Local San Antonio Research Clinic Investigates New Osteoarthritis Treatments
Date:5/6/2013

(PRWEB) May 06, 2013

Diagnostics Research Group, an independent site for pharmaceutical and device research, is working with pharmaceutical companies to assess osteoarthritis (OA) medications currently not available to the public.

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and affects an estimated 27 million Americans. OA occurs when a joint’s cartilage breaks down. The absence of cartilage causes bones to rub against each other, which then can lead to stiffness, pain and loss of movement in the joint.

According to the Arthritis Foundation, “for every pound a person gains, they also add four pounds of pressure on their knees and six times the pressure on their hips.” A person’s age can have an effect on their joints, as well as an injury or overuse of the joint. Other risk factors can be muscle weakness or simply genetics.

Dr. Charles Andrews, Director of Clinical Research at Diagnostics Research Group notes that “with 70 million baby boomers in the U.S., there is a great need for innovative treatments of OA.”

Common symptoms include: joint soreness, stiffness, increasing pain throughout the day and the loss of coordination, posture and walking due to pain and stiffness. To diagnose OA, a doctor will check the individual’s medical history, and conduct a physical exam and order X-rays.

There are steps concerned persons can take to reduce their risk of developing OA, including exercise and weight control. Currently, there is no cure for OA and there are a few medications on the market used to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation.

In San Antonio, Texas Diagnostics Research Group is conducting a study to evaluate the effects of an OA medication not available to the public. If interested parties have been diagnosed with OA or think
