Clinical trials are research studies that test how well new medical approaches and treatments work in patients. It’s a critical step in translating research into new medicines that can provide better outcomes for patients. The performance of clinical trials is a vital component of U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s drug approval process.
Finding a Trial
Often one of the most challenging aspects of the drug approval process is finding people to participate in trials. Our Arthritis Trial Finder is intended to help raise awareness and increase participation in arthritis related clinical trials to accelerate the development of new drugs and treatments for patients.
Use the filters below to narrow down your search results. If you are interested in learning more about a trial that came up in your search, contact the site coordinator via email or phone. We also strongly recommend that you consult with your healthcare provider about the trials that may interest you.

14022 ATTUNE Cementless RP Clinical Performance Evaluation
The primary objective of this study is to examine the change from pre-operative baseline to two year postoperative functional performance improvement for the ATTUNE primary, cementless TKA RP system as measured with the KOOS questionnaire (KOOS-ADL sub-score). This will be carried out for two configurations: cruciate retaining rotating platform (ATTUNE Cementless CR RP) and posterior stabilized rotating platform (ATTUNE Cementless PS RP).22 Years - 80 Years
28mm Ceramic-on-Ceramic Total Hip Replacement Study
This study is intended to gather medium (0-5 years) and long-term (6-10 years) information regarding the performance and safety of the commercially available Ceramax™ Ceramic on Ceramic Total Hip System. This is a two-phased study consisting of a clinical follow-up phase and a clinical outcomes phase. In Phase One (0-5 years), diagnostic, demographic and operative information will be gathered for each subject enrolled in this study. In addition, Harris Hip Evaluations, subjective evaluations and radiographs will be completed annually. In Phase Two (6 - 10 years), a subjective outcomes questionnaire and a SF-12 Health Survey will be...N/A and Over
2 Weekly Intra-articular Hyaluronan Knee Injections, Given 1 wk. Apart, of HYMOVIS Combined With Physical Exercise Program (PEP) Compared to PEP Alone, in Relatively Young, Active Population of Subjects With Patellofemoral Osteoarthritis (PFOA) and/or Tibiofemoral Osteoarthritis (TFOA)
Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is among the most common causes of musculoskeletal pain and disability. At present, there is no cure for OA. Therefore, the primary aims of therapy are to reduce pain, maintain or improve function and mobility, and prevent or slow the progression of adverse changes to the joint tissues, while keeping potential therapeutic toxicities to a minimum. Current treatment guidelines begin with non-pharmacologic modalities, such as patient education, weight loss, and physical therapy. Several exercise-based therapeutic approaches, such as aerobic exercise programs, range-of-motion exercises, and muscle-strengthening...21 Years - 60 Years
3D MR Versus 3D CT for Glenohumeral Arthritis
This study aims to assess the efficacy of three-dimensional magnetic resonance (MR) compared to three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) imaging. This proposed study is a prospective, unrandomized, single-blinded, self-controlled, and single-armed diagnostic radiological evaluation study.18 Years and Over
3 Local Anesthetics for Spinal Anesthesia in Primary Total Hip Arthroplasty
Spinal anesthesia is commonly utilized for hip replacement surgery. Different medications used for spinal anesthesia work for different lengths of time. This study will compare three different spinal anesthesia medications in patients having hip replacement surgery to see if patients are able to get out of bed and walk earlier after surgery with one medication versus the others.18 Years - 84 Years
A 4-week Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of HP-5000 in Subjects With Knee Osteoarthritis

Abatacept for SLE Arthritis (IM101-330)
This research trial is for patients who have been diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with swollen, tender joints (which is called inflammatory polyarthritis) because of the SLE. The purpose of this clinical research study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of treatment with abatacept (Abatacept) 125mg injected subcutaneously (under the skin) weekly for 16 weeks versus placebo injections(a substance with no active ingredients and therefore may have no treatment benefit) in subjects with SLE and inflammatory polyarthritis. The effectiveness will be assessed primarily by the number of swollen, tender joints (called a ...18 Years and Over
Abatacept for the Treatment of Myositis-associated Interstitial Lung Disease
A randomized, controlled pilot trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of subcutaneous Abatacept in treating interstitial lung disease associated with the anti-synthetase syndrome.18 Years and Over
Abatacept for the Treatment of Relapsing, Non-Severe, Granulomatosis With Polyangiitis (Wegener's)
Multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of abatacept to achieve sustained glucocorticoid-free remission in patients with relapsing non-severe granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's) (GPA) . Participants will be randomized 1:1 to receive either abatacept 125 mg or placebo administered by subcutaneous injection once a week. Participants will continue on study treatment for a minimum of 12 months unless they experience a disease relapse or disease flare. Participants who experience a non-severe disease relapse, non-severe disease worsening, or who have not achieved remission by month 6...15 Years and Over
