  • Background Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most prevalent form of arthritis in EU countries and is characterised by cartilage degeneration, subchondral bone thickening and synovial inflammation. However, the molecular mechanisms involved in initiation and progression of the disease are poorly understood. A recent study suggested that vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is re-expressed in osteoarthritic cartilage in guinea pigs1, therefore it is conceivable that VEGF plays an important role in… CONTINUE READING
