Abstract

DAR was well tolerated by the experimental animals, but did not produce significant changes in the synthesis or turnover of proteoglycans. The slight reduction in proteoglycan synthesis may prove to be biologically significant after chronic dosing. DAR's effects on the hydroxyproline and glycosaminoglycan content suggest, however, that it must influence the swelling of cartilage and loss of glycosaminoglycan. This indicates that small changes can translate, to significant differences in cartilage composition over an 11-week time period.
