Dr. R. Carter W. Jones III, M.D. Ph.D. leads the Research team at Colorado Clinic. We are currently focusing
our efforts on the CLEAR study.
Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve
– the longest nerve in the entire body. The sciatic nerve begins
in the lower back, and branches through the hips and buttocks and down
each leg. Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve gets pinched, usually
by a herniated disc in the spine. This pressure on the nerve causes it
to become inflamed and irritated - resulting in pain, tingling, or numbness
that starts in the lower back and travels down the leg.
If you struggle with sciatica pain, you may qualify for the CLEAR Clinical
Study. The study is evaluating SP-102, an investigational, non-opioid
injection designed to relieve sciatica-related back and leg pain. SP-102
is injected into the lower back while at the doctor’s office.
The CLEAR Study is currently being conducted at select locations throughout
the U.S. If you qualify and choose to participate, you will receive all
study-related care at no cost. This includes the SP-102 injection as well
as any examinations or visits required for the study.
The CLEAR study is being conducted at Colorado Clinic’s Aurora Office by:
