Do you have Osteoarthritis?
We are looking for individuals who have knee pain due to Osteoarthritis to participate in a study investigating the benefits of krill oil supplementation on symptoms of Osteoarthritis of the knee.
There is no cure for OA; treatments are aimed at improving symptoms and primarily include painkillers (analgesics) and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Due to adverse effects associated with NSAIDs, a need exists for alternate therapies that safely and effectively reduce pain and inflammation and improve function in people with knee OA.
Krill oil, a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids and anti-oxidants, has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.
We are currently recruiting study participants who:
- Are 40 – 65 years of age.
- Have osteoarthritis in one or both knees.
- Are not currently taking fish/krill oil supplements.
Participants will need to attend five clinic visits over a 7 month period.
To see if you are eligible complete the questionnaire or call the Clinical Trials Centre on 07 5456 3797.
Full title: A Randomised, Double-blind, Placebo Controlled Study to Investigate the Efficacy on Pain Reduction and Safety of Swisse High Strength Deep Sea Krill Oil (Superba BOOST) in Adults with Mild to Moderate Osteoarthritis of the Knee.
