Joint Disease | Arthritis | Pain Models
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Osteoarthritis (OA) are both common joint disease which can elicit chronic disabling pain in patients. RA is distinguished by inflammation and synovitis leading to joint destruction, whereas OA is a degenerative condition involving chondrocyte death and cartilage erosion affecting the entire joint structure.
At MD Biosciences, we offer pain models to assess joint pain conditions including both CFA and CIA models, standard models for RA. The monosodium iodoacetate (MIA) model for OA pain contains both an inflammatory and neuropathic pain component.
