wondering what normal feels like?

Ankylosing Spondylitis

means starting every day with pain.

Current medications don’t work well for everyone

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a type of inflammatory arthritis that mostly affects the spine. People with AS have ongoing hip and low back pain, extreme fatigue, and stiffness in the morning. And some find that current medications used to treat AS symptoms don’t work well for them.

Researchers are testing an investigational medication

Right now, a clinical research study is enrolling volunteers to help test an investigational medication that you can take by mouth. Study doctors want to learn if it may help control your AS symptoms better than current medications. If you’re interested in volunteering for this study, click the link to the online questionnaire to get started.
