20 February 2024 -

Health and wellness company Rapid Nutrition plc (Euronext Growth Paris:ALRPD) announced on Tuesday that it has been chosen as a key partner in the Osteoarthritis Prevention Study (TOPS) led by Wake Forest University.

This project, receiving USD17.1m in funding from major health organisations, is the largest investigation into osteoarthritis prevention through weight loss and exercise in women. The five-year study, led by Wake Forest University's Department of Health and Exercise Science, aims to enrol 1,230 women aged 50 and above, focusing on those at risk of osteoarthritis due factors such as overweight status.

Rapid Nutrition's participation underscores its commitment to advancing scientific research and promoting women's health globally, the company said.
