The recently published MOVES Investigation Group clinical arthritis trials showed treatment with glucosamine and chondroitin was as effective in treating knee osteoarthritis as Celebrex.
Published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases, the study documents 606 patients with moderate-to-severe arthritis pain that were treated with the much recommended dietary supplements instead of the COX 2 inhibitor. The arthritis study yielded nearly identical results. There was a 50.1% decrease for the vitamins compared with a 50.2% decrease among patients given Celebrex.
