ABOUT THE STUDY: Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve – the longest nerve in the entire body. The sciatic nerve begins in the lower back, and branches through the hips and buttocks and down each leg.
Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve gets pinched, usually by a herniated disc in the spine. This pressure on the nerve causes it to become inflamed and irritated - resulting in pain, tingling, or numbness that starts in the lower back and travels down the leg.
If you struggle with sciatica pain, you may qualify for the CLEAR Clinical Study. The study is evaluating SP-102, an investigational, non-opioid injection designed to relieve sciatica-related back and leg pain. SP-102 is injected into the lower back while at the doctor’s office.
The CLEAR Study is currently being conducted at select locations throughout the U.S. If you qualify and choose to participate, you will receive all study-related care at no cost. This includes the SP-102 injection as well as any examinations or visits required for the study.
You must be 18 years of age or older to participate in a clinical trial study. Eligible participants will receive study-related medication and health assessments. Additionally, eligible participants will be compensated for transportation and parking costs.
Your decision to participate in a clinical research study is an important commitment. You are contributing to medical research that might help others like you in the future. Clinical trials are the fastest and safest way to find out if a particular drug works. The goal is to gather the best-quality information about the drug being tested. Clinical trials try to find out if there is a true difference between the investigational medication and a placebo. Important medical decisions will be made based on this study, whatever the outcome is.
