Chronic lower back pain (CLBP) is defined as pain that persists for 12 weeks (almost 3 months) or longer. About 80% of adults experience low back pain at some point in their lifetimes. Both men and women are equally affected by CLBP, which can range in intensity from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp sensation that leaves the person incapacitated. This pain can begin abruptly as a result of an accident, by lifting something heavy, or it can develop over time from normal age-related changes in the spine.
Albuquerque Clinical Trials is conducting a research study to evaluate an investigational medication in the treatment of chronic lower back pain with osteoarthritis.
