Would you like to participate in an investigational study for patients who suffer from  Ankylosing Spondylitis or Axial Spondyloarthritis?

We're inviting you to take part in a study for patients who suffer from Ankylosing Spondylitis or Axial Spondyloarthritis to evaluate the effect of the investigational drug on treating the symptoms associated with the condition. All study-related visits, tests, care, and study drug will be provided at no cost. In addition, compensation for study-related travel may be provided. Health insurance is not required to participate.

The study will be evaluating the efficacy of an investigational study drug for Ankylosing Spondylitis or Axial Spondyloarthritis. 

Participants may be eligible to take part in the Ankylosing Spondylitis Studies if you: 

  • Have a diagnosis of Ankylosing Spondylitis or Axial Spondyloarthritis
  • Are at least 18 years of age
  • Have not responded sufficiently to at least 2 NSAIDs, Aspirin, or Naproxen OR cannot take NSAIDs due to side effects or other safety reasons

All study-related care will be provided by a team of medical professionals.

About Ankylosing Spondylitis and Axial Spondyloarthritis

Ankylosing Spondylitis and Axial Spondyloarthritis (axial SpA) is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the spine, causing severe pain, stiffness and fatigue; varying from day-to-day. Typically, the symptoms of Ankylosing Spondylitis and Axial Spondyloarthritis begin during early adulthood, but may start at any age.

Ankylosing Spondylitis and Axial Spondyloarthritis often starts at the bottom of the spine, where the ligaments or tendons attach to the bone. Repeated inflammation can lead to further bone formation, and the vertebrae may begin to fuse together.1

Besides back pain alone, there are several other symptoms that are associated with Ankylosing Spondylitis and Axial Spondyloarthritis such as:

  • Gradual onset of back stiffness and pain over weeks or months
  • Feeling better after workouts and exercise
  • Fatigue and tiredness
  • Night sweats
  • Weightloss in the early stages

Regular exercise, stretching and NSAIDs, (such as diclofenac, ibuprofen, naproxen, celecoxib and etoricoxib) help many people relieve their symptoms. However, there are an outstanding number of Ankylosing Spondylitis and Axial Spondyloarthritis patients who have not seen improvement with or are unable to take NSAIDs due to safety or side effect reasons.

The Ankylosing Spondylitis Studies are evaluating an investigational drug for adults with Ankylosing Spondylitis or Axial Spondyloarthritis.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Clinical Research Study? 

A Clinical Research Study (also called a clinical trial) is a medical study that helps to answer important questions about an investigational drug – these may include how well an investigational study drug works for a certain condition. All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved and prescribed to patients. 

Participation in the  Ankylosing Spondylitis Studies will involve visits to a study clinic near your home. 

Those who qualify will receive either the investigational drug or a placebo, as well as all call and study-related medical exams and laboratory tests, all at no cost. Compensation for travel may also be available.

In the Ankylosing Spondylitis Studies, participants will be randomly assigned to a study group. You will receive either the investigational drug or a placebo,  Ankylosing Spondylitis on the assigned study group. Neither you nor the study team will know which study group you are in, but in the case of an emergency, the study doctor can quickly find out.

Volunteers who qualify to take part in the study may receive compensation for study-related travel. Please discuss this with the study team when they contact you.  

There is no cost to participate in the Ankylosing Spondylitis Studies. If you qualify, all study-related visits, tests, care, and study drug will be provided at no cost. 

If you decide to take part, you will receive study-related care throughout the study from a team of experienced doctors and nurses.

The research team will be able to explain more about what the Ankylosing Spondylitis Studies will involve, and it is up to you to decide if you want to take part. Participation in this study is voluntary. Whether or not you decide to participate in this study will not affect your current or future relationships with your doctors. If you decide to participate, you are free to withdraw at any time without affecting those relationships or the care you receive.  

We match you to a study clinic within a close travel distance from your home. If we are not running the study in your area currently, with your permission, we will keep you in our database and reach out once a study clinic in your area becomes available. If at any time, you decide you no longer want to participate in the study, you can opt-out and we will delete your information.
