Clinical trials seek to measure the efficacy of new drug and device treatments for medical conditions including osteoarthritis. OsteoarthritisTrials.org seeks to connect diagnosed arthritis patients with clinical trial sites in their local area, whose clinical trials they may qualify for based on initial pre-screening questions. If no qualifying local trial is currently available, we will alert you if and when a trial that matches your conditions is added to our database. All pre-screen answers are strictly confidential and data is used only for the purpose of matching you with osteoarthritis clinical trials. Please see our privacy policy for more information.

Clinical Trials for Osteoarthritis

Nurse and patient

Thanks, in part, to increased public awareness of the disease, there are an unprecedented number of clinical trials devoted to identifying effective treatment methods for osteoarthritis. That said, with hundreds of clinical trials taking place at any given time, finding the right one for you is often a challenge. Factors that determine whether a given trial is a “fit” include age, the stage of the disease, location, previous medication usage and more.

OsteoarthritisTrials.org gives you the ability to find clinical trials in your area that you may qualify for. You’ll be asked a handful of questions—which take about 30 seconds to answer—to determine your eligibility.

In the event that no applicable studies are found in your area, you’ll have the option to keep your contact information on file with OsteoarthritisTrials.org so that you can be contacted when one or more studies become available.
