12. What is the optimal treatment duration with DONA™?
Clinical studies have shown that the optimal short-term treatment duration with DONA™ for the relief of osteoarthritis symptoms should be 12 weeks (i.e. 3 months). Since, the benefit achieved is long-lasting, i.e. for at least 2 months after the end of such a treatment course, the product can be taken in cycles predetermined as such, or anyway at the recurrence of symptoms.
However, very recent, long-term trials have shown that if taken continuously for at least 3 years, DONA™ can prevent the progression of osteoarthritis, i.e. of both symptom and joint structure changes, without major safety concerns.
