Osteoarthritis (OA), also known as degenerative joint disease / degenerative arthritis, is an inflammation of the articular cartilage and sub-chondral bone. OA is actually a collection of diseases rather than one disease per se: can be primary (chronic degenerative disorder related to but not caused by age, with a strong genetic linkage - reports of - 60%) or secondary (caused by injury, infection / inflammation and as a consequence of other chronic diseases).
This report provides the current prevalent population for Osteoarthritis across 12 Major Markets (USA, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Russian Federation, Canada, Brazil, Japan, India and China) split by gender and 5-year age cohort. Along with the current prevalence, the report also contains a disease overview of the risk factors, disease diagnosis and prognosis along with specific variations by geography and ethnicity.
There are a number of conditions that co-occur with OA including:
Congenital joint abnormalities (Marfan syndrome)
Metabolic defects (eg, hemochromatosis, Wilson disease)
Infections (causing post infectious arthritis)
Endocrine and neuropathic diseases
