Promotion of pain relief in patients with osteoarthritis. [ Time Frame: 4 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Assessment of noninferiority clinical association Chondroitin + glucosamine in dosage forms and oral powder hard gelatin capsule, produced by Geolab Pharmaceutical Ltd., with the comparator drugs in the same dosage forms produced by the Laboratory Zodiac (Condroflex ®) through the promotion of pain relief in patients with osteoarthritis between grades 1 and 3, according to the classification of Kellgreen & Lawrence (1957), measured by visual analogue scale (VAS). There will be five visits: V0, V1, V2, V3 and V4.

Study With Chondroitin Sulfate and Glucosamine Sulfate (in Dosage Capsule and Sachet) in Treating Osteoarthritis
Randomized Evaluation Of Not Less Medical Association Chondroitin Sulfate Plus Glucosamine Sulfate (In Powder Dosage Forms And Oral Capsule), Manufactured By The Geolab Pharmaceutical Industry Ltd, Compared To The Drug Condroflex® (Powder And Oral Capsule), Manufactured In The Laboratory Zodiac, The Treatment Of Osteoarthritis.

The use of chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate has been recognized since the 70 decade in the treatment of osteoarthritis. Numerous clinical trials have demonstrated the therapeutic properties of this association in control of osteoarthritis, especially in reducing pain and improving movement. The combination of chondroitin sulfate with glucosamine sulfate offers a significantly higher tolerance than most drug treatments and, moreover, has long lasting effects even after stopping treatment.
