Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common kind of arthritis and primarily affects the large,
weight bearing joints (including the knees, lower back, hips, neck and the feet) and the
joints in the hands. OA results from the breakdown of cartilage in joints, leading to joint
pain and damage. It affects about 8 million people in the United Kingdom and nearly 27
million people in the United States, most of whom are over the age of 45.
This study aim to determine if Aquamin (as AquaCal and AquaPT) affects molecules of
inflammation in the blood of osteoarthritis and healthy subjects.
