Participate in CREATE-1 CRPS Study

Researchers at the University of Washington are currently enrolling participants for the CREATE-1 Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Study. CREATE-1 is a phase 3 clinical trial of an oral bisphosphonate (AXS-02) that may help improve CRPS symptoms. Eligible participants will receive the investigational medication (oral bisphosphonate) or placebo once weekly for 6 weeks.

If you choose to join the study, you will receive all study-related care at no cost, and your CRPS condition and overall health will be closely monitored by a CRPS specialist and study staff.
