Parkinson’s Disease Clinical Trials
Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease? As many as one million people in the US are living with this chronic, degenerative neurological disorder. If you’re reading this, then you may qualify for one of our Parkinson’s disease clinical trials in DeLand, Florida. By participating in a clinical trial, you’re helping researchers around the world take a crucial step toward better treatments and perhaps even a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

Why Clinical Trial Volunteers Are So Important
Quick question: Do you know how new treatments for Parkinson’s are developed?
Without clinical trials, we wouldn’t be able to develop treatments that are safe or more effective. While many understand this, only a small percentage of people ever take part in a clinical trial. In fact, under-enrollment challenges end up slowing down nearly 85 percent of clinical trials.
(A poll conducted by the Micheal J. Fox Foundation found that only 1 in 10 Parkinson’s patients ever participates in a clinical trial.)
Fortunately, we do know that the Parkinson’s patient community is interested in getting more involved in research. The challenge is that most are never made aware of the opportunities available in their local area. We want to change that for Parkinson’s patients living in Volusia County.
Do You Qualify for a Parkinson’s Disease Study?
If you haven’t participated in a clinical trial before, then you probably have plenty of questions. One of those may be, “How do I know if I qualify for a Parkinson’s disease clinical trial?” This isn’t easy to answer, since each study we conduct has a unique set of inclusion criteria. This also means that you’ll need to speak with our recruitment team to know for sure.
If you meet the inclusion criteria, then you’ll also need to read and sign our informed consent form before you can be enrolled in one of our clinical studies. The consent form is extremely important and will explain all of your responsibilities and rights as a clinical trial volunteer. If you have any questions about our Parkinson’s disease clinical trials or other studies at Avail Clinical Research, please call us at (386) 785-2400. Our office hours are from 7 AM to 5 PM every weekday.
