Shingles Vaccine

Doctor conducting vaccination researchCurrently, there are a number of shingles vaccine clinical studies being conducted around the United States and in other places around the globe. For many people, the effects of their condition can keep them from living the life they want to.  While there are a number of shingles treatments available, researchers are constantly striving to develop more effective vaccines. Through new clinical trials on shingles vaccinations, they are discovering new ways to combat this infectious disease, as well as better methods of diagnosing shingles at an earlier stage. If you have exhausted all of the more traditional methods, and you’re still dealing with the symptoms of shignles, then it may be time to try something new.

In many cases patients who could benefit from investigational treatments often miss out on shingles 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 shingles vaccine clinical trials taking place 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 shingles vaccine clinical study, you may receive new investigational shingles 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 shingles vaccine 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.
