“Artho” and “itis” are the two greek words from which the term Arthritis has been derived, meaning joint and inflammation, respectively. Arthritis is a kind of joint disorder characterized by chronic inflammation in one or more joints that usually results in pain and is often disabling. Arthritis is of more than 100 different forms but the most common forms are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Arthritis is associated with pain and inflammation but the exact cause still remains uncertain and no treatment is available for its fundamental causes. Currently, drugs like analgesics, steroids, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory are given to arthritis patients which help in reduction of pain and inflammation. However, they cannot be used for long term due to inadequate pain relief, immune disturbances, and serious gastrointestinal and cardiovascular adverse events. Therefore, herbal therapies are needed with anti-inflammatory properties and minimal side effects. Curcumin, a Turmeric extract, is therefore believed to be the alternative medicine for arthritis. Curcumin do not modulate COX-1 activity, but modify NF-κB signaling, pro inflammatory cytokines such as interleukin production and phospholipase A2, COX-2, and 5-LOX activities. Curcumin also modulates the expressions of various transcription factors involved in energy metabolism such as signal transducer and activator of transcription, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ, and activator protein-1, cAMP responding element binding protein, estrogen response element, and others. As a result, turmeric and its components have been reported to exert beneficial effects on osteoarthritis.
