Research Study Summary

Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid Arthritis - Volunteers with Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid Arthritis are needed for a research study


This study is for patients with a type of arthritis-called osteoarthritis (OA) or rheumatoid arthritis (RA) whose doctor believes will benefit from daily treatment with anti-inflammatory medicines, called NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) used to control arthritis pain. The study involves three different study drugs that are FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved to treat arthritis pain. The testing of one drug compared with the other two drugs is considered investigational.

The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of long-term use (greater than 12 months) of one drug compared to the other two drugs on cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel), gastrointestinal (stomach) and renal (kidney) health. The ability of each drug to control arthritis pain effectively will also be evaluated. Eligible patients will receive study medication, study-related medical care and testing at no charge and may also be compensated for their travel expenses and time.

To be eligible for the study patients must:

  • Be male or female 18 years of age or older
  • Have a diagnosis of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis for at least 6 months
  • Be determined by their doctor to have cardiovascular disease or risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease
