The purpose of this study is to assess the impact of a whole food plant-based diet on blood sugar control in diabetic patients versus a control group on the American Diabetics Association diet before having a total hip, knee, or shoulder replacement surgery.
Open for enrollment
The purpose of this study is to find out whether knee joint fluid (synovial fluid) contains substances which may interfere with laboratory tests not normally done on synovial fluid.
During the early phases (phases 1 and 2), researchers assess safety, side effects, optimal dosages and risks/benefits. In the later phase (phase 3), researchers study whether the treatment works better than the current standard therapy. They also compare the safety of the new treatment with that of current treatments. Phase 3 trials include large numbers of people to make sure that the result is valid. There are also less common very early (phase 0) and later (phase 4) phases. Phase 0 trials are small trials that help researchers decide if a new agent should be tested in a phase 1 trial. Phase 4 trials look at long-term safety and effectiveness, after a new treatment has been approved and is on the market.
