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.
