Field Safety and Efficacy of an Experimental Drug Compared to Placebo for the Treatment of Pain Associated with Osteoarthritis in Cats


There are no approved products for the treatment of pain associated with osteoarthritis (OA) in cats. The lack of approved products, together with the high prevalence of OA in cats means there is substantial need for available treatment of pain in cats.


To be eligible for this study, cats must meet several criteria:

  • Be > 12 months old and weigh > 2.0 kg
  • Evidence of radiographic OA (radiographs can be obtained at screening exam)
  • Cat is expected to have stable and predictable lifestyle for the duration of the study (3 months)
  • No recent changes in medications
  • Generally healthy or chronic conditions are stable
