Brief Summary:
OA-bi-Blind is a randomized double-blind study on the treatment of osteoarthritis of the Bilateral knee: autologous bone marrow concentrate vs. hyaluronic acid.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Osteoarthritis, Knee Biological: injection of autologous bone marrow concentrate Biological: injection of hyaluronic acid. Phase 4

Detailed Description:
a randomized, controlled, double-blind study and we will be evaluated and compared the clinical and radiological results of concentrated autologous bone marrow against the hyaluronic acid in patients with bilateral knee osteoarthrosis . In randomization, one knee will be treated with autologous bone marrow concentrate and other knee with hyaluronic acid, then every patient is considered both in control and treatment group, limiting the heterogenity between groups and will not be informed of the knee assigned to the treatment group.

Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: autologous bone marrow concentrate vs. hyaluronic acid.
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
