There are three similar studies being conducted to evaluate the safety and effects of treatment with an investigational oral opioid pain medication compared to taking an approved opioid pain medicine.
- One of the studies includes a group taking capsules not having the opioid medication, however, this study allows your usual non-opioid pain medication to be taken throughout the study
- The other studies evaluate the safety and effects of treatment with the investigational oral opioid pain medication compared to taking an approved opioid pain medicine
We are seeking clinical research volunteers to join a study of an investigational pain medication for men or women between 18 and 80 years old who have osteoarthritis and are candidates for hip or knee joint surgery.
We are also seeking volunteers who are at least 18 years old with low back pain, hip or knee pain from Osteoarthritis to join a similar study of the same investigational pain medication.
These studies will last 4 weeks or 4 months or 13 months depending on your qualifications for participation and the particular study you are interested in.http://thepainstudy.com/index.html
