Although the condition is commonly thought to be a problem for older people, osteoarthritis actually affects people of all ages and can be brought on by injuries to your joints. By participating in clinical trials, you are helping researchers around the world improve what we know about osteoarthritis and how to treat it.
How Do I Qualify for an OA Clinical Trial in DeLand?
Qualification for a clinical study can depend on a few factors. For each individual OA study we conduct, there is a unique set of qualification criteria.

Here are some general qualification criteria to keep in mind:
- You’ll need to have a clinically confirmed diagnosis of osteoarthritis in order to qualify for one of our clinical trials.
- A history of substance or alcohol abuse within the last 5 years can make you ineligible to participate.
- Volunteers who don’t have health insurance can still qualify to participate for one of our osteoarthritis clinical trials.

Signs and Symptoms of Osteoarthritis
The most common symptom associated with osteoarthritis is pain and aching in the joints. Osteoarthritis joint pain is exacerbated under stress or through movement, but relieved when immobile. However, the joints can become stiff after an extended period of rest. Patients with osteoarthritis can experience joint tenderness, bone spurs, inflammation, and morning stiffness.
The joints that are most commonly affected by osteoarthritis are:
- Lower back
The signs and symptoms of OA to look out for include:
- Joint pain
- Reduced range of motion in the joint
- Tenderness in or around the joint
- Stiffness (especially after waking up or in the morning)
- Development of bone spurs
- A grating sensation when you move the joint
