Do You Qualify for an OA Clinical Trial?
This is a great question, because a clinically relevant diagnosis alone won’t qualify you for one of our osteoarthritis clinical trials. This is because each study has specific qualification criteria. For example, an applicant who has OA may be ineligible for a given study due to a specific medication they have taken before.
We can’t possibly list everything on this page, but here are a few things to keep in mind if you want to participate in an OA clinical trial:
- We’re enrolling people with a clinical diagnosis of osteoarthritis.
- Health insurance is not required to be eligible for a research study.
- Applicants must be willing and able to comply with the protocol and all other study requirements.
- Pregnant or expecting applicants won’t be eligible for enrollment.
Compensation for Clinical Trial Participation
Did you know that participating in an osteoarthritis clinical trial grants you access to premium-quality healthcare free of charge? All study-related care including physical examinations, laboratory services and study medications will be provided to participants for free.
Most osteoarthritis clinical trials offer a stipend to participants who complete the study. Not only are you helping improve future medications for OA, but you could receive compensation for your participation. The stipend offered will vary depending on the type of clinical study being conducted.
Osteoarthritis (OA) Signs & Symptoms
The most common symptom associated with osteoarthritis is pain and aching in the joints. The chronic joint pain of OA is made worse by movement and natural wear and tear from use. While some patients find momentary relief from keeping joints immobile, they can become significantly stiff after resting. Symptoms of osteoarthritis include:
- Joint pain
- Bone spurs
- Morning stiffness
- Joint deformity
