Nanoparticles Deliver siRNA to Prevent Joint Damage, Hopefully Treat Osteoarthritis

As osteoarthritis wears away at joint cartilage, there are no available drugs to stop the process. Steroid injections help to reduce inflammation in the area, but they get washed away by the body in a short amount of time and the process continues. Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis have now created nanoparticles that […] This post Nanoparticles Deliver siRNA to Prevent Joint Damage, Hopefully Treat Osteoarthritis appeared first on Medgadget.
