Arthritis, Diet, and Activity Promotion Trial (ADAPT)

 Long Name: Arthritis, Diet, and Activity Promotion Trial (ADAPT)

The ADAPT study found that participants in an 18-month program of exercise and a calorie-restricted diet showed a 24% improvement in physical function and a 30.3% decrease in knee pain. These improvements were far superior to those seen in patients relegated to exercise only or to diet only as well as those seen in the control group. The results are reported in the May 2004 issue of Arthritis & Rheumatism by Dr Stephen Messier (Wake-Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC) and colleagues.
