The most common kind of arthritis — called osteoarthritis — happens when the cartilage that protects the ends of your bones wears down. This leads to symptoms like pain and stiffness. Osteoarthritis can affect any joint in your body, including knees and hips. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in the U.S., affecting more than 70% of adults between 55 and 78 years of age.1
Local doctors are looking for people with osteoarthritis in knees or hips for a clinical research study of an investigational medication for pain. (Investigational means it isn’t approved for use by the public.)
If you qualify for this research study, you may have the opportunity to try this medication or placebo. You may also receive no-cost study-related care, and compensation up to $400 for time and travel. If you’re interested, click the link to the online questionnaire to get started.
