On the main BBC news tonight, a new injection to counter OA affects and repair tissue, I didn't get all the details but trials starting 2018, what good news.

    Did I miss ir? I didn't see anything. Nor is there anything on the ARUK website. Was it just a happy dream, Airwave :animal_busy:

    It was on the news, American trials I believe. I expect the newsroom finds other things to talk about, it went with another story about 'superagers' or those that live healthly into their old age.

    I know this is the Trump era of fake but it did happen! A bit like the 'X Files', its out there somewhere!

    Getting ill is one of the occupational hazards of being alive and the major boon of being ill is that one gets better. I don't regard my arthritis as an illness because it fails that vital criteria; yes, it is life-affecting, life-changing, life-challenging and life-spoiling but so what? Life is a lottery one has to play because two people, either through accident or choice, had a child.

    I have seen for myself the benefits of faster treatment for the auto-immune kinds and that has to be a good thing. I am sure there will be a breakthrough for OA one day and hope will be offered to many which can only be another good thing. DD

    PS I have a glue gun! We don't have the kind of shop you mentioned in my town but, on doing research in a local hardware store (a gem of a place) and receiving some good advice I walked out with £9.00 worth of hot glue gun. Experiments will shortly commence!

    The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.

    Thanks for the link, Elna.

    I'd heard the news item but don't recall arthritis being mentioned. This article does mention it. However, I think I'm with the woman who, asked about the secret of her remarkable agility, advised choosing one's parents carefully :lol:

    Yes, thats the article, injecting cells into the joints. It does give hope that at least something is happening for the future if not for us.
