Enroll in BACPAC's BEST clinical trial!

UCSF recently became part of BACPAC's BEST clinical trial and participated in the consortium-wide kickoff meeting. BEST stands for "Biomarkers for Evaluating Spine Treatments", and is comprised of four proven treatments for chronic (long term) low back pain. By looking at links between peoples' traits, or phenotypes, the BEST trial will aim to learn what treatments are most effective for an individual based on their traits, to then be able to propose treatments for participants with similar biomarkers.


Individuals must be at least 18 years old and have had low back pain for at least 3 months and on at least half the days in the past 6 months. Other criteria apply as well. Please direct all individuals who are interested in participating in the study here.
