I saw this in a newspaper today but sadly couldn't buy it as I didn't have enough money left, so thanks for posting about it here. Really encouraging news.

I read about it today in the paper but also noticed that the above link was on FB (Facebook) so thought perhaps it may be useful/helpful to some people who look in here. :)

If you wish to learn more or ask any questions, the helplines (Tel no at top of the page) are waiting for your call. :)

A study of 1,683 mostly women patients with an average age of 63 found that for every three years of treatment, the drug slowed progression of the disease by a year.

from the express online site
http://www.express.co.uk/posts/view/309 ... or-1-a-day

This from Arthritis Research UK -
The phase-III study involved 1,683 men and women, all of whom were aged 50 or above and had been diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee.

Are there two trials here with the same amount of people, or a typo all sounds a little confusing. Can anyone shed some light on here?

This is a link I found:

http://www.controlled-trials.com/ISRCTN41323372

Why don't you call the helplines with your question, Sturge?

Hi,
I read this with interest as I'm already taking Strontium Ranelate for my OP. To think it might help my OA is fantastic.
However my GP wouldn't prescribe this because of cost but my consultant did.
It will depend on NICE and if they will pass this as a drug for OA.
Lets hope so......and soon.
May
