Do you or a loved one suffer from Osteoarthritis (OA)?
This clinical research study is looking at the safety and effectiveness of an investigational treatment for people with osteoarthritis.
Would you like to take part?
As a volunteer in a research study, you will receive study-related medical care from the study doctor and regular follow up on your OA to monitor the effectiveness and safety of the investigational treatment. The results of this research will be used to find out if the experimental treatment being studied will be of benefit to others with OA or not, and whether it will be approved and available as a treatment for all Canadians with OA. Study volunteers are an important part of moving medical care forward.

- Male or female over the age of 18
- Diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee
- Documented history that acetaminophen therapy has not provided sufficient pain relief
- Willing to discontinue all pain medications except rescue medications except as permitted by protocol
You may not qualify to participate if you:
- Have a history of diseases other than OA that can cause painful joints (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, Paget’s disease etc.)
- Have a history of significant trauma or surgery to a knee, hip or shoulder within the previous year
