Clinical Research Studies are at the heart of all medical advancement. Researchers enroll volunteers in clinical trials to test new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. They are intended to offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future. With your help we can move a step forward and help the people that are looking for hope.
Infectious diseases are disorders caused by organisms — such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Many organisms live in and on our bodies. They're normally harmless or even helpful. But under certain conditions, some organisms may cause disease. Although each infectious disease has unique signs and symptoms, general ones may be: fever, diarrhea, fatigue, muscle aches, and coughing. The following medical conditions encompass diseases caused by the invasion of a pathogen, including bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites.
Every year, we conduct clinical trials for the flu and other infectious disease. If you or a loved one are experiencing any symptoms, please don't hesitate to contact us as you may be eligible for a clinical study.
Women experience unique health issues and conditions, from pregnancy and menopause to gynecological conditions, such as uterine fibroids and pelvic floor disorders. The health topics listed below affect women only. Some other conditions affect men too but affect women primarily or more severely.
Women’s health as a whole is an important research area. Goals for women’s health research include studies to advance knowledge and understanding of the different research areas including gynecological issues, pregnancy and pregnancy outcomes, infertility and contraception, and other issues affecting a woman’s health and wellness.
Gynecological health and disorders affecting women include:
Pregnancy issues include:
Disorders related to infertility include:
Other disorders and conditions that affect only women include Turner syndrome, Rett syndrome, and ovarian and cervical cancers. Issues related to women’s overall health and wellness include violence against women, women with disabilities and their unique challenges, osteoporosis and bone health, and menopause.
Clinical trials strive to find better ways to prevent, detect, or treat these conditions. Should you or a loved one experience any of the above mentioned issues relating to women’s health, you may be eligible for a clinical trial.
Gastroenterology is an area of medicine that focuses on the health of the digestive system, or the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Conditions range from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) to hepatitis C. Additional conditions may also include:
Clinical trials can be used to study the screening, prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of diseases of the gastrointestinal system, or the treatment of disease symptoms If you or a loved one are experiencing any symptoms or have a condition mentioned above, please contact us as you may be eligible for a clinical trial.
Clinical trials for medical devices have similarities to those for pharmaceuticals, however, they’re unique as they’re designed to support a “reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness” for the marketing application and they’re focused on safety. A medical device, per The Section 201(h) of the Food, Drugs and Cosmetics Act, defines a medical device as any healthcare product that does not achieve its principal intended purposes by chemical action or by being metabolized. These devices can be as simple as a tongue depressor or a thermometer or as complex as robotic surgery devices. Medical devices may be initially conducted in a “pilot” (smaller) population with the disease or condition being studied. Below are some examples of generic medical devices:
Should you require a study be conducted for a medical device, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
Psychiatric clinical trials help researchers discover new effective treatments for mental health disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety and more. Clinical trials research not only examines possible new medications for the alleviation of symptoms, but also alternative treatments for these disorders as well, such as new psychotherapy techniques. The following medical conditions affect mental disorders and their treatment and prevention:
These clinical trials offer hope for many people and their families and they offer an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future. Should you or a loved one suffer from any of the above mentioned medical conditions, even if not listed above, please contact us as you may be eligible for a psychiatric clinical trial.
The urinary tract is your body’s drainage system for removing urine. Urine is composed of wastes and water. The urinary tract includes your kidneys, ureters, and bladder. To urinate normally, the urinary tract needs to work together in the correct order.
Urologic diseases or conditions include urinary tract infections, kidney stones, bladder control problems, and prostate problems, among others. Some urologic conditions last only a short time, while others are long-lasting.The following medical conditions affect the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive organs:
Clinical trials for urologic conditions offer hope for many people and they offer an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future. Should you or a loved one suffer from a urologic condition, even if not mentioned above, please contact us as you may be eligible for a urology clinical trial.
Endocrinology is the study of medicine related to the endocrine system which is the system that controls hormones. Your endocrine system includes eight major glands throughout your body, such as the thyroid gland, pituitary gland, adrenal gland, and pancreas. This system affects growth and development, metabolism, sexual function, and mood.
If your hormone levels are too high or too low, you may have an endocrine disease or disorder. Endocrine diseases and disorders also occur if your body does not respond to hormones the way it is supposed to. The following are conditions that may affect hormone producing glands:
Clinical trials for endocrinology conditions offer hope for many people and they offer an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future. Should you or a loved one suffer from an endocrine disease or disorder, even if not mentioned above, please contact us as you may be eligible for a clinical trial in endocrinology.
Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a condition in which fat builds up in your liver.
Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)
Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a type of NAFLD. If you have NASH, you have inflammation and liver cell damage, along with fat in your liver.
Usually, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) cause few or no symptoms. Certain health conditions—including obesity, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes—make you more likely to develop NAFLD and NASH. Doctors recommend weight loss to treat nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Weight loss can reduce fat in the liver, inflammation, and fibrosis. No medicines have yet been approved to treat NAFLD and NASH therefore being involved in a clinical study could be a patient’s last hope.
Should you or a loved one be suffering from any of the symptoms mentioned above or have been diagnosed with NAFLD/NASH, please contact us as you may be eligible for a clinical trial.
Fibrosis is the formation of excess fibrous connective tissue in an organ or tissue in a reparative or reactive process. This can be a reactive, benign, or pathological state. In response to injury, this is called scarring, and if fibrosis arises from a single cell line, this is called a fibroma.
Several clinical trials are being conducted about pulmonary fibrosis (PF) and other types of fibrosis conditions. Participating in a clinical trial may give you access to new treatment options and also help future PF patients. Some existing PF clinical trials are looking at drugs that can slow or block fibrosis, stem cell therapy and PF genes. Should you or a loved one be suffering from any of the symptoms mentioned above or have been diagnosed with fibrosis, please contact us as you may be eligible for a clinical trial.
Your support and generous contributions will offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.
