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
