NEVER Get Arthritis?! (Here’s How…)
It’s hard for your golden years to truly be golden when you’re in pain.
And joint pain is the worst.
Years of use (and overuse) can wear down the cartilage between your joints.
And when bone starts rubbing on bone, the pain can be excruciating.
But there’s hope.
Researchers have developed a revolutionary new treatment that can REGENERATE the cartilage in your joints.
The search is on for a way to bring relief to the 55 million Americans who experience joint pain and arthritis.
Complete joint replacements are becoming more common. One in ten people have a hip replaced by the time they hit 80 years old. And one in 20 have a knee replaced.
Of course, that kind of major surgery can also come with major downsides, especially for older people. They only last for so long, and you’ve had to endure years of debilitating pain before doctors will do a surgery like this.
More recently, researchers have tried to intervene before people need surgery.
They discovered that damaged cartilage can be regrown through a process called microfracture. This occurs when tiny holes are drilled in the surface of a joint, which causes your body to create new tissue in the joint called fibrocartilage.
Unfortunately, this tissue doesn’t have the elasticity of real cartilage, and it breaks down quickly.
But here’s the interesting part.
Cells go through a cartilage stage before turning into bone. Researchers have found a way to hijack that healing process after microfracture, stopping the healing at the “cartilage” stage.
Here’s how they do it:
Step 1: A molecule called BMP2 (bone morphogenic protein 2) initiates bone formation after microfracture.
Step 2: The formation of bone is stopped midway—when it is in the cartilage stage—with a molecule that BLOCKS bone formation. (It’s called VEGF, or vascular endothelial growth factor.)
Mouse studies have shown that this process RESTORED MOBILITY and significantly REDUCED PAIN.
They’ve also transferred human tissue to mice, and found that human skeletal stem cells could also be halted at the cartilage stage… which shows that this concept could very well work in humans.
This research is still in its early stages, but the results were too interesting not to share.
And since both of the drugs used in this therapy are already approved by the FDA, getting a therapy through human trials and then on for approval wouldn’t take nearly as long.
I’ll be keeping a close eye on this one.
