What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

Abstract Purpose: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of intra-articular mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) injections for knee osteoarthritis (OA) treatment. Methods: We performed a systematic literature search in PubMed, Embase, Scopus, and the Cochrane Library through April 2020 to identify level I randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that evaluated the clinical efficacy of MSCs versus control treatments for knee OA. Outcomes were analyzed on an intention-to-treat basis with random-effects models (...)

3. Safety of Low-Dose Tanezumab in the Treatment of Hip or Knee Osteoarthritis: A Systemic Review and Meta-analysis of Randomized Phase III Clinical Trials

options Format Abstract Objectives: To evaluate the safety of low-dose tanezumab in the treatment of knee or hip osteoarthritis (OA). Methods: Databases were searched up to September 2019 for phase III randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Eleven phase III RCTs comprising 11,455 patients were eligible. The pooled estimates of safety outcomes were assessed and expressed using relative risks (RRs) and 95% confidence intervals with a random-effects model. Results: Tanezumab significantly increased (...) the incidence of rapidly progressive OA (RPOA; RR = 9.07, 95% CI = 1.21-67.90, P = 0.03) and abnormal peripheral sensation (APS; RR = 2.68, 95% CI = 1.64-4.37, P < 0.00001) compared with placebo. No significant difference was found in terms of incidence of total joint replacement (TJR; RR = 1.13, 95% CI = 0.76-1.68, P = 0.55) or withdrawal due to adverse effects (AEs; RR = 1.26, 95% CI = 0.79-2.00, P = 0.33). The tanezumab group showed a statistically higher incidence of RPOA (RR = 3.96, 95% CI = 2.23-7.04

9. Glucosamine & Chondroitin: Natural remedies for osteoarthritis?

Glucosamine & Chondroitin: Natural remedies for osteoarthritis? November 2, 2020 Glucosamine & Chondroitin: Natural remedies for osteoarthritis? Clinical Question: Does glucosamine and/or chondroitin improve pain for patients with osteoarthritis? Bottom Line: Glucosamine and chondroitin do not appear to be effective in higher-quality, larger and/or publicly funded studies. If studies at high risk of bias are included, at best ~10% more people will have meaningful reduction in pain with either (...) : • Only one RCT examined meaningful pain reductions: effect similar to components alone. 12 • Change in 100-point pain scale: not different from placebo. 3,18 o Limits: mostly knee osteoarthritis studied. 1 No benefit of glucosamine or chondroitin over placebo in publicly funded 1 , high-quality, or larger RCTs. 4,12 Context: • Many meta-analyses report “standard mean differences” which are difficult to apply clinically and are not reported here. 2,4,5,7,9-17 • Pain studies should consider both

Disease Course, Clinical Presentation, and Risk Factors for Osteoarthritis The age of OA onset, sequence, and distribution of joint (...) involvement and disease progression varies. Osteoarthritis is diagnosed at a median of 55 years of age, and patients may live approximately 30 years with the disease. Patients with OA may present to providers with minimal symptoms or have incidental findings on physical examination or radiologic testing. Patients with symptomatic OA typically present with joint pain, aching, stiffness, and limited walking ability.[29] Knee OA is usually bilateral but one knee may be affected more severely; hip OA
