  3. VAS (100mm) AOS pain subscale score in the range of 30mm to 90mm for the study ankle
  4. Must be willing to discontinue use of oral and topical analgesia other than rescue use of acetaminophen for any pain including OA pain in the study ankle. Must also be willing to discontinue acetaminophen rescue medication for at least 24 hours before each study visit
  5. Abstinence from any IA or peri-articular injections in the study ankle during the course of the trial, except for the Investigational Product

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Significant pain from other joints or low back pain requiring chronic ongoing analgesic therapy
  2. Hindfoot deformities
  3. Substantial venous or lymphatic stasis in the legs
  4. Presence of one or more conditions that could confound pain and functional assessments in the study ankle, e.g., plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, sprains of the foot, or degenerative joint disease of the foot.
  5. Clinically-apparent tense effusion, signs of misalignment or instability in the study ankle
  6. Ankle x-ray findings of acute fractures, severe loss of bone density, avascular necrosis and/or severe deformity in the study ankle
  7. Surgery to the study ankle within the previous 12 months
  8. Unable to abstain treatment with NSAIDs or any pain management medications during the week (or five half-lives of the drug, whichever is longer) prior to Baseline Visit.
  9. Unable to abstain from treatment with topical analgesics during the washout period prior to screening visit and throughout the duration of the study. Washout period for topical analgesics is based on clinical investigator judgment (~ a few days).

  11. IA or local peri-articular corticosteroid injections to the study ankle within the previous three months; or to any other joint within the previous month; or any oral corticosteroid within the previous month.
