COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted/resubmitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Summary
Brief summary
This is a Phase 1b, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and preliminary efficacy of multiple SC doses of OLP-1002 in patients who have pain due to moderate to severe osteoarthritis (OA) in a hip and/or knee joint. The study consists of:
• Screening period: up to 14 days (defined as Day -23 to -9)
• Washout period: 5 days (± 1 day) (defined as Day -8 to -4)
• Baseline period: 3 days (± 1 day) (defined as Day -3 to -1, where Day -1 is the day before dosing)
• Treatment period: 15 days (± 1 day) (defined as Day 1 to 15, where Day 1 is the day of first dosing)
• Follow-up period: 30 days (± 5 days) (defined as Day 16 to 45, assuming Day 15 is the day of the last dose)
Up to 30 patients will be enrolled in the study and will be randomised in the ratio 1:1:1 to the following arms:
• Arm A: 10 patients will receive 5 µg twice-weekly (BIW) OLP-1002
• Arm B: 10 patients will receive 10 µg BIW OLP-1002
• Arm C: 10 patients will receive Placebo BIW
