Researchers at NICM Health Research Institute are seeking participants to join a clinical trial investigating the effectiveness and safety of an herbal medicine for the management of osteoarthritis of the knee.

This 12 week study will examine if a herbal formulation consisting of Curcuma longa (turmeric), Zingiber officinale (ginger) and Boswellia serrata (Indian frankincense) can reduce knee pain due to osteoarthritis, improve functionality and physical movement, as well as overall wellbeing.

Recruitment is now underway for volunteers to participate in the study.

We are seeking participants that have:

  • Primary osteoarthritis in at least one knee
  • Mild to moderate knee pain
  • 40 to 75 years of age
  • Have a body mass index (BMI) 30 or less
