Associated with the breakdown of cartilage in the joints, osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. Typically caused by aging joints, injury, or obesity, osteoarthritis can occur in any joint in the body. However, it is most commonly found in weight bearing joints such as the hands, knees, hips, and spine.
Osteoarthritis tends to worsen over time, and symptoms include pain, especially during or after movement, and a tender sensitivity to pressure on the joint. Joints may feel stiff or sore especially after a period of inactivity and may become less flexible over time.
We at Artemis Institute for Clinical Research conduct clinical trials for investigative medications for the treatment of osteoarthritis. Qualified research participants will receive financial compensation for their time and travel, study-related medical and psychological evaluations, and the investigative study medication at no cost. Help advance medicine and medical research through participating in our clinical trial!
