Research Project: Evaluating the effectiveness of Tregocel®, a natural herbal formulation for relieving mild osteoarthritis (OA) symptoms

What is this research about?

This study is an assessment of the overall performance of participants with symptomatic mild knee OA taking Tregocel® as a dietary supplement in addition to standard of care treatment.

Tregocel® is a combination of herbs (curcumin as Meriva®, frankincense, devil’s claw, celery and ginger) which as a dietary supplement may help maintain proper performance of joints. Although some studies have reported beneficial effects of individual components, there have been no clinical assessments of supplementation with Tregocel® as a finished product. This study will involve collection of data on Tregocel® supplementation in participants with symptomatic mild knee OA who are already receiving standard pharmacological treatment.

This study is registered with the U.S National Library of Medicine and recruitment of participants is occurring in local hospitals in Poland.
