Osteoarthritis constitutes a major burden for health care besides posing great impediments to quality of life in progressively widening population of the aged. There have been on-going efforts to rationally address the preventive and corrective interventions. Destruction of articular cartilage is a cardinal consideration in this regard. The dilemma persists over that being a cause or effect of the osteoarthritic syndrome. The aging diseases are typically accompanied by comorbidities and decline in physiological functions. This article appraises the pathological process of cartilage destruction in such context to reflect on interventional perspectives ahead.
