|Knee Osteoarthritis HA Injection One Injection Per Week for Five Week Synovial Fluid Composition Synovial Fluid Lubrication||Other: Synovial fluid composition and lubrication analysis|
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Actual Enrollment :||55 participants|
|Official Title:||Boundary Lubrication of Synovial Fluid Molecules and Its Effect on the Surrounding Cells and Tissues|
|Study Start Date :||April 2008|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||December 2008|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||June 2009|
Patients with osteoarthritis of knee. They are going to received HA injection 1 vial per week for 5 weeks.
Other: Synovial fluid composition and lubrication analysis
Before HA injection, synovial fluid must be drawn to increase treatment effectiveness. The drawn synovial fluid was then analyzed in the lab. There was no influence for patients enrolled because the drawn synovial fluid would usually be discarded.
- Synovial fluid HA and albumin concentration; synovial fluid lubrication [ Time Frame: 1 wk, 2 wk, 3 wk, 4 wk, 5 wk ]
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
