Polymyalgia Rheumatica

We are currently recruiting for a study for Polymyalgia Rheumatica

PMR (Polymyalgia Rheumatica) is an inflammatory condition that typically causes pain and stiffness in the neck, shoulders, and/or hips. Some people may also feel radiating pain in the upper arms, thighs and lower back. Symptoms can come on suddenly and generally occur in later life (after the age of 50) and is most common in women.

The AIM-PMR Study is evaluating an investigational medication to see if it may alleviate symptoms of polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) in people who are currently taking glucocorticoids (such as prednisone). If effective, this may allow participants to taper off prednisone and prevent further side effects from long-term prednisone use.
