Cartilage will roughen, fray, develop ulcers, and allow joint fluid to leak into subchondral bone, causing cysts to form in the marrow. Subchondral bone (that is, bone to which cartilage is attached) may develop tiny fractures, sprout jagged spurs, form calluses, and harden. Synovial cells may begin to form tiny pellets of bone and connective tissue called osteophytes. These collect in synovial fluid and peripheral areas of the joint, causing further damage. Synovial membranes thicken, reducing the joint space.

Europeans and Native Americans had long used willow bark tea to relieve pain, with significant, albeit limited success. But this mild folk remedy turned out to be the start of something stronger, in both its pharmacological effects and its medical significance.

In a second study, Prilosec outperformed misoprostol. 26 Misoprostol decreases production of gastric acid and increases production of gastric mucus. Ironically, it can also cause adverse gastrointestinal and menstrual side effects, among others. Arthrotec, a new drug approved in dozens of countries, combines the NSAID diclofenac and misoprostol in one pill. As of this writing, Arthrotec was under review by the FDA, with approval expected before 1999.
