Osteoarthritis Of The Knee
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis. Some people call it degenerative joint disease or “wear and tear” arthritis. It occurs most frequently in the hands, hips, and knees. With OA, the cartilage within a joint begins to break down and the underlying bone begins to change. These changes usually develop slowly and get worse over time. OA can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling. In some cases it also causes reduced function and disability; some people are no longer able to do daily tasks or work.
The sponsor is developing a patch for local administration for the treatment of knee pain due to OA. The purpose of the research is to find out the effect and safety of the study drug on pain among subjects with osteoarthritis of the knee as well as to evaluate the effect on physical activity and stiffness among subjects with osteoarthritis of the knee.
