An analysis of data from the Rotterdam cohort study involving 2,921 patients found that those with knee osteoarthritis who took statins experienced slower radiographic progression compared with those who didn't take statins. Statin use, however, failed to slow disease progression in patients with hip osteoarthritis. The findings appeared in Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases.
