Description:

Prevention of Osteoarthritis Under the Light of Phenotypes
Given our inability to cure osteoarthritis (OA) today, the only way to act effectively is the primary/secondary prevention of the illness. However, it is a real challenge to disseminate prevention messages early in life when the disease itself often only appears late in life. Current research to try to phenotype the disease is an opportunity to improve prevention by delivering specific messages to specific populations. The purpose of this lecture is to discuss the optimization of OA prevention based on the recent attempts to delineate OA phenotypes.
