Joint Degeneration: Mouse Models: This announcement solicits proposals of research employing genetically defined and genetically modified mouse models to explore the biological mechanisms underlying non-inflammatory joint degeneration, or osteoarthritis. Inflammatory processes are evident in late stages of osteoarthritis, and are likely to be major contributors to the chronic pain that is the most common symptom of the condition. However, for the purpose of this initiative, osteoarthritis is distinguished from diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, in which inflammation arising from autoimmunity is the primary cause of tissue damage. In contrast, the root causes of joint degeneration in osteoarthritis remain unclear. Increasing knowledge of molecular mechanisms in cartilage and bone biology, along with advances in the genetic manipulation of mice, have yielded new concepts and new animal models that may be relevant to osteoarthritis in humans. This Program Announcement is intended to accelerate the characterization of new models and the testing of hypotheses that could lead to improved diagnosis and treatment of osteoarthritis.
