Working With Us
Find out how you can begin collaborating with the OA-CTN. Use our network for a new clinical trial or to assist in clinical trial recruitment.
Clinical Trial Recruitment and Retention Awareness Services
The Arthritis Foundation works with clinical research partners to aid in awareness for recruitment and retention of patients in outstanding clinical trials. The AF requires partners to show a high level of patient safety and excellent scientific rigor. Meeting this criteria may come in the form of institutional review board (IRB) approvals, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) investigational new drug (IND) approvals, registration with ClinicalTrials.gov.
