Osteoarthritis Pain of the Knee

Study Name: OSTEOARTHRITIS -​ KNEE

Clinics: Manchester

Therapy Area: Osteoarthritis

Gender and Age: Males & Females aged 18-80

Description: 

MAC Clinical Research is currently conducting a clinical research study into a potential new medication for the treatment of Osteoarthritis of the knee.

Osteoarthritis is a condition that causes joints to become painful and stiff. It's the most common type of arthritis in the UK. Over 8 million people in the UK are affected by joint pain caused by this condition. It usually affects the, hips, knees, hands, feet and spine.

 

Although there are currently treatments available, there is a great medical need for medications with improved, more sustained effects on pain and stiffness and lesser side effects. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and opioids provide some relief from mild to moderate chronic pain. However, only half of patients treated will achieve enough pain relief. These drugs also cause many side effects.

 

MAC Clinical Research is assessing a treatment known as MEDI7352. This is a novel molecule that can potentially assist with the reversal of pain in Arthritis.

The main objective of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of MEDI7352 in participants with painful Osteoarthritis of the knee.
