This is a research study looking into a potential new treatment for osteoarthritis pain management in people between the ages of 35 and 70. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in Australia. It occurs when the protective tissue at the ends of bones gradually wears down which can cause pain, stiffness and loss of mobility.
The study treatment aims to reduce moderate to severe pain due to osteoarthritis in the hip and knee joints.
The study would require you to come to the clinic approximately 10 times over an 8-week period. Visits will range between 15 minutes to 90 minute each time you come in. Over the course of the study, we will check your medical history, take your bloods, conduct an ECG, and administer the treatment. You will also need to complete a diary over the course of the study.
You will be reimbursed for your time and expenses related to the research study.
