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.
|Eligible Ages||N/A and Over|
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.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
The research will be conducted at the following location(s): Baylor College of Medicine, Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center (BSLMC), and Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Participants of this study are consented for the study, randomized into one of two treatment groups for hand osteoarthritis, both expected to improve hand symptoms. At the beginning of the study, many questionnaires, a physical exam, photographs of the hands, some x-rays, on a limited few people, and MRI will be obtained. Then the participants will be provided treatments for hand osteoarthritis based on the group wo which they were randomly assigned. One aspect of one of the treatments is viewed as experimental but the risks related to the treatment are considered to be low, so the risk-benefit ratio for participation in this study are good. We see patients in follow up more frequently during the first month, and then at 3 months and then 6 months of follow up. At the final visit, we will repeat the xrays and the MRIs.
Active Comparator: Treatment arm with control orthosis
Experimental: Treatment arm with experimental orthosis
Device: - Hand orthosis
An orthosis applied to a hand affected by osteoarthritis with the expectation that it will improve symptoms and possibly structural progression.
