Tennis Elbow

Study Name: Tennis Elbow

Clinics: Manchester EPU

Therapy Area: Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)

Gender and Age: Males & Females Aged 18 - 70

Description: 

MAC Clinical Research is currently conducting a clinical trial to assess a potential new treatment for lateral epicondylitis also known as tennis elbow.

 

Tennis elbow is the term used to describe pain around the outside of the elbow most often caused by strenuous overuse of the muscles and tendons of the forearm, near the elbow joint.

 

The long-term benefit of current therapies is uncertain, and the study drug is being developed in the hope of providing a more reliable treatment option than those currently available. If proven effective it may be given at the time of first diagnosis, so that recovery can begin as soon as possible.

 

The study involves 9 visits to the Manchester clinic over approx. 16 weeks.

Reimbursement: £1,460

  • Male or female aged 18 to 70
