Impact loading of articular cartilage leads to post-traumatic osteoarthritis (OA) through its effects on the cells and extracellular matrix (ECM) of the tissue. Studies have shown the level of impact or injurious compression correlates with increased cell death, degradation of the ECM, and detrimental changes in biomechanical properties [1]. Recently, several bioactive agents, such as P188 and IGF-I, have shown promising results by reducing cell death following injurious compression of cartilage explants [2, 3].
