Osteoarthritis is an inflammation of joints caused by the depletion of the cartilage on the ends of the bones due to the wear and tear over time.
According to the statistics, in the US, approximately 10% of men and 13% in women aged 60 years or older have osteoarthritis (OA).
Dr.Bitton R, the lead scientist at the Health Plan of Nevada wrote, "approximately one-third of direct OA expenditures are allocated for medications, much of which goes toward pain-related agents. Hospitalization costs comprise nearly half of direct costs, although these expenditures are consumed by only 5% of OA patients who undergo knee or hip replacement surgery".
With an aim to find a natural compound for diseases associated with inflammation, researchers investigated the effects of bromelain in mild-to-moderate knee OA patients.
