfate in chondrocytes isolated from human osteoarthritic articular cartilage in vitro.
TLDR
Glucosamine sulfate did not affect DNA synthesis nor coll II production but caused a statistically significant stimulation of PG production by chondrocytes from human osteoarthritic cartilage cultured for up to 12 days in 3-dimensional cultures. Expand
Comparison of glucose derivatives effects on cartilage degradation
TLDR
It is shown that glucosamine derivatives can alter anabolic and catabolic processes in HACs induced by IL-1β, and GlcN-S had the highest chondroprotective activity of all four chemicals. Expand
Glucosamine sulfate compared to ibuprofen in osteoarthritis of the knee.
TLDR
Glucosamine sulfate was therefore as effective as ibuprofen on symptoms of knee OA and is confirmed as a safe symptomatic Slow Acting Drug for OA. Expand
Niacinamide therapy for osteoarthritis--does it inhibit nitric oxide synthase induction by interleukin 1 in chondrocytes?
TLDR
Non-toxic nutritional regimens, by intervening at multiple points in the signal transduction pathways that promote the synthesis and mediate the activity of IL-1, may provide a substantially superior alternative to NSAIDs in the treatment and perhaps prevention of OA. Expand

Effect of anti-inflammatory drugs on glucosamine-6-phosphate synthetase from inflamed tissue of rats.
TLDR
Good correlation was seen between increases of the enzyme activity and the swelling in the hind paws as adjuvant disease appeared and developed in rats and the drug-action to Gm-6-P synthesis with the paw enzyme was much clearer in the reaction at pH 6.8 than pH 7.7. Expand
Intracellular synthesis of protein-polysaccharides by slices of bovine costal cartilage.
TLDR
Sss-sulfate does indeed serve as a convenient and appropriate marker in turnover studies of chondroitin sulfate, and it has been concluded that in costal cartilage of rats, the two moieties are catabolized at similar rates. Expand
Effect of D-glucosamine concentration on the kinetics of mucopolysaccharide biosynthesis in cultured chick embryo vertebral cartilage.
TLDR
The change in rates of synthesis of individual mucopolysaccharides is not accompanied by a diminution in the over-all rate of mucopoly Saccharide synthesis, as is the case with increasing concentrations of d-glucosamine in the culture medium. Expand
The importance of amino acids as dialyzable components of rat serum which promote sulfate uptake by cartilage from hypophysectomized rats in vitro.
TLDR
It is suggested that a part of the dialyzable sulfation-promoting activity of serum is attributable to amino acids, and an interaction between the nondialyzable, probably protein or protein-bound, component and amino acids is also suggested. Expand

TLDR
It is not possible at present to state conclusively whether or not AMPS's are actually necessary for biological calcification, but the presence of both microheterogeneity and polymorphism in CS chains has been increasingly observed. Expand
Studies on mechanism of action of salicylates. V. Effect of salicylic acid on enzymes involved in mucopolysaccharides synthesis.
TLDR
The wound-healing retardation action of salicylates is probably due mainly to its inhibitory action on mucopolysaccharide synthesis. Expand
Glutamine as an Accelerator of Chondroitin Sulphate Synthesis
TLDR
In the course of the work, it was noted that small amounts of a liver homogenate added to the suspending medium produced a remarkable stimulation of the sulphate incorporation into chondroitin sulphuric acid. Expand

TLDR
An inhibitory effect of salicylate on glycoprotein biosynthesis at the level of the amino sugar intermediates is suggested by incubation of sheep colonic mucosal scrapings in Krebs-Ringer buffer and analysis of papain-digested glycop Protein. Expand
Chondroitin Sulfate: Inhibition of Synthesis by Puromycin
TLDR
It is suggested that synthesis of this polysaccharide is coupled with that of protein; there may be a feedback control in its synthesis. Expand
