The REACH Clinical Core is launching the comeBACK study - a longitudinal, multicenter, observational study of chronic low back pain (cLBP). The study is led by Core Directors Conor O’Neill, MD, Dennis Black, PhD, and Patricia Zheng, MD at UCSF, plus the comeBACK Site Directors (Scott Fishman, MD (UCD); Shalini Shah, MD (UCI); Mark Wallace, MD (UCSD). They plan to recruit 400 patients across the four clinical sites with up to 24 months of follow-up. The objective of the comeBACK study is to perform deep phenotyping of cLBP patients based on combined biopsychosocial variables to define cLBP subtypes, establish related phenotyping tools for routine clinical evaluation, and improve cLBP outcomes. Stay tuned for more information regarding the comeBACK website launch and patient recruitment!
