    These studies seem to tell us the mode of action of
    glucosamine in arthritis is the SAME as the mode of action
    of indocin or indomethacine or .. aspirin .. or .. tagamet
    or .. metal binding.

    <<snip>> Glucosamine is a precursor to a molecule called a
    glycosaminoglycan-this molecule is used in the formation and
    repair of cartilage. Chondroitin is the most abundant
    glycosaminoglycan in cartilage and is responsible for the
    resiliency of cartilage. <<snip>>

    <<snip>> These outcomes confirm the antioxidant properties
    of GAGs (glycosaminoglycans) and further support the
    hypothesis that these molecules may function as metal
    chelators. <<snip>>
