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