Pharmaceutical-grade chondroitin sulfate seen as effective in patients with knee osteoarthritis

May 25, 2017

Patients with knee osteoarthritis who took chondroitin sulfate showed improved function at 6 months compared with patients who took placebo, according to a recently published study of 603 patients.

“This compelling benefit-risk profile, in light of the known clinical risks associated with chronic usage of NSAIDs and paracetamol, underscores the potential importance of pharmaceutical-grade [chondroitin sulfate] CS in the management of knee [osteoarthritis] OA, especially in this older population requiring long-term treatment,” Jean-Yves Reginster, MD, PhD, from Liège State University in Belgium, and colleagues wrote.
