All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved by regulatory authorities for doctors to prescribe to patients. Without people taking part in these studies, we would have no new treatments. The volunteers who participate in clinical research studies play a major role in helping to advance medicine.
The Osteoarthritis of the Knee Study will include various visits to a study clinic in your area and follow up phone calls at designated times.
