ADAMTS14 gene polymorphism associated with knee osteoarthritis in Thai women

T. Poonpet, Honsawek, S., Tammachote, N., Kanitnate, S., and Tammachote, R., ADAMTS14 gene polymorphism associated with knee osteoarthritis in Thai women, vol. 12, pp. 5301-5309, 2013.

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most prevalent form of arthritis in the elderly. This disease is characterized by breakdown and loss of articular cartilage due to genetic, mechanical and environmental factors. Although the pathophysiology of OA is not completely known, several candidate genes have been reported to be associated with OA susceptibility. We assessed the association between genetic variation in the ADAMTS14 region and knee osteoarthritis susceptibility in the Thai population.
