Arthritis affects millions of people worldwide. The most common kind of arthritis — called osteoarthritis — happens when the cartilage that protects the ends of your bones wears down. This leads to symptoms like pain and stiffness. Osteoarthritis can affect any joint in your body, including knees and hips.
In the TANGO study, researchers are working to see if a new medication may help people with osteoarthritis in the future.
This study is testing an investigational medication called tanezumab to see if it may provide pain relief for people with osteoarthritis. "Investigational" is another way of saying that tanezumab has not been approved for use by the public. The study medication and all study procedures and clinic visits will be provided to you at no charge throughout your participation in the study.
You can withdraw from the study at any time. Please let the study site know if you are no longer interested in participating. They may request a final visit to review the current status of your health.
If you have any questions during your participation, please contact your study site. Their contact information is listed in the consent form you signed agreeing to participate in the study.
