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

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, 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.

A novel comprehensive approach through which the joint and its surrounding structures are treated as an integrated system may offer a clinically superior treatment to hip osteoarthritis (OA) compared to only an intra-articular (IA) infiltration. The efficacy of autologous leukocyte-poor platelet-rich plasma (LP-PRP) for the treatment of OA is a growing area of regenerative orthopedic research. The purpose of this study is to determine if a LP-PRP treatment to both the IA space and EA supporting capsular ligament and tendon structures provides a significant clinical benefit when compared to an IA treatment alone. In this clinical study of 84 patients, both study arms receive effective treatments that are supported by sound medical evidence, making this an ethically strong model to address our hypothesis. This is a multi-site, randomized, comparative study of LP-PRP treatment into the IA space versus the IA space and EA hip structures. This study is sponsored by Regenerative Orthopedics and Sports Medicine (ROSM) and EmCyte Corporation. Patients who meet the study criteria with at least mild pain as indicated by >25/100 on a 100mm visual analogue scale (VAS) (Sanchez et al. 2011), or <80/100 on HOOS JR with radiographic evidence of Kellgren-Lawrence grades 1-3 hip OA will be invited to participate in this study. The preparation of PRP is a simple tissue fractionation using centrifugation with EmCyte PurePRP Supraphysiologic SP kit [EmCyte Corp. Fort Myers FL]. Platelet quantification analysis is performed using the Horiba ABX Micros ES 60 [Plymouth Medical]. Primary outcome measures are indicated by overall hip pain severity by HOOS JR and VAS patient reported outcome measures.
Active Comparator: Intra-articular LP-PRP Injection
A single injection of leukocyte poor platelet rich plasma (LP-PRP) will be administered to the intra-articular space under ultrasound guidance at the treatment visit.
Experimental: Intra- and extra- articular LP-PRP Injection
A single injection of LP-PRP will be administered to the intra- articular space and the extra- articular structures under ultrasound guidance at the first visit.
Biological: - Leukocyte-poor platelet rich plasma
Platelet rich plasma was prepared using PurePRP Supra Physiologic Protocol A preparation [EmCyte Corp. Fort Myers FL].
