How does nSTRIDE work?

In osteoarthritis of the knee, bad proteins (inflammatory cytokines) are in higher concentration than good proteins (anti-inflammatory cytokines). The imbalance of proteins leads to inflammation and the gradual break down of cartilage in the knee. nSTRIDE APS contains concentrated anti-inflammatory proteins, which once injected into the knee cartilage it inhibits the activity of inflammatory proteins in the osteoarthritic knee. As a result, this reduces inflammation and slows down or halts the natural deterioration of the knee cartilage.

nSTRIDE is also rich in anabolic proteins, which stimulate the production of cartilage. By reducing inflammation and stimulating repair of the damaged cartilage tissue, it helps slow down or reverse the progression of osteoarthritis. Although nSTRIDE was initially indicated for treating knee osteoarthritis only, it is currently being reviewed and is due to be approved to treat osteoarthritis in other joints.
