London, United Kingdom, August 12, 2014.
Clinical Accelerator, a full-service clinical contract research organization, is happy to announce the launch of a new clinical study in patients with active ostheoarthritis in collaboration with EuroPharma. The randomized placebo-controlled study will explore the efficacy and safety of EuroPharma’s Curamin® product in patients with hip and knee ostheoarthritis . Curamin® has shown considerable promise in the treatment of osteoarthritis and the study will address the significant current research interest related to establishing the role of the curcumin-based product in the treatment of ostheoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis, a degenerative age-related disease that affects the joints, is the most common human musculoskeletal disorder, and a leading cause of disability in elderly populations worldwide. Osteoarthritis treatments presently mainly rely on analgesics, which manage pain, but fail to restore imbalances between catabolic and anabolic processes that underlie the pathogenesis of the condition.
EuroPharma is a one of the leading companies worldwide providing clinically-studied curcumin formulations to address occasional pain and inflammation†, cognitive health, cellular stability, and oxidative damage.* Using highly researched ingredients backed by science, EuroPharma, headquarted in Green Bay, Wisconsin, brings custom, proprietary natural formulas – many well-known in Europe – to the United States and beyond.
