Can a Steroid Prevent OA?
The Arthritis Foundation funds a study that aims to slow or stop osteoarthritis.
“Arthroscopic meniscectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures in the world. In knee osteoarthritis, meniscus plays a key role and should be studied in clinical trials,” says Jason Kim, PhD, the Vice President of Osteoarthritis Research Programs at the Arthritis Foundation.
The Arthritis Foundation has invested over $2.2M into the ongoing CoMeT Study — one of the first projects of the Osteoarthritis Clinical Trial Network (OA-CTN) and an inspiration for the larger PIKASO Project. CoMeT is a predecessor of the PIKASO Project and established many of the ideas, concepts and techniques to be used in upcoming clinical trials supported by the Arthritis Foundation.
“Our activity in clinical trials is a keystone to achieving the Arthritis Foundation's goals and overall mission to serve patients,” says Maria Vassileva, PhD, the Senior Vice President of Science Strategy at the Arthritis Foundation.
