The Cohort Hip & Cohort Knee (CHECK) is a population-based observational multicenter cohort study of 1002 individuals with early symptomatic osteoarthritis (OA) of knee and/or hip in the Netherlands. The participants were followed for 10 years. The study evaluated clinical, radiographic and biochemical variables in order to establish the course, prognosis and underlying mechanisms of early symptomatic osteoarthritis. The Dutch Artritis Foundation initiated and funded this inception cohort.
