Glucosamine Sulphate for Osteoarthritis. The objective of this book is to provide a brief current overview of the role of glucosamine sulphate in the treatment of osteoarthritis. Glucosamine sulphate is now approved in many EC countries as a licensed medicinal product.
This book is primarily intended for use by healthcare professionals, including medical practitioners, pharmacists, physiotherapists, osteopaths and nursing staff.
However, this book should also provide a source of useful information about glucosamine sulphate and osteoarthritis for individuals without formal medical or technical background.
