– Between 40 and 90 years old

Exclusion criteria:

Success criteria:

Decrease of the symptoms and improvement of the functional scales at the end of the treatment. This treatment must be better than the intraarticular therapy.

Discussion:

In this CCE we want to probe that the ACTEN therapy is better compared with intraarticular therapy (Hyaluronic Acid and Platelet-Rich Plasma) decreasing the symptoms of the gonarthrosis.

The 108 patients were randomly assigned in 3 groups.
The CCE lasts 3 months and the patients will be scheduled every 2 weeks.
The surveys we will use are: WOMAC, SF-12 and VAS in the baseline, 1 month and 3 months.
A blood sample will be taken to all patients.
All of the patients will receive an intraarticular injection

Group 1 placebo (saline solution)
Group 2 HYALURONIC ACID
Group 3 PLATELET – RICH PLASMA

All of the patients will receive an oral therapy
*All of the oral therapy was changed to a metallic package (25 g).

Group 1: ACTEN
Group 2 and 3: placebo (liquid chlorophyll)
