Osteoarthritis of the knee
We are currently recruiting for a study for Osteoarthritis of the knee
Osteoarthritis is the wearing down of the cartilage in the joint, this occurs gradually and worsens over time. It is one of the leading causes of pain and loss of function. Currently, the only treatment options available to patients are pain medication, physiotherapy and joint replacement.
The purpose of the trial is to determine if the study drug promotes regeneration of the cartilage tissue in the knee, its ability to decrease the patient’s pain and improve overall knee function.
Are you currently aged between 40-75?
Have Been diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee for at least 6 months?
are in moderate to severe pain?
If you have answered YES to the questions above, you may be eligible to be part of a new trial being held in Christchurch. This trial is looking to determine if the study drug, given by injection, promotes regeneration of the cartilage tissue in the knee, and its ability to decrease the patient’s pain, and improve overall knee function
