Brief Summary:
A follow-up study to assess the long-term safety of intra-articular (IA) administration of UBX0101 in patients with painful knee osteoarthritis (OA).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Knee Osteoarthritis Drug: UBX0101 or placebo

Detailed Description:
This is a blinded, multi-center study to provide approximately 1 additional year of follow-up for patients with knee OA who participated in a randomized placebo-controlled study of IA UBX0101. No intervention is planned and patients will have 4 scheduled visits to collect follow-up assessments. The primary objective is to evaluate long-term safety and tolerability of IA administration of UBX0101 in patients with painful knee OA.

Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients with moderate to severe painful knee OA who participated in a randomized, placebo-controlled study of UBX0101 and who consent to having blinded follow-up at the study site for 1 additional year of follow-up. Patients are permitted to take standard-of-care, background medications for OA.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with knee OA who have completed a randomized placebo-controlled study of UBX0101.
  • Patients who are willing and able to consent to having blinded, long-term follow-up; consent via legally authorized representative is not accepted.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with any condition that, in the opinion of the Investigator, would likely interfere with adhering to the study schedule of visits for 12 months.
  • Patients who are scheduled to undergo knee arthroplasty on either knee during the study.
  • Patients who anticipate arthroscopic surgery on either knee at any time during the study.
  • Patients who plan to receive treatment with an anti-nerve growth factor agent during the study.
  • Patients who plan to participate in another investigational study (including interventional studies of investigational drugs and investigational treatments [e.g., braces, stem cells, and procedures]) during the study.
