OA research traditionally focuses on understanding events that occur within the degenerated articular cartilage whereas changes in the synovial membrane are largely neglected. However, inflammatory changes do occur in the synovium that may contribute to the overall effects observed in at least a subsets of OA patients. This implicates that the inflammatory and degradative activities of synoviocytes represents an interesting (therapeutic) target in OA research.
