123. Maintenance of the paraspinal muscles may protect against radiographic knee osteoarthritis (PubMed)

Maintenance of the paraspinal muscles may protect against radiographic knee osteoarthritis Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is an increasing health problem worldwide. So far, only obesity and quadriceps weakness are identified as modifiable risk factors for knee OA. Core muscle strengthening is becoming increasingly popular among older adults because of its ability to enhance the activities of daily living during old age. This study investigated the associations of the size and quality of the abdominal (...) trunk muscles with radiographic knee osteoarthritis (RKOA).From 2012 to 2016, data were collected from 146 males and 135 females (age 63.9±13.4 years, BMI 23.2±3.8 kg/m2) at annual musculoskeletal examinations, including knee radiographs and body composition analyses, by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. Cross-sectional areas of abdominal trunk muscles were measured using a single-slice computed tomography scan image obtained at the level of the umbilicus.The prevalence of RKOA was 21.2% in males

126. Clinical significance of Matrilin-3 gene polymorphism in Egyptian patients with primary knee osteoarthritis (PubMed)

Clinical significance of Matrilin-3 gene polymorphism in Egyptian patients with primary knee osteoarthritis Osteoarthritis (OA) is a multifactorial, degenerative, and inflammatory disorder of joints causing damage of the articular cartilage, formation of osteophytes, and eburination of the subchondral bone. Matrilin-3 (MATN-3) is a non-collagenous oligomeric extracellular matrix protein (ECM), which is the smallest member of the matrilin family. This study was conducted to identify (...) the potential association and clinical significance of MATN-3 rs8176070 (SNP6) polymorphism in a series of Egyptian patients with primary knee OA.Polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) was used to determine genotypes of MATN-3 SNP6 for 50 primary knee OA patients in addition to 50 healthy subjects of the same sex and age range. Full history was obtained from OA patients, followed by clinical examination, together with clinical assessment of the severity of knee OA

Genetic influence of growth and differentiation factor 5 gene polymorphism (+104T/C) on the development of knee osteoarthritis and its association with disease severity The growth and differentiation factor 5 (GDF5) gene is recognized for its role in the development, repair, and maintenance of cartilage and bone. The present case-control study was conducted to detect the genetic association between GDF5 (+104T/C) single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and primary knee osteoarthritis (KOA (...) ), as well as the possible association of SNP with the severity of KOA.The study included 50 patients with primary KOA and 50 healthy control subjects. The severity of the disease was assessed by using the Kellgren-Laurence (K-L) grading system and aided by the Western Ontario & McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) score, visual analog scale (VAS) score, and tenderness score. The genetic association of the SNP with primary KOA was assessed by means of the TaqMan® allelic discrimination
