Nat Rev Rheumatol. 2014 Aug;10(8):447-8. doi: 10.1038/nrrheum.2014.76. Epub 2014 May 20.


With a frustrating lack of progress in the development of treatments for osteoarthritis, EULAR has released recommendations to reorient research into this disease. These recommendations include focused attention on noncartilagenous tissues, the interaction of structures within the joint, the pathogenesis of osteoarthritic pain, new treatment strategies and early disease.
