SL-1002 Injection Treatment for People with Knee Pain and Osteoarthritis (OA)

(IRB#: IRB_00154817)

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a disease that causes joint pain. This can occur in the knee. The Corticosteroid dexamethasone injection is used now to help people with OA knee pain. The human amniotic fluid epidural injection is a new way to treat this pain. Research is needed to learn the safety and effectiveness of the new injection and see which injection is better at improving symptoms. The information we learn will aid future patients.
