Influenza Vaccine


Clinical trial coordinator and her teamWhile there are currently a number of treatments available for influenza, researchers are constantly striving to develop more effective and safer vaccines. Through new clinical trials on influenza, they are discovering better ways of preventing this infectious disease, as well as better methods of diagnosing influenza following the onset of initial signals (fever and nausea). If you have exhausted all of the more traditional methods, and you’re still dealing with the symptoms of influenza, then it may be time to try something new.

In many cases patients who could benefit from investigational treatments miss out on influenza vaccine clinical studies because their doctor isn’t aware of a study in the area. In addition, there are some cases where patients feel they don’t need to be treated like a ‘guinea pig,’ and nothing could be further from the truth.

These influenza vaccine clinical trials taking place in Florida are testing new treatment methods, which are being developed by pharmaceutical and biotechnical companies, and they are designed specifically to test the safety and efficacy of treatments for humans. By volunteering for our fully supervised influenza vaccine clinical study, you may receive new investigational influenza vaccines that may help us all understand this virus.

The type of study being performed by Avail Clinical Research directly reflects your involvement. Participating in a influenza clinical trial in Florida can be as simple as agreeing to become 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.
