Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of arthritis. It is a joint disease that mostly affects cartilage. In osteoarthritis, the top layer of cartilage breaks down and wears away. This allows bones under the cartilage to rub together. The rubbing causes pain, swelling, and loss of motion of the joint. Over time, bits of bone or cartilage can break off and float inside the joint space, which causes more pain and damage.

This trial is looking for patients with osteoarthritis who have increased risk for heart disease. This would include things such as a history of diabetes, hypertension or high cholesterol. Other risk factors like age, obesity, or blood vessel diseases such as peripheral vascular disease, coronary artery disease or history of stroke may help you qualify for this study.
