Abstract

Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are being used by many patients for the treatment of osteoarthritis. Despite a number of studies supporting efficacy of these agents for palliation of joint pain in patients with osteoarthritis, the American College of Rheumatology Subcommittee on Osteoarthritis believes that it is too early to issue recommendations for use. Currently, the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases in collaboration with the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine have begun a pivotal study to thoroughly evaluate these agents.
