Cartilage which is a connective tissue without blood vessels, nerve and lymph, is an important component of synovial joint. Cartilage can be divided into three categories according to the difference of intercellular substance, which are hyaline cartilage, fibrocartilage and elastic cartilage. Chondrocytes are the only cells exist in cartilage that are embedded in the extracellular matrix (ECM). Cartilage ECM is synthesized by chondrocytes and consists of a collagenous network, which is composed of type II collagen, glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and various proteoglycans. Impaired cartilage integrity not only affects its function, but also adversely affects the state or metabolic activity of neighboring cells and tissues. Cartilage plays a variety of roles in the human body, including the loading of joints and intervertebral discs, the lubrication of joints, the support of the trachea, etc. Due to the important position of cartilage in the human body, there are many kinds of diseases related to cartilage, including developmental disorders, osteochondritis dissecans, Relapsing polychondritis, chondrocalcinosis, osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Since there is no nerve in the cartilage, symptoms usually appear only after the matrix structure is severely damaged. Therefore, the application of biomarkers in cartilage disease is of great significance. Arthritis is a disease that develops in a large number of people, and its main symptoms are joint pain and stiffness. There are more than 100 types of arthritis, the most common of which are OA and RA. OA is the most common joint disease associated with a variety of risk factors, including aging, joint trauma, and obesity. RA is a complex inflammatory disease associated with autoimmunity. Various biomarkers related to cartilage diseases and arthritis have been found, such as hyaluronic acid (HA), high motility group box 1 protein (HMGB1), cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP), chondroitin sulfate 846 epitope (CS846), etc.
