Chronic Lower Back Pain with Osteoarthritis Study


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. In order to participate in the study, patients must meet the following criteria:

  • Age ≥ 18 years
  • CLBP of ≥ 3 months
  • Willing to discontinue all pain medications for CLBP, except rescue medication and the investigational medication
  • Diagnosis of OA in 1 hip or knee

Patients seeking to participate in the trial will be excluded if they meet any of the following criteria:

  • Body mass index of > 39 kg/m2

Qualified participants will receive all study medication and study-related care from a dedicated team of medical staff at no cost. Health insurance is not required to participate. Compensation for time and travel is available.
