Clinical Trials for People with Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis
For those who suffer from any of the many forms of arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, the painful, debilitating nature of the condition can be a lot to manage. Depending on the severity of the condition, even the most routine day-to-day activities, from tying shoelaces to getting out of a chair, can be compromised.
Treatment for arthritis currently centers on pain management and inflammation control, as there is no cure for the condition. Medication for inflammation and arthritis pain relief and can help limit discomfort in the short term, while other medications may be used to help slow the disease’s progression.
Arthritis Treatment Developments
Research and clinical trials on arthritis are often broken down by the types of arthritis, as not all variations present with the same symptoms or react to the same treatments. Across all types of arthritis, studies are ongoing to develop more effective treatments and to gain a greater understanding of the impacts of the condition.
Though many clinical trials focus on developing new arthritis medications, others focus on alternative treatment options; for example, trials on the effects of supplements such as glucosamine, or physical activities like tai chi and yoga as both a preventative measure and for pain control. Still other studies focus on the effects of living with arthritis and the coping strategies of patients, to help develop better treatment strategies for all sufferers.
