ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a research that suggested that chondroitin does not reduce pain more than placebo in patients with knee osteoarthritis. It is informed that groups with low-dose chondroitin were excluded from the study, while median treatment duration was 25 weeks. It is stated that median oral dose was 1000 mg/d, while follow-up was done for 31 median weeks. The study found that chondroitin increased joint space width more than placebo. Relevant charts are also given.
