Synoviology: a new chapter entitled to joints care

Keywords: Drugs, Joint disease, Synovial membrane, Therapy

Abstract

In order to extensively investigate on the synovial membrane – related diseases, we outlined a specific medical branch named “Synoviology”, targeted to the physiopathology and therapy of synovial membrane dysfunction. We searched Pubmed/Medline using the terms “synovial disease”, “therapy”, “synovial membrane”, “joints” and “drugs”, alone and combined. Selected papers from 1960 to 2015 were chosen based on their content (evidence-based quality and reliability). Clinical and experimental articles were included. Viscosupplementation with structurally different hyaluronic acid compounds, for restoration of the synovial membrane, and cartilage. The impact of other old and new medical treatments either locally or systemically administered was also included. Synoviology integrates biological, clinical and biochemical info for the progress of new therapeutic options in osteo-articular pathology.
