Objective: Osteoarthritis is basically a degenerative disease of joint cartilage and characterized with the change of structure and function of joint. Glucosamine sulfate is a common supportive treatment modality for the osteoarthritis. We aimed to evaluate the short-term effects of daily 1500 mg glucosamine sulfate for 6 weeks on patients with the symptoms of osteoarthritis. Methods: 100 patients who were diagnosed as osteoarthritis of knee recruited to the study. 50 patients who received… Expand
