Shingles Clinical Trials
Are you suffering from the effects of shingles? It’s a reactivation of the chickenpox virus that produces a very painful rash. Medical researchers still don’t know what causes this reaction, but it’s a risk for anyone who has gotten chickenpox before. If you have developed this painful rash, you could qualify for a shingles clinical trial at our clinic in DeLand, Florida.
Clinical trial participants can gain access to new treatments and can receive compensation. If you’d like to learn more about what it’s like to participate in a clinical trial at Avail Clinical Research, please take a few moments to review our patient resource section.
If you’d like to enroll in a shingles clinical trial, you can fill the form on this page to see if you qualify. All you need to provide for us is your name, your number and a valid email address. A member of our research team will be contacting you shortly to discuss next steps in the enrollment process. If you have any other questions, please give us a call at (386) 785-2400.
Do You Qualify for a Study in DeLand?
- Have you developed shingles?
- Have you developed a painful rash on your body?
- Are you willing and able to comply with clinic visits and study-related procedures?
- Are you enrolled in another clinical trial at this time?
- Most of investigative studies are only open to volunteers who are at least 18 years old
If you answered “yes” to the first three questions and “no” on the last one, then you could qualify for one of our fibromyalgia clinical trials. Please note that most studies are only open to volunteers who are at least 18 years old. Also, all volunteers will need to submit a signed informed consent form before they can be enrolled.
Compensation for Clinical Trial Participation
All study related medical care is provided free of charge during a clinical trial. This includes:
- Physical examinations
- Laboratory services
- Study-related medication
You can also receive compensation as someone who participated in a clinical trial. The actual stipend that patients can receive will vary based on the type of study they are taking part in.
Signs and Symptoms of Shingles
If you got chickenpox when you were younger, than the virus that produces shingles is already inside your body. When the virus reactivates, the early symptoms can include:
- Acute sensitivity to light
- Symptoms that closely resemble the flu
The symptoms tend to get a little more intense as the rash develops. Patients may experience:
