· provide friendly, personalized medical care in a research setting
PARTICIPATION IN THE CLINICAL TRIALS IS ABSOLUTELY FREE.
All study related medications are free. All physician visits are free. All lab work is free. There are no insurance co-payments, claim forms or fees. Insurance or provider authorizations are not needed but you are encouraged to discuss any trial with your primary care provider. Participants are under the care of Dr. Weinstein for all study related procedures.
Subjects in all clinical trials are compensated for their time. The amount of compensation varies with each clinical trial.
All clinical trials are designed with foremost regard to participant’s safety. Protocols are reviewed by an independent Investigational Research Committee which protects participants rights and makes sure the trial is carried out properly
All study medications have been taken by other participants prior to the trials at the Research Center.
The treatments are strictly monitored by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the government agency that approves all new medications in the United States.
· Duration of Studies
Trials may last for a day, week or for months. Some trials last for over a year. Visits may occur weekly or up to every few months.
· Study visits
Visits may vary in length from less than a half hour up to a full day depending on the study. We are aware of participants busy schedules and offer two convenient locations and extended and weekend hours to accommodate school age children and working adults.
There is no obligation either to enroll or complete any study. You may withdraw at any time. Ongoing medical care should continue with your physician.
We invite all individuals of any age with asthma or allergies to participate in a number of clinical trials of new medications designed to treat asthma. We are currently accepting enrollment in a number of trials for both children and adults with asthma or allergies. All study related medications, lab work and physician visits are free.
