Context: Osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease, is one the most common forms of joint disorder in the United States and affects over 20 million people. Current treatments for its management involve the use of analgesics such as acetaminophen and nonsteroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These treatments, however, have shown limited effectiveness, and in some cases, have produced severe side effects, including GI conditions, internal bleeding, and kidney damage.
