UFAI Now Enrolling Patients for a Unique Bunion Clinical Trial in Los Angeles

We’re seeking patients with bunions for a non-surgical research study.

Bunion Clinical Trial Enrolling Patients

You do not need to be a patient of UFAI to participate. There is no cost to participate in the study.

Persons who participate in this clinical trial will be helping evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a study medication compared with placebo (no active ingredients). The medicine is given by injection, in adults ages 18 years or older with hallux abducto valgus (HAV). Or, more commonly called, a bunion!

What’s learned from this study may assist those with bunions in the future.

Eligible participants will receive:

  • Potential access to a study medication at no charge
  • Opportunity to participate in the Open-Label Period where all participants will get the study drug
  • Study-related care and monitoring by our health care team
  • Education about their bunion condition
