Trial Specifics:

This trial is designed to evaluate the tolerability, safety and effectiveness of a novel pain management therapy in dogs with osteoarthritis.  The drug is administered as one-time intra-articular injections in 1 or 2 joints. The injection will be administered under sedation or general anesthesia. There is no placebo in this trial.  An estimated 15 client-owned dogs with osteoarthritis will be enrolled.  Owners will be required to complete pain assessment surveys, track their dog’s activity through the use of an activity monitor worn on the dog’s collar, and record short at-home videos assessing the dog’s gait. The trial site will train the owners on all of these assessments. Trial visits include the dog’s initial consultation, treatment day (Day 0), and then recheck visits on Days 14, 28, 56, and 84.  Medications targeted at the treatment of osteoarthritis associated pain are acceptable provided they have been administered for at least 2 weeks prior to enrolling in the study. 

Trial Funding:

The trial is fully funded for the full trial duration (84 days).  Funding includes the initial consultation, the study treatment and administration, radiographs prior to treatment (if not performed within 4 months of enrollment), recheck visits, required bloodwork, and management of side effects that are thought to be directly related to the trial.

  • Dog’s body weight 10-50 kg
