Personalized Therapies for OA: Can Biomarkers Get Us There?
Anne-Christine Bay-Jensen, mMBA, MSc, PhD - Nordic Bioscience

It is generally accepted in the OA field that OA patients are different in their etiology and progression of disease, hampering care of patient. Are there examples in the field where biochemical markers have been used to direct patient care? Lessons to be learned from other fields?
