We’re getting under the skin of Osteoarthritis

Am I eligible for studies?

To enable us to assess your suitability for upcoming clinical trials please answer the following questions:


I have osteoarthritis or persistent pain in the hip or knee


Is osteoarthritis causing you to take pain medication at least 2 days a week?



The pain from osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip or knee can be difficult to manage. People with this condition feel the pain differently, describing it for example as a dull persistent ache or sharp stabbing pains on movement, or both. Others describe it as a burning sensation, or a feeling of bone rubbing against bone. Nearly ¾ of people with osteoarthritis report constant pain and  people retire early, give up work or reduce the hours they work because of this condition*.

If you live with OA of the hip or knee, you will know the limitations this can have on your day to day activities, making you slow down and become more dependent on others.

If this is you, we invite you to find out more about clinical trials into these conditions.

Together for the future of health.
