A meta-analysis, published in the BMJ September 16, 2010, made from 10 trials, confirms the inefficiency of glucosamine and chondroïtin in the treatment of osteoarthritis of hip and knee: compared to placebo, they do not attenuate the pain and do not prevent the narrowing of joint space.
This result confirms what was already said in Pharmacorama, see here and there.
