Two new co-authored review articles on metabolism and OA are now available online.
The first, published in Arthritis & Rheumatology, focuses on how the metabolic syndrome and related conditions contribute to OA pathogenesis. The article spans evidence from clinical studies and animal models to mechanistic evidence involving intra-articular fat tissue and cellular nutrient sensors (e.g., AMPK and Sirtuins).

The second article was published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Research. It is based on topics that were discussed at a workshop presented at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Orthopaedic Research Societyin Orlando, FL. Dr. Ron June and I co-organized the workshop, and we were thrilled to have Drs. Ru Liu-Bryan and Fanxing Long participate. If you missed the meeting, or want a recap, take a look at this article!
