Sabine Chmelar published – in a shared first authorship with Elisabeth Höld – the protocol of the NUMOQUA study in the journal "Trials".

The study aims to investigate the implementation of a nutrition therapy combined with an evidence-based training program in patients with knee osteoarthritis. The dissertation project of Sabine Chmelar analyses the effects of this therapy regime on nutritional status, oxidative stress parameters and inflammatory biomarkers.
