Amniotic Umbilical Cord Particulate During Total Knee Arthroplasty

Study Purpose

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is the most common joint replacement surgery and its incidence is expected to increase 673% to 3.48 million procedures annually by 2030. After more than 20 years of follow-up data, TKA is confirmed to be an effective treatment for knee osteoarthritis, however, postoperative pain management continues to be a challenge despite advances in surgical techniques and anesthetic practice to minimize discomfort and enhance recovery. This acute post-surgical pain caused by extensive tissue damage and inflammation in TKA leads to restricted post-operative knee range of motion (ROM) and ability to mobilize.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Planned use of intra-articular steroid injections during the study. 12. Received any local anesthetic within 7 days of the planned TKA procedure aside from those part of the protocol 13. Planned use of potent inhalational agents or peripheral nerve block (e.g., femoral nerve block) 14. Current or planned use of neuraxial (epidural or intrathecal) opioids 15. Received administration of an investigational drug within 30 days prior to study, and/or has planned administration of another investigational product or procedure during participation in this study 16.

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.


Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
