Osteoarthritis is a common, degenerative joint disease with significant socio-economic impact worldwide. There are currently no disease-modifying drugs available to treat the disease, making this an important area of pharmaceutical research. In this review, we assessed approaches being explored to directly inhibit metalloproteinase-mediated cartilage degradation and to counteract cartilage damage by promoting growth factor-driven repair. Metalloproteinase-blocking antibodies are discussed, along...

Abstract Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common disease of joint tissues; unfortunately, there are currently no curative therapies available for OA. Chondrocytes, the only cell type residing in cartilage, secrete many types of collagen (the mainly one is type II collagen) and aggrecan, which are the main components of the cartilage matrix. Chondrocyte apoptosis can lead to OA degenerative progression. We previously indicated that recombinant human midkine (rhMK), as a chondrocyte growth factor h...
