    Dear Editor,

    Associations of CTX-II with biochemical markers of bone turnover raise questions on its tissue origin: data from CHECK, a cohort study of early osteoarthritis I read with interest this paper by Van Spil et al examining further the osteoarthritis(OA) biomarker CTX-II (C-terminal telopeptide of type II collagen) and note the suspicions of the authors tying this marker to bone metabolism[1]. High correlation wi...
