This is the second big announcement this week about a possible new treatment for osteoarthritis that may halt the progression of the disease rather than simply treating the symptoms.
This makes the discovery of this new drug, Protelos, all the more exciting. Unfortunately they have not found the magic pill that will cure osteoarthritis but they may have found a drug that at least may halt it’s progression.
You can read the whole article here at the Telegraph:
This is an exciting development in the treatment of osteoarthritis and is the first time medicine has found a drug treatment that could make a real difference. Let’s hope it doesn’t have too many side effects!
Most of us look forward to a future of spiraling downwards into a life of ever increasing pain and stiffness. At least with Protelos we could do something positive rather than simply chasing the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
Best news of all this new treatment for osteoarthritis apparently costs about $1 a day so it won’t break the bank either!
So is this exciting to you or do you think it will be so long getting past the red tape you will be past it being any benefit to you?
