New Simple Blood Test Will Help Diagnose OA Early

I seem to be stuck on the Daily Mail this month!

Blood test for osteoarthritis

They won’t even have to draw blood as this test needs only a drop of blood!

However this is an interesting article from them although I cannot find much on the actual research that is being done.

They report that British researchers are close to developing a simple blood test that will allow OA to be diagnosed early.

This is a huge breakthrough. The earlier it is diagnosed the better the long term outcome of the patient.

I agree with  Arthritis Research UK who describe the research as ‘of great interest’ and I will let you know when I hear more about this!
