Brown Algae Could Help Treat Osteoarthritis Itself, not Its Symptoms
A new research from Switzerland suggests that a substance extracted from brown algae could potentially treat osteoarthritis. The research was led by Professor Marcy Zenobi-Wong from the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH), and Dr. Katharina Maniura, from Empa.
With the help of the experiments in vitro, the scientists discovered that polysaccharide alginate derivatives extracted from the stems of brown algae Laminaria hyperborean can strop joint cartilage deterioration.
The researchers believe that development of a clinical solution target the condition itself, not its symptoms, would greatly improve the quality of life, as well as allow people with the disease to avoid complications that one day could lead to disability and surgery of joint replacement.
