If you are an adult with degenerative disc disease, you may be eligible to take part in a clinical research study

The CASCADEStudy is looking at the impact of an investigational product for people experiencing chronic low back pain caused by degenerative disc disease. The investigational product aims to potentially reduce pain and improve disability that results from the disease.

You may be eligible to participate in this study, if you:

·         are 18 years of age or older

·         have a diagnosis of degenerative disc disease

·         have had chronic low back pain for at least 6 months

·         are still experiencing low back pain, despite trying other treatments for at least 3 months.


If you decide to take part in the CASCADE Study, your participation will last approximately 1 year. 

You will be required to attend the study center a number of times so that the study doctor can assess your degenerative disc disease and overall health. After the start of the study when you receive the investigational product, you will be required to visit every 3 months.
