Clinical research studies evaluate the newest potential treatments before they’re available to the general public. Patients who volunteer as participants typically receive the treatment in question free of charge in exchange for information about the effects of the treatment.
By joining a clinical research study, you can help further medical knowledge about your disease and can contribute to helping other people get the help they need in the future.
At Riverhills Neuroscience, studies are conducted by eminently qualified, certified clinical research professionals.
If you participate in a clinical research study, you’ll come to the office for regularly-scheduled appointments for the duration of the trial, which can last from a few months to years.
As a multidisciplinary neurology practice, Riverhills Neuroscience conducts ongoing research to improve the quality of care available to patients living with neurological diseases. The practice has conducted research studies related to:
While many innovative and highly effective treatments are available for patients today, Riverhills Neuroscience is committed to continually seeking newer and more effective options until true cures are found.
Riverhills Neuroscience offers new clinical research participation opportunities to qualifying patients regularly. Clinical research studies have a limited enrollment period, so the opportunities change over time.
At this time, the practice is hosting a research study to evaluate Tapavadon, a potential new treatment for early- and late-stage Parkinson’s disease. This treatment involves taking tablets daily.
Every clinical research study has its own unique requirements, which may include:
Most clinical studies have specific age ranges, such as 40-80.
Clinical studies may accept only male or female participants.
The medications you currently take can qualify or exclude you from a clinical study, as the study drug may interact with other medications.
Your treatment history, including past surgeries, may qualify or disqualify you from a research study. For example, a study for a Parkinson’s disease drug might exclude patients who previously had a deep brain stimulation procedure.
Clinical research studies may also have other requirements. Riverhills Neuroscience is happy to help patients enroll in clinical research studies. To learn more about current opportunities, call the office or click the online contact button now.
