Results from a clinical trial by San Diego based Imagenetix, Inc. www.imagenetix.net (Symbol: IAGX) suggest that its product Celadrin™, a natural-based nutritional supplement comprised of a combination of cetylated fatty acids, promotes optimal joint health.* Data from the clinical trial is published in the August, 2002 issue of the Journal of Rheumatology.
In a double-blind, multi-center, placebo-controlled clinical trial of Celadrin™, researchers examined the impact of a 68-day oral administration of Celadrin™ on 64 participants who were experiencing joint and mobility challenges. The placebo group and the Celadrin™ group were evaluated at baseline, at 30 days, and at 68 days. Among other measurements, evaluations included physician assessment, knee range of motion, and the Lequesne algofunctional index.
Results after 68 days indicated that participants treated with Celadrin™ exhibited healthy joint mobility, flexibility and function* compared to those given the placebo. Participants responses to the Lequesne index indicated a statistically significant (p<0.001) shift towards functional improvement for the Celadrin™ group after 68 days compared to the participants given the placebo.
Data from the study indicated that Celadrin™ not only promoted joint flexibility, but significantly improved the reported ability of participants to walk long distances. Moreover, participants in the study exhibited no side effects.
"The scientific findings are very significant," said Imagenetix Director of Research and Development, Robert Hesslink, Jr., Sc.D. "We are very pleased that the Journal of Rheumatology published the findings enabling the data to be viewed by top medical and scientific professionals throughout the world."
"Our goal is to make this exceptional product, Celadrin™, available to all the millions of people who can benefit from it," said Bill Spencer, President of Imagenetix. "Celadrin™ is unique. It does not contain Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM, or SAMe. Additionally, unlike many competitive products, with over 90,000,000 Celadrin™ pills distributed to date, we have no evidence of reported side effects. Safe and effective products, available at a reasonable cost and backed up by solid scientific research continue to be a consumer priority. Celadrin™ satisfies all of those criteria."
Celadrin™ is a safe and effective, natural nutritional supplement developed by Imagenetix. It is a natural-based supplement comprised of a blend of cetylated fatty acids, intended to support healthy joint function and mobility*.
The current scientific research reported in the Journal of Rheumatology adds to Celadrin’s™ scientific success in supporting optimal joint health, including both function and mobility.*
Celadrin™ cream, a topical rub, is currently being subjected to a clinical trial. Celadrin™ cream with menthol is currently being marketed as an OTC pain relieving product.
