See If You Or A Loved One Qualify!

    Participation Requirements

    About the Clinical Research Study
    This clinical research study is testing the safety and effectiveness of a new investigational medication, in comparison to a placebo, administered as 2 injections in the Knee, about 6 months apart. Qualified individuals will have the option to participate in a 52-week study period, with approximately 8 in-person visits.

    Participation in the study does not guarantee that individuals will receive the investigational medication. Qualified individuals have a 50/50 chance of getting either the investigational medication or the placebo, and neither you nor the study team will know which of the two you are receiving.

    What is Osteoarthritis?
    Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis, and is the major cause of activity limitation and physical disability in older people. Today, 35 million people (13% of the US population) are 65 and older, and more than half of them have radiological evidence of OA in at least 1 joint. Common symptoms may include:
    • Pain
    • Stiffness
    • A grinding sensation when moving the joints
    • Swelling
    What Is A Clinical Research Study?
    A clinical research study tests the safety and effectiveness of a new investigational medicine in human volunteers. Every investigational medicine goes through the clinical trial process. Therefore, participants play a very important role in advancing medicine for present and future generations.

    What Is An Investigational Medication?
    An investigational medication has been tested in the laboratory, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is allowing it to be tested for safety and efficacy in people in clinical research studies.

    What Is A Placebo?
    A placebo looks like the investigational medication but does not contain any active ingredients.

    Clinical trials are medical research studies designed to test the safety and/or effectiveness of new investigational drugs, devices, or treatments in humans. These studies are conducted worldwide for a range of conditions and illnesses. Learn more about clinical research and participating in a study at About Clinical Trials.
