Osteoarthritis Understanding

Osteoarthritis: Overview

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis. Some people call it degenerative joint disease or “wear and tear” arthritis. It occurs most frequently in the hands, hips, and knees. Osteoarthritis is most likely to affect the joints that bear most of weight, such as the knees and feet. Joints that the person use a lot in everyday life, such as the joints of the hand, are also commonly affected.


The main symptoms of osteoarthritis are pain and sometimes stiffness in the affected joints. The pain tends to be worse when the person move the joint or at the end of the day. Osteoarthritis is a leading cause of disability and source of societal cost in older adults. With an ageing and increasingly obese population, this syndrome is becoming even more prevalent than in previous decades.


"Osteoarthritis - Pipeline Insight, 2022" report by DelveInsight outlays comprehensive insights of present scenario and growth prospects across the indication. A detailed picture of the Osteoarthritis pipeline landscape is provided which includes the disease overview and Osteoarthritis treatment guidelines. The assessment part of the report embraces, in depth Osteoarthritis commercial assessment and clinical assessment of the pipeline products under development. In the report, detailed description of the drug is given which includes mechanism of action of the drug, clinical studies, NDA approvals (if any), and product development activities comprising the technology, Osteoarthritis collaborations, licensing, mergers and acquisition, funding, designations and other product related details.

Report Highlights

  • The companies and academics are working to assess challenges and seek opportunities that could influence R&D Osteoarthritis. The therapies under development are focused on novel approaches to treat/improve Osteoarthritis.
  • In January 2021 Apollomics, Inc., an innovative biopharmaceutical company committed to the discovery and development of mono- and combination- oncology therapies, and GlycoMimetics announced APL-106 (uproleselan) has been granted Breakthrough Therapy Designation (BTD) from the China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) Center for Drug Evaluation (CDE) for the treatment of relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
  • In January 2022, Astex Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that the European Commission (EC) has granted orphan-drug designation (ODD) to the oral fixed dose combination of decitabine and cedazuridine (ASTX727) for the treatment of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).

Osteoarthritis Emerging Drugs

Lorecivivint: Biosplice Therapeutics

Lorecivivint (SM04690) is a small-molecule CLK/DYRK1A inhibitor that modulates Wnt and inflammatory pathways and is in development as a potential disease-modifying osteoarthritis drug. Vehicle-controlled preclinical data suggest that lorecivivint has a dual mechanism of action with three potential effects on joint health: reduction of inflammation, slowing of cartilage breakdown, and generation of cartilage. The drug is currently in Phase III stage of clinical trial evaluation to treat the patients suffering from osteoarthritis


CYP 004: Cynata Therapeutics

Cynata’s CYP-004 MSC product is the subject of a Phase III clinical trial being sponsored by the University of Sydney and funded by an Australian Government National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) competitive Project Grant in addition to in-kind contributions from participating institutions. Cynata will supply Cymerus MSCs for use in the trial and will not be required to contribute any cash to fund the project.  The clinical trial commenced in late 2020 and is entitled Stem Cells as a symptom- and strUcture-modifying Treatment for medial tibiofemoral OsteoaRthritis (SCUlpTOR): a randomised placebo-controlled trial


JTA-004: Bone Therapeutics

JTA-004 is Bone Therapeutics’ next generation of intra-articular injectable, which is currently in phase III development for the treatment of osteoarthritic pain in the knee. Consisting of a unique patented mix of plasma proteins, hyaluronic acid - a natural component of knee synovial fluid, and a fast-acting analgesic, JTA-004 intends to provide added lubrication and protection to the cartilage of the arthritic joint and to alleviate osteoarthritic pain. In a phase II study involving 164 patients, JTA-004 showed an improved pain relief at 3 and 6 months compared to Hylan G-F 20, the global market leader in osteoarthritis treatment.


SMUP-IA-01: Medipost

SMUP-IA-01, SMUP allogeneic umbilical cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells, is currently under development for the treatment and prevention of Osteoarthritis. In SMUP-IA-01’s phase I clinical trials in Korea, 12 patients with knee osteoarthritis were given a single injection into their knee joint cavity at Seoul National University Hospital. The response to the drug was then evaluated for 6 months, and the results were shown to demonstrate the safety and improvement of joint function and pain.


TTAX03: Tissue Tech

TTAX03 is a sterile, lyophilized and micronized particulate human Amniotic and umbilical cord co product manufactured using aseptic processing followed by terminal sterilization by gamma irradiation in compliance with current Good Tissue Practices (cGTP) and current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) to preserve extracellular matrices and growth factors/cytokines therein without any living cells. TTAX03 is currently being investigated in Phase II stage of development for the treatment of patients with knee osteoarthritis
