In a survey of the general population the presence or absence of osteoarthrosis of the hand was determined radiologically in 685 adults (300 males and 385 females). Of these, 261 (124 males and 137 females), chosen randomly, were given a complete clinical examination of the musculoskeletal system which included x-ray of joints elsewhere in the body. Osteoarthrosis (OA) scores for the hand and for all body sites were computed for each subject by summing the number of affected joints. For all… 
Clinical, radiologic, demographic, and occupational aspects of hand osteoarthritis in the elderly.
TLDR
Hand OA was prevalent in elderly patients in the authors' elderly cohort, and its severity was influenced by inherent traits such as age, female gender, ethnicity, and handedness, while acquired factors such as workload, number of children, and associated diseases did not appear to influence OA expression.

The multifactorial control of serum uric acid levels is discussed from an epidemiological point of view and the principles at issue related to the epidemiology of osteoarthrosis. It is shown that in
IDIOPATHIC ADOLESCENT SCOLIOSIS–A PROTOTYPE OF DEGENERATIVE JOINT DISEASE
TLDR
Osteophytes reflecting the presence of degenerative joint disease occurred in apophyseal and/or intervertebral joints of 74% of 100 subjects and were correlated with curve angle and apical rotation.

Demographic study of osteoarthritis of knee joint in Salahaldin governorate
TLDR
Females affected twice more than males with OA of knee and its disabilities and Obesity is serious contributing factor.
Occurrence of symptomatic knee osteoarthrosis in rural Finland: a prospective follow up study.
TLDR
All visits to physicians in the Orivesi Region Federation of Municipalities for Public Health Work in Finland paid due to symptomatic osteoarthrosis of the knee joint were prospectively recorded over a period of one year, providing basic information about patients needing medical help because of symptomatic knee osteOarthrosis.
Radiographic osteoarthritis and obesity.
TLDR
Excess weight is strongly associated with knee OA in females and symptoms of joint pain in all OA patients, with a weaker but still significant link with male knees OA and generalized OA only in females.
Association of hand and knee osteoarthritis: evidence for a polyarticular disease subset.
TLDR
There is an association between OA in hand sites and the knee and the strength of the associations increases with increasing disease severity, with a trend toward increasing strength of association for increasing numbers of affected joints and bilateral disease.

New Haven survey of joint diseases. XII. Distribution and symptoms of osteoarthrosis in the hands with reference to handedness.
TLDR
A detailed analysis is presented of the patterns and symptoms of osteoarthrosis in the hands of a population sample living in a town on the East Coast of the United States, and results indicate that there may be a traumatic element in generalized osteOarthrosis.
Osteo-arthrosis. Prevalence in the population and relationship between symptoms and x-ray changes.
TLDR
Although osteo-arthrosis occurs with considerable frequency in population samples and is almost universal in the older age groups, mere prevalence statistics give little indication of its importance to the community whether as a cause of suffering or of economic loss.
Osteoarthrosis in Patients and Populations*
TLDR
It may be interesting to review some of the information obtained in recent years from the study of osteoarthrosis in population groups by field-survey techniques.
VARYING HEMOLYTIC AND CONSTANT COMBINING CAPACITY OF STREPTOLYSINS; INFLUENCE ON TESTING FOR ANTISTREPTOLYSINS

TLDR
Certain properties of streptolysin in respect of hemolytic power and capacity for combining with antistreptolysins have been determined and this stability of combining capacity makes it possible to prepare a large amount of strePTolysin, standardize it against sera of known antistrifying strength, and use it as a reagent over a considerable period for testing the antist reagent content of unknown sera.
