Research Study Summary

Changes in Biochemical Parameters After Viscosupplementaion of the Knee

Purpose

This study is being done to evaluate how Euflexxa works to decrease knee pain in osteoarthritis, a condition characterized by a worn down knee. Euflexxa is a Viscosupplementation agent; these agents are currently being used and have been used for the past few years in orthopedic surgery. Euflexxa helps restore the ability of synovial fluid (fluid in the knee) to cushion, lubricate, and protect the knee; this should decrease the pain associated with early osteoarthritis and may prevent the need for more invasive interventions such as knee replacement.
