The study was conducted in the rheumatology clinic of Imam Hospital, Ardabil University of Medical Sciences, in Ardabil, Iran, from April 2008 to April 2010. A traditional method of managing knee pain in Iran, the authors conducted a pilot, prospective, comparative, randomized, double-blinded trial of topical virgin olive oil therapy versus the NSAID piroxicam gel in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis. Overall, the findings of this study suggest that treatment for knee osteoarthritis with topical virgin olive oil is associated with greater improvement in all outcome measures compared to treatment with piroxicam gel. The differences increased over time in favor of the olive oil.
