Microcapsules Target Arthritic Cartilage

Researchers at Queen Mary University of London have developed a new technique for delivering protein molecules to cartilage affected by osteoarthritis. When delivered in this manner, the protein (CNP) can reduce and possibly repair the damage caused by arthritic inflammation. New ‘microcapsules’ have potential to repair damage caused by osteoarthritis – [eurekalert.org] The researchers constructed […]
