Hematopoietic progenitors, fibroblasts, chondrocytes, astrocytes, smooth muscle cells, Kaposi's sarcoma, neurons, tumor cells

Regulates hematopoietic cell growth and differentiation; modulates cell growth and differentiation in neurogenesis and osteogenesis; inhibits tumor growth; stimulates fiboblasts, smooth muscle cell, and Kaposi's sarcoma proliferation; induces cytokine expression by endothelial cells; induces LDL-R expression

Elevated levels seen in SLE and rheumatoid arthritis; in animal models, increases platelets without causing anemias

Osteoarthritis

Thank you for deciding to learn more about the disorder, Osteoarthritis. Inside these pages, you will learn what it is, who is most at risk for developing it, what causes it, and some treatment plans to help those that do have it feel better. While there is no definitive “cure” for Osteoarthritis, there are ways in which individuals can improve their quality of life and change the discomfort level to one that can be tolerated on a daily basis.
