In this next installment of our new #CureArthritis web series we take a look out how grant recipient Dr. Denis Evseenko is on the cusp of creating the first medication to treat Osteoarthritis. Currently, people with osteoarthritis have very few options for managing the disease and because of this, many people end up with total joint replacements. Dr. Evseenko has devised a treatment that could dramatically change how we approach osteoarthritis. For the first time ever, people with Osteoarthritis have…

Finding new osteoarthritis drug targets is the focus of many researchers including the recently funded Dr. Jenna Galloway. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that gradually destroys cartilage and bone. Normally, cartilage cushions the ends of bones and provides a smooth gliding surface for joint movement. Over time, chronic osteoarthritis, also described as “wear and tear” arthritis, damages the underlying bone and connective tissues, leading to painful swelling, stiffness and limited mobility. At the Center for Regenerative Medicine and Department of…

Pioneering stem cell research discoveries are driving more research into the molecular mechanisms of cartilage regeneration and repair. New therapies are desperately needed to heal or replace damaged cartilage in joints ravaged by osteoarthritis (OA). Articular cartilage develops as you develop in your mother's womb to provide a smooth gliding surface for joint movement. Once lost to the devastating effects of osteoarthritis, the smooth layer of cartilage no longer cushions the ends of the bones where they come together to…

Nearly 27 million Americans suffer the joint-damaging ravages of osteoarthritis (OA), the most common type of degenerative joint disease. Patients with OA experience a gradual destruction to the layer of bone-cushioning cartilage that provides a smooth gliding surface for the joints. As the disease progresses, fluid leaks into the lining of the joints and disrupts the formation of new healthy cartilage. Damaged cells begin to form painful bony spurs as errant cells multiply and grow haphazardly. As cartilage breaks down…

Dr. Yingcui Li, Ph.D. is a two-time ANRF Grant Recipient and she is currently a full-time professor at the University of Hartford. Dr. Li, who was funded from 2011 to 2013, is conducting exciting research on osteoarthritis. Her project focused on the simple sugar molecule, Hyaluronan and the presence of Hyaluronan in the synovial joint fluid. In doing her research she discovered that the absence of Hyaluronan can bring about the onset of osteoarthritis. Dr. Li developed the first mouse…

Written by Jes Sofia Valle, MA IMFT I wake up everyday thinking of something Positive. It has always helped me through it all. I can say that after two Spine Surgeries, One Hip Surgery, a foot re-location and a knee issue, my body should be shot down by now. But I’m not. I walk my dog every morning and I do yoga or stretching most days. I’m always looking for the next step when it comes of being a motivated…
