Imagenetix announced the publication of its clinical study in The Journal of Rheumatology
San Diego, CA - April 1st, 2004 - Imagenetix, Inc. (OTC/BB: IAGX) -- A new study conducted by the University of Connecticut found Imagenetix's topical cream, Celadrin®, may significantly benefit those suffering from arthritis. The results of this clinical study were published today in The Journal of Rheumatology, a publication that provides an international forum for rheumatological topics in published format.
In the study, all of the patients who applied Celadrin® (a complex of cetylated fatty acids) as opposed to the placebo cream, demonstrated significant improvement in all five physical function measurements. Patients were assessed for physical function, pain levels, range of motion, postural sway, timed up and go from a chair, timed stair climbing and medial step-down. For every measure, the difference between the Celadrin® cream group and placebo cream group was significant, including reduction in pain and stiffness, improvement in supine range of motion of the osteoarthritic knee, less postural sway and reductions in time in both the up and go and the stair climbing tests.
According to William Kraemer, Ph.D., from the University of Connecticut, "The scientific findings were quite impressive and are very encouraging. Osteoarthritis is a complex condition which is typically treated using nonsteroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs. These findings show that a topical cream, can be a very effective and viable alternative. It is exceptionally impressive that 100% of the patients using Celadrin® topical cream reported significant benefit when compared to the placebo group, with no reported side effects."
"The benefits shown in this unique and landmark research continue to scientifically validate the strong efficacy profile of Celadrin® topical cream", said Robert Hesslink, Jr., Sc.D., Imagenetix Director of Research and co-author of the study. "The findings demonstrate that persons who suffer with arthritis, and who live with tremendous mobility restrictions and pain can benefit from Celadrin® topical cream.
Celadrin® is a novel compound developed through a proprietary process. Celadrin® is an all-natural ingredient which has been clinically shown to provide joint health, flexibility and improved quality of life on a cumulative basis with no reported side effects.
