23 men and 53 women suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee participated in a clinical study on Artosan arnica gel.
The efficacy and tolerability of the gel was evaluated using the WOMAC (Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthitis Index) scale. The researchers noted a significant improvement of symptoms. 69 (87%) patients rated the product as very good and 76% mentioned that they would use it again.(4)Two German studies show the efficacy of arnica gel. The first one evaluated muscle soreness after intense exercise (5) and the second one, varicose vein symptoms.(6) Another study gauged arnica ointment after carpal tunnel surgery. Compared to placebo, the product significantly reduced pain after 2 weeks.(7) A multicenter, randomized double-blind study involving 174 patients suffering from polyarthrosis of the fingers showed that the efficacy of A.Vogel Atrosan Gel® with the active ingredient Arnica montana is identical to that of a gel with a five per cent concentration of the synthetic analgesic ibuprofen.(8)
