Clinical Study Details
Do you have pain from osteoarthritis of the knee?
Osteoarthritis is a common degenerative joint disorder. Treatment for OA primarily involves a combination of exercise and lifestyle modification, drug treatment, supplementation with glucosamine or chondroitin sulphate, and surgical joint replacement. Among drug treatments, corticosteroids are routinely given by an injection into the joint for the treatment of chronic knee joint diseases to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and improve mobility.
A limitation of such joint injection with corticosteroids is the modest duration of treatment effect, which often lasts for only 2 to 4 weeks. Repeat injections are possible in the same joint, but there are limited data on the safety and duration of the effectiveness of this procedure.
AusTrials is conducting a clinical trial testing a new longer acting joint injection for osteoarthritis of the knee in patients who are still experiencing pain. X-rays will be performed to see to assess the severity of any joint damage. The study is assessing if the new corticosteroid injection provides both short-term and sustained pain and symptom relief for up to 6 months in patients with knee OA pain.
You may be able to take part in the study if you:
- Are 40 years of age or older, male or female
- Have been diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis
- Have continued to experience pain for at least 6 months
- Have a normal to moderately high weight (Body Mass Index less than 40)
- Are not using regular non-steroidal analgesic (eg ibuprofen) or some opioid medications.
