GERD Clinical Research
Currently, there are a number of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) clinical studies being conducted around the United States and in other places around the globe. Quite frankly, there are many people who are struggling with the effects of GERD on a daily basis. Unfortunately, for some people, the use of heartburn medication, antacids, and other common treatments for GERD are not enough to keep this medical condition from getting worse.
Through new clinical trials on GERD, researchers are discovering new ways to treat this age-old problem, as well as better methods of diagnosing GERD at an more treatable stage. If you have tried all of the more traditional methods, and you’re still dealing with symptoms of GERD, then it may be time to try something new.
In many cases patients who could benefit from investigational treatment often miss out on these GERD clinical trials in Florida because their doctor isn’t aware of a study in the area. In addition, there are some cases where patients feel they are going through so much they don’t need to be treated like a ‘guinea pig,’ and nothing could be further from the truth.
These GERD clinical studies in Florida are testing new treatment methods, which are being developed by pharmaceutical and biotechnical companies. They are designed specifically to test the safety and efficacy of treatments for humans. By volunteering for our fully supervised Florida GERD clinical study, you may receive new investigational GERD treatments that may help us all understand your condition.
The type of study being performed by Avail Clinical Research directly reflects your involvement. Sometimes, participating in a GERD clinical trial in Florida is as simple as agreeing to let our researchers have a copy of your test results, but most are more involved and would require some tests and a visit to our clinic. Participants are compensated for time and travel, and the study related care, including physical examinations, laboratory services and study medicines are all provided.
