Wellbeing Digital Sciences (NEO:MEDI.AQN, OTCQB:KONEF) Inc announced that a clinical study conducted by its wholly-owned subsidiary, KGK Science Inc, has shown positive results of its GJ 191 supplementation (JointAlive) in treating osteoarthritis.
The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled intervention demonstrated that supplementation with GJ 191 provided reductions in current knee pain at six and 12 weeks. Additionally, after 12 weeks, 53% of participants reported a clinically important improvement in knee symptoms. Seventy-two males and females between 40-73 years were enrolled in the study and participants consumed either GJ 191 or a placebo daily for 12 weeks.
“This clinically meaningful change has impact on this population of patients with self-reported knee pain,” Dr Mal Evans, chief scientific officer at KGK Science said in a statement.
