Results showed that supplementation with NEM® significantly reduced joint pain and improved joint function rapidly (CBPI 1-week) and demonstrated a lasting improvement in joint pain (VCSA 6-week) leading to an improved quality of life (CBPI 6-week). Moreover, a profound chondroprotective effect was demonstrated following 6 weeks of supplementation with NEM® (CTX-II). There were also clinically meaningful results from a brief responder analysis, demonstrating that a significant proportion of treated dogs will benefit substantially from NEM® supplementation. The results of this peer-reviewed study were recently published online (https://dx.doi.org/10.2147/VMRR.S101842).
"This canine study on NEM® provides further evidence supporting NEM's ability to modify symptoms of pain, and it provides an alternative to the use of pharmaceuticals which have known detrimental side effects," mentioned Kenneth J. Kopp, DVM, the lead veterinarian for the trial.
Kevin J. Ruff Ph.D., MBA, CCRP – Sr. Director of Scientific & Regulatory Affairs for Stratum Nutrition – also commented on the study, "With so many dogs suffering from sub-optimal joint function, it's important for dog-owners to have safe and effective treatment options like NEM®. It was particularly gratifying to learn of the chondroprotective effect in this study, as we believe this to be the first of its kind in naturally-occurring joint disease in dogs."
