Genetic discovery could lead to early detection, treatment for osteoarthritis

A newly detected flaw in a genetic signaling pathway that leads to a hyper-active inflammatory response could help explain why some people are more prone to develop severe osteoarthritis than others, according to University of Utah Health scientists. They say the discovery could eventually lead to ways of detecting early onset of the disease—even before symptoms occur—and the development of new treatments for it.
