As the 2.5-mg dose of tanezumab didn't meet one of the three coprimary endpoints, further hypothesis testing was not possible, but exploratory findings suggested that tanezumab at 2.5 mg or 5 mg yielded higher proportions of patients with reductions from baseline in WOMAC pain scores when compared with placebo.
Samut et al.[8] found a significant decrease in the VAS and WOMAC subscores and a significant increase in the functionality and muscle strength in both isokinetic end aerobic exercise group.

It shows there pre- and post-comparison of the score of the WOMAC and tug for both the groups [Table 1].
Figures that were severely skewed or that indicated kurtosis (the duration of the OA, pain scores, functional scores, and total WOMAC scores) were transformed into natural logarithm (Ln).
Furthermore, pain can be related to the progression of structural changes and cartilage degradation of OA [21], as we have showed in this study that the KL grade was also independently associated with WOMAC scores.
PainDETECT score was weakly and positively correlated with the VAS at rest and at movement (r=0.272, p=0.044, and r=0.333, p<0.001), WOMAC pain score (r=0.358, p<0.001), WOMAC physical function score (r=0.220, p=0.022) and WOMAC total score (r=0.280, p=0.003).
The pain visual analogue scale (PVAS), and the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) pain scores were the main measures used for the meta-analysis.
In this randomized controlled trial, in early OA that failed conservative intervention, the clinical outcomes [primary endpoint: the need for total knee arthroplasty (TKA); secondary endpoint: WOMAC scores] following a combination of arthroscopic microdrilling mesenchymal cell stimulation (MCS) and repeated intra articular (IA) autologous activated peripheral blood stem cells (AAPBSCs) with and without growth factor addition (GFA) along with hyaluronic acid (HA) versus IA-HA alone were evaluated.
