About 27 million people in the United States have osteoarthritis, an incurable condition with few effective treatments beyond pain control.

Some observational evidence suggests that vitamin D supplements might slow progression of the disease. But a two-year randomised placebo-controlled study found that vitamin D did not reduce knee pain or restore cartilage.

In an article published in The Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers described a study of 146 men and women with painful knee arthritis who were randomly assigned to take vitamin D supplements or placebos.
