That sudden feeling of feverish heat is a symptom that nearly every post-menopausal woman has experience with. In fact, 67% of women experience hot flashes during that period shortly before entering menopause (perimenopause). While common, some cases can be severe. The most effective treatment is estrogen, but this can put one’s health at greater risk over time.
We are looking for people who’d be interested in helping our researchers develop better hot flash treatments.
Do I Qualify for a Hot Flash Clinical Study in DeLand?
This is the big question but you’ll need to speak to our recruitment team to find out. Each hot flash clinical trial we conduct has a unique set of qualification criteria. We’re looking for participants that are post-menopausal and experience hot flashes, but those aren’t the only factors.
While we never like to turn down someone who is interested in participating, these screenings are extremely important. If you have any questions, please call us at (386) 785-2400.
Here are few general qualification criteria to keep in mind:
- Applicants should be experiencing hot flashes regularly.
- A history of substance or alcohol abuse within the last 5 years can make you ineligible to participate.
- Volunteers who don’t have health insurance can still qualify to participate for one of our hot flash clinical trials.
Please note that as a participant, you reserve the right to drop out of a study if you see fit. To learn more about the rights and protections granted to each participant, please click here.

Compensation for Clinical Trial Participation
Our participants receive all study related care (including laboratory services, study medications and physical examinations) free of charge. Compensation for time and travel may also be provided to those who complete a study. It is important to note that compensation may vary depending on the RA clinical trial you are enrolled in.
Please call us at (386) 785-2400 if you have other questions.
Hot Flash Indications
While they tend to be more common at night, the number of hot flashes a woman experiences per day will vary. Some are worse than others, but most will subside after a few minutes. What happens during a hot flash? Here’s what you may experience:
- Rapid heartbeat
- Sudden sensation of heat that can spread across the face and upper body
- Skin becomes red and blotchy in appearance
- Sweat can break out across the upper body
- A swift chill often sets in after the hot flash subsides
While most women experience hot flashes for at least a year, they usually stop on their own within four to five years.
