Osteoarthritis is a common joint disease characterized by the progressive degeneration of the articular cartilage. In this chapter, the application of Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) microspectroscopy for the determination of spatial composition of main structural components of articular cartilage, i.e. collagen and proteoglycans, is presented. The previous results from FTIR microspectroscopic analyses of immature, mature and degenerated articular cartilage are briefly reviewed. Specifically… CONTINUE READING
