The NIH Osteoarthritis Initiative
The NIH Osteoarthritis Initiative Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, is a joint disease marked by the gradual loss of cartilage that cushions and protects the bones, abnormal bone growth around the joint, and other joint changes that cause pain and disability. An estimated 27 million Americans age 25 and older have
osteoarthritis, and the knee is among the most commonly affected joints. There are currently no treatments other than surgical joint replacement that change the course of the disease, and al trials for prospective therapies are long, difficult and expensive. Current methods of evaluating osteoarthritis disease progression, including Xrays and blood tests, are not accurate enough to be used
in al trials of potential treatments. Scientists, health care providers and drug companies need biochemical and imaging markers of how osteoarthritis progresses to better diagnose, monitor and treat the disease. In response to this need, the NIH Osteoarthritis Initiative was established. The Osteoarthritis Initiative is a multicenter study of knee
osteoarthritis that involves repeated observation of a set of subjects over time. This publicprivate partnership is a collaboration between the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and pharmaceutical companies. It consists of four al centers, a data coordinating center, and a steering committee that advises on the scientific aspects of the study. The Osteoarthritis Initiative is a premier example of how industry, government and the academic sector can work together to
enhance and extend biomedical research in ways not possible by one individual entity. Nearly 5,000 individuals are being tracked over time with the goals of understanding the natural progression of knee osteoarthritis from onset to total joint replacement and identifying biomarkers and risk factors associated with it. A public repository of osteoarthritis al data,
radiological information and biological specimens has been developed. Making this information available to researchers worldwide is expediting the pace of scientific advancements in these areas. Scientists throughout the world are using this public resource to test biochemical and imaging markers of disease progression, to further the development of osteoarthritis drugs, and to improve public health.
