Is your knee working as it should?
Knee osteoarthritis is a common form of arthritis. It affects millions of people worldwide. The primary symptoms of osteoarthritis are pain with the use of the knee joint (and later on at rest), as well as stiffness, tenderness, loss of flexibility, and swelling. Answer a few questions to see if you’re eligible for clinical trials that are evaluating investigational treatments with the goal of reducing pain and slowing the progression of knee osteoarthritis.
We’re conducting a program of clinical trials with the aim of developing the next generation of knee osteoarthritis treatments. Current treatments available for knee osteoarthritis only focus on symptomatic relief. In some cases, knee replacement surgery is required. However, these options don’t target the root cause of osteoarthritis, so a different approach to treating the condition is needed. This program of clinical trials includes investigational drugs that will target cartilage regeneration and preservation, as well as pain and inflammation reduction.
