Apply to Participate in UFAI's Bunion Clinical Trial

We are looking for patients with bunions for a research study named "Dystance" who meet these criteria*:

  


Bunion Clinical trial
  • 18 years of age or older
  • Have been diagnosed with bunion(s)
  • Have been treated for bunion(s), but have NOT had surgery
  • No allergies to cow's milk protein
  • No medical history of diabetes
  • *Other criteria will apply.

 

Study Overview:

 

If you are eligible and choose to participate in the Dystance study, you will have the opportunity to participate in two study periods: The Double-Blind Period and the Open-Label Period.


The Double-Blind Period will include a treatment day and at least a 12-week follow-up period. You will be randomly assigned (like the flip of a coin) to receive either one of 2 doses of study medication or placebo, which has no active ingredients. On treatment day, you will receive injections of study medication or placebo into the muscles of your foot with the bunion. If both feet have a bunion, you will receive study medication or placebo in the foot that is more severe during this period.


If you qualify for re-treatment, you will be treated during the Open-Label Period, which can last up to 24 weeks. All participants in this period may receive up to 2 injections of study medication with the active ingredient.

 

The study team will monitor your health and discuss assessments with you throughout the study.
