Special Issue Information
Osteoarthritis is a severe disease that affects millions of people worldwide, resulting in severe disability and a deterioration in the general condition of patients. To date, there is no curative treatment for this disease. There are at least two reasons for this situation: The molecular mechanisms involved in the early phase of the disease, before the appearance of symptoms and imaging features, are not yet well understood, and there is no soluble biochemical marker to detect early the disease. Therefore, through this Special Issue, we would like to highlight recent discoveries on the factors and signaling pathways involved in the onset and development of the disease as well as molecules which may soon prove to be robust markers for screening the disease. Review or research articles are all welcomed.
