Evaluating the Effects of Biologic Treatments in the Knee.

What is it about?

This article provides clear definitions of the specific subjective and objective outcomes we need to evaluate biologics for knee pathology

Why is it important?

This article is important because biologics are increasingly used to treat knee pathology. Further definition of ways to objectively and subjectively evaluate the effects of biologics will better define how biologics work and which biologic treatments do not work to treat knee pathology.
