Have you been told you have a condition called ‘Avascular Necrosis’ or ‘Osteonecrosis’? If so, could we talk to you about a new study that is currently being thought about?

The National Institute for Health Research is looking to fund a study to decide if one drug or a combination of drugs might improve pain and movement for individuals with these painful conditions.

We would like to invite people who have experienced hip pain due to the above conditions to join us for an informal meeting to talk about the proposed study, and to ask your opinions about the study we are thinking we would run – YOU WOULD NOT BE JOINING OR BE ASKED TO JOIN THE STUDY. 


Join us for a meeting on Friday 4th September in Oxford at the Botnar Research Centre at the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences. We will provide light refreshments and will reimburse you for your time and travel.

If you are interested in knowing more and would like to get involved, please call Vicki Barber on  01865 223463 or email
