Participate in a Migraine Research Study
If you or someone you love suffers from migraines, perhaps you should consider participating in a clinical research study. Perhaps the best reason to participate in a clinical trial is so that you can take an active role in your health care, by educating yourself regarding your condition. You will obtain access to top quality medical care from our Board Certified physicians at a medical research healthcare facility specializing in migraines.
Health insurance is not necessary to participate. Patients who qualify for our clinical trials will receive all study related care and treatment at no cost. In some cases you may be compensated for your time and travel. You may even gain access to research treatments before they are widely available.
Without volunteers for clinical trials, improved treatments, including a cure for migraines could never become a reality.
The ultimate goal of migraine research is the relief of all migraine episodes. Today it is possible for this to be accomplished in a small percentage of people and ultimately we hope to vastly improve the percentage over the next several years.
Today we do have new treatments primarily because we have a greater understanding of how a migraine is caused. Some of our latest research focuses on controlling the neuropeptide called calcitonin gene related peptide [CGRP]. If we can block this neurotransmitter from working we can significantly influence the potential for a migraine to develop. Today we are studying compounds that can block CGRP at the molecular level.
