  • Publication number: 20190255034
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the use of cyclin-dependent kinase 9 (CDK9) inhibitors to reduce, inhibit and/or prevent cartilage degradation. CDK9 inhibitors can be used to reduce, inhibit and/or prevent cartilage degradation and loss of cartilage viability during allograft storage. CDK9 inhibitors can be used as a post-injury intervention treatment to reduce, inhibit and/or prevent the acute cellular responses that lead to future cartilage degradation and osteoarthritis.
