It is said that the greatest gift is one which is given anonymously, giving when you do not know whether you will get direct personal benefit.  This is the gift that you have given by taking part in clinical research.  It is a brave and selfless act.  Your decision to participate may not only bring you hope, but also benefits public health and advances medical knowledge.

Thank you to the millions of people who give the gift of clinical research participation each year. You are our "Medical Heroes".

 

Currently Enrolling Studies

 

 

 

 Chronic Low Back Pain with Osteoarthritis  - RECRUITING new patients for this study

 Chronic low back pain is the second leading cause of disability in the United States today. It is generally

 defined as back pain that persists more than 12 weeks and is a symptom that can have many different

 causes. Given the lack of specific diagnosis in most cases, treatments are aimed at relieving pain and

 restoring normal activity.  

 

 

 

 Lumbar Radiculopathy - RECRUITING new patients for this study

  Your lower back is made up of 5 lumbar vertebrae (bones) which surround and protect your spinal cord.

 Nerves travel along your spinal cord, sending information back and forth from your brain to other parts of

 your body.  In between the vertebrae are flat, flexible discs that act as shock absorbers when you walk, run or

 jump.  These discs have a flexible outer ring and a soft gel-like center.  When a disc's gel-like center pushes

 through a weakened area of the disc it is called a herniated/slipped/ruptured disc.  The gel may place

 pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerves.  This "pinches" the nerve and can lead to leg pain. The purpose

 of this study is to evaluate the reduction of disc herniation and associated leg pain with the administration of

 an investigational drug.

 

 

 EARLY ALZHEIMER'S - RECRUITING new patients for this study

 

 

 

 CRPS - Coming Soon  

 Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, also know as CRPS, is a rare, chronic (long term) and progressive condition    

 characterized by severe pain, inflammation and changes in the skin.  Patients commonly describe the pain as a

 burning sensation, which affects one of the arms, legs, hands or feet.  CRPS used to be known as Reflex

 Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), however when possible causes of CRPS were later discovered, the name was

 changed.  Experts are not sure what causes CRPS.  We know that injury or surgery may have occurred before the

 onset of symptoms.  However in many cases, no previous injury took place and there is no evidence of

 neurological  or physical damage to the affected area.  There are two types of CRPS:

 1) CRPS  Type 1 - used to be known as RSD, Sudeck's Atrophy, Reflex Neurovascular Dystrophy, or

     Algoneurodystrophy. No damage has occurred. It is triggered by an apparent trivial injury, such as a fractured or

     sprained ankle.

 2) CRPS  Type 2 - used to be known as Causalgia.  This is triggered by a more serious injury, such as a broken bone or

      some surgical operation.  It may also be caused by a serious infection.  In all cases there is clear evidence that  

      nerve damage has occurred.
