PURPOSE To understand the possible significance of the presence of proteases, cytokines, growth factors, and arachidonic acid metabolites in the osteoarthritic temporomandibular joint (TMJ), a review of the normal physiologic processes and participating factors in the normal TMJ is established, based on knowledge of structure, biochemistry and metabolism of normal cartilage in general.
