In a recent medical journal article which reviewed the findings of two published, randomized clinical trials of glucosamine HCl and chondroitin sulfate or chondroitin sulfate alone, renowned orthopedic surgeon, Nicholas DiNubile, MD, commented that “patient safety and a significant degree of efficacy are excellent reasons to recommend glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate in combination, to patients”. In the medical practice article, he mentioned Cosamin®DS by name, pointing out to physician and surgeon readers, that if they want to reproduce the results of the clinical trials in their practice, “brand does matter”. *
