Pediatric Common Cold Clinical Trials
Has your child developed symptoms of the common cold? Depending on how severe it gets, medication may be required to reduce the symptoms of a cold. This can be difficult as a parent since children can develop symptoms several times a year. Our research team is conducting common cold clinical trials at our clinic in DeLand. If your child has developed a cold, then they could qualify.

Is a Common Cold Clinical Trial Right for Your Child?
It may seem odd that children would be included in a clinical trial, but it’s actually plays an essential role in medical research. Why? Children and adolescents often require treatments that are different than what is typically prescribed to adult patients.
As clinical researchers, there isn’t any way to know if a new pediatric therapy for the common cold is effective unless we’ve had a chance to work with younger participants.
We fully understand that you might be uncomfortable with the idea of enrolling your child in a clinical trial. However, if you are considering it or have any questions at all, we ask that you take a second to complete the form on this page. This way, one of our experts can contact you and answer any specific questions you might have.
Compensation for Time and Travel
All study related care (including laboratory services, study medications and physical examinations) are provided to participants free of charge. Participants that complete the study may also receive compensation for time and travel. It is important to note that compensation may vary depending on the type of clinical study an individual takes part in.
Common Cold Symptoms
The symptoms of the common cold usually begin to manifest within three days of patient being exposed to the cold-causing virus. Typical indications of the common cold can include a runny nose, sore throat, cough, sneezing, low fever, watery eyes, congestion, and sinus headaches. Unlike other viral infections, a cold is not likely to produce a high fever or cause significant fatigue on its own.
