'This is the first time we have been able to use synovial fluid from human osteoarthritis patients to excite sensory nerve cells, making it more clinically-relevant than mouse studies alone, and so will hopefully help translating treatments from bench to bedside,' says Dr Ewan St John Smith from the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Cambridge.

The stimulation intensity was 10-30 mA for sensory nerve conduction studies and 10-50 mA for motor nerve conduction studies.
Previously, we found that the sensory nerve tract preimplanted in the tissue-engineered bone (TEB) could significantly improve osteogenesis of the TEB [4, 5], but the underlying mechanism was still largely unknown.
Whilst recent studies have established good diagnostic utility and reproducibility for sensory nerve evaluation in the skin and cornea, there has been limited application of these techniques in the clinic [3].
In a sensory nerve conduction study (NCS), we attempted to derive sensory nerve action potentials (SNAPs) of the thumb, index, and middle fingers.
Antidromic sensory nerve action potentials (SNAP) for median and ulnar sensory nerves were recorded with standard ring electrodes.

Compound muscle action potential (CMAP) (normal > 6.8 mV), motor nerve conduction velocity (M-NCV) (normal > 49.4 m/sec), motor distal latency (normal < 3.8 msec), sensory nerve action potential (SNAP) (normal > 10 [micro]V), and sensory nerve conduction velocity (SNCV) (normal > 40.4 m/sec) were measured.
