MIgraine Study

If you’re experiencing arthritis pain & want relief, you could help research. 

This study is examining the potential effect on reducing joint pain from osteoarthritis, specifically on the lower body joints of the hip or knee.

About the study you’ll take part in… pain relief.

The study will involve approximately 80 men & women who are experiencing osteoarthritis pain in the hip or knee. Each participant will take the Study Product (provided in capsules) for a 12-week period. 

Upon enrolment (your first visit to the clinic), you’ll have assessments including a blood test and questionnaires regarding pain and health. 

You will then be asked to rate your joint pain for 3 days/nights by completing a quick online form. 

Once we have information on your starting pain, you will be asked to take the Study Product for a period of 12-weeks. During this time, you will also be required to score your pain every 3-weeks (for 7 days).  

After 6 and 12-weeks of taking the Study Product, you will be required to attend the clinic again for a further blood test and questionnaires. 

The information we collect during the study will enable the investigators to assess the product’s effectiveness on how you felt before taking the Study Product, to how you felt after taking the product for 12-weeks. 

If you’re experiencing osteoarthritis pain in your hip or knee, aged over 45 and would like to help, we’d love to hear from you. Please register your interest by answering the questionnaire and completing the form on this page… we’ll then get in touch to screen you for suitability. 

About the product you’ll help test… a natural herb for joint pain.

Once enrolled in the study, you will be allocated to either the Ageratum supplement group or the placebo group. 

This study is examining Ageratum, specifically for reducing lower body joint pain caused by osteoarthritis in healthy adults. The product is taken daily in capsule form for 12-weeks.

As this study is placebo controlled, you may or may not be taking the active product.  50% of the study group will be taking a placebo (an inactive substance).
