Osteoarthritis (OA) is a painful and debilitating musculoskeletal disease that is characterized by intra-articular (IA) inflammation, deterioration of articular cartilage, and degenerative changes to per-articular and subchondral bone. Symptomatic OA is estimated to affect 9.% of men and 18.0% of women worldwide, is generally more prevalent in Europe and the United States than other parts of the world, and is expected to become the fourth leading cause of disability by the year 2020 due to increase in life expectancy and aging populations.
