The state of Illinois currently has 51 active clinical trials seeking participants for Arthritis research studies. These trials are conducted in various cities, including Chicago, Peoria, Springfield and Urbana.
Dronabinol After Arthroscopic Surgery
Recruiting
The purpose of the proposed study is to evaluate the efficacy of dronabinol for postoperative pain after arthroscopic surgery of the knee. The investigators hypothesize that dronabinol will relieve pain, reduce opioid consumption and will result in few negative side effects. If this pilot study shows promising results the investigators will expand the trial to include additional arthroscopic surgeries (hip, shoulder) and other types of orthopaedic surgery.

Chronic Pain in Rheumatoid Arthritis
Recruiting
The objective is to identify modifiable clinical factors and neurobiological pathways that lead to the development of chronic pain in patients with early rheumatoid arthritis. Participants will undergo quantitative sensory testing, a type of testing that involves assessing response to well-defined, quantifiable painful stimuli, at 0, 3, and 12 months. A subset of participants will also undergo magnetic resonance imaging at 0 and 12 months to assess neuroimaging markers that have previously been... Read More

Intra-articular Platelet-Rich Plasma Compared With Viscosupplementation in the Treatment of Knee Osteoarthritis
Recruiting
This is a single-center, prospective, randomized, single-blind, comparator therapy, parallel group study for symptomatic patients diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis. The aim is to demonstrate superior efficacy of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) as compared to hyaluronic acid (HA) in treating knee osteoarthritis. This aim will be objectively measured by endpoint consisting of changes in cartilage thickness from baseline in the MRI. The Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) Questionnaire...

Brain-Based and Clinical Phenotyping of Pain Pharmacotherapy in Knee Osteoarthritis
Recruiting
This is a clinical trial of people who have pain due to knee osteoarthritis at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. The study will last for about 20 weeks. 180 qualified participants will be randomly assigned in a 1:1:1 ratio (60 participants per group) to one of three treatment groups: duloxetine, celecoxib, or placebo. Participants will have an Xray, knee MRI, brain MRI, blood draws, pain sensitivity testing, and asked to fill out questionnaires. The purpose of this study is to... Read More

Positioning for Hip Arthroscopic Surgery to Reduce Postoperative Numbness
Recruiting
Compared to the knee and shoulder, the hip joint leaves relatively little space to maneuver arthroscopic instruments and camera. To expand the potential space in the hip joint, traction is commonly applied to the operative leg through a perineal post. This is an effective technique to improve the working space for arthroscopy, however it has been associated with complications, including perineal numbness. Traction pads, used alone or with a perineal post, can reduce pressure on the perineal area... Read More

Postoperative Hip Precautions After Total Hip Arthroplasty Via the Posterior Approach: A Prospective Randomized Trial
Recruiting
The purpose of this study is to determine if hip precautions, which are instructions that limit functional use of a hip replacement after surgery, affect the rate of dislocation in the first six weeks after primary total hip replacement surgery. The impact of hip precautions on a patient's return to activities of daily living and overall patient satisfaction will also be investigated. The overall cost effectiveness of hip precautions will be determined.
