Ankylosing Spondylitis Clinical Trials

We are currently seeking men and women between the ages of 18 to 45 for multiple ankylosing spondylitis studies. 

Typically found in males, ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects joints in the spine and the sacroiliac joint in the pelvis. Ankylosing spondylitis may even cause fusion of the spine. Known to be hereditary, the first symptoms begin with chronic back pain and proceed to inflammation of the eye, fatigue and nausea sometimes.  Although there is no cure for ankylosing spondylitis, physical therapy, exercise and medications can reduce the systems and pain.  The health professionals at Altoona Center for Clinical Research continue to offer cutting-edge treatment options.  If you or a family member has been diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis, the Altoona Center for Clinical Research is currently offering several  studies that may be helpful to controlling this disease.
