SERENITY CM Clinical Study

Is sciatica leg pain affecting your life?

If you have moderate to severe pain that radiates from your lower back and buttock down into the back of your leg, you may have sciatica (also called lumbar radiculopathy) – a painful condition that affects millions of Americans.
Sciatica is often caused by a bulging disc in the lower back pressing against the sciatic nerve – a nerve that begins in the lower back and extends down the back of each leg. This is why sciatica pain often feels like it “travels” down the back of one leg. Sciatica pain varies from person to person. Sometimes it is a sharp or shooting pain, while for others it can feel like tingling, numbness or weakness. Although sciatica pain often resolves after a few days, for some the pain lasts for weeks or even months, or keeps coming back.

You may be interested in the SERENITY CM Clinical Study.

The SERENITY CM Study is evaluating an investigational treatment for sciatica leg pain. It involves a single injection that does not contain steroids or opioids, but rather uses clonidine, a pain reliever and anti-inflammatory medication. In addition, the investigational treatment is an extended-release formulation, designed to provide long-term pain relief.

If you qualify and choose to join the study, you will be seen by a local physician and will receive all study-related care at no cost. As part of the study, participants will be randomly assigned (like flipping a coin) to either receive a single injection of clonidine (50% chance) or a placebo (50% chance) in which no active medication is delivered. Neither you nor your doctor will know which treatment you receive, the actual treatment or the placebo. This is a common technique in clinical studies, as it helps doctors and researchers understand the effects of the investigational medication without bias.

As part of the study you will meet with your study doctor and team regularly over a 12-month period to evaluate your progress (7 follow-up visits after your treatment). You will also receive a modest payment for each visit you complete.

Doctors at select centers in the US are conducting the SERENITY CM Clinical Study – a new research study for people who struggle with sciatica.
