OARSI Issues White Paper to the FDA

OARSI submitted a white paper asking the FDA to consider OA as a serious disease. OARSI is concerned about the growing population of OA patients, many of whom may experience progressive disability and decreased quality of life. The detailed paper outlines the evidence, demonstrating that OA fulfills the definition of seriousness used in the guidance regarding accelerated approvals by the FDA.

The white paper addresses:

  • The increasing prevalence of OA along with the risk factors that have been identified 
  • The associated morbidity and severity of the disease 
  • Newly developed evidence of an increased mortality risk in the US in OA patients
