Arthritis Studies

According to the Arthritis Foundation, the disease affects 50 million Americans. Arthritis actually includes more than 100 different diseases or conditions, all musculoskeletal disorders.

Types of Arthritis

The most common arthritis diseases are osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and juvenile arthritis (JA).

Most people think of osteoarthritis when considering arthritis, as it is the most commonly occurring. OA is a progressive degenerative disease characterized by the breakdown of joint cartilage.

A systemic disease, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the body’s own tissues. This causes fluid to build in the joints, resulting in pain and inflammation throughout the body.

Juvenile arthritis references a number of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases that develop in children ages 16 and under.

Knee Pain

Many people suffer from general knee pain, and there can be a number of causes for it. Most types of arthritis can affect the knee, causing pain and swelling.

  • Osteoarthritis breaks down cartilage in the areas where bones meet, or joints. This breakdown causes stiffness, pain, and loss of movement in the joint where the bones rub against each other.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis causes the body's immune system to attack the synovium – a thin membrane that lines joints – thus causing inflammation, pain, swelling, loss of function, and other side effects.

Aventiv is currently conducting a study specifically focused on treating and alleviating the symptoms of knee pain. Complete our volunteer form below to see if you qualify.
