What is a Clinical Trial?

The purpose of clinical trials is to give medical knowledge and research to help treat, diagnose, and possibly prevent a condition. Clinical research involves using human volunteers, and each clinical trial has a list of inclusion and exclusion criteria. Our providers will perform a history and exam to determine if you are a candidate for one of our clinical trials.

Our mission is to advance the science of medicine. Our dedicated medical professionals respect our research participants and pride themselves on providing accurate information.

Open and Enrolling Trials:

 
Ophthotech OPH2007

Phase 2A open label trial to assess the safety of Zimura administered in combination with Lucentis in subjects with Treatment-Naïve Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration.

 
Synchronize 301 and Synchronize 303
Pink Eye Research Study

Synchronize 301 and Synchronize 303 are investigating a non-antibiotic investigational drug for both adenoviral and bacterial conjunctivitis (pink eye). If you or someone you know has pink eye, or has been exposed and may soon show symptoms, please call our office to see if you (or they) may be eligible for our research study.

You and/or your child may be able to participate if you (or they):

  • Have had pink eye signs and symptoms (e.g. redness, watering) in at least one eye for no more than the past three days
  • Can take part in a research study for up to 13 days
  • Are willing to travel to the study center for appointments

For more information and to see if you qualify, call our office at 309-243-2400 and ask to speak with Therese Buie. Participants in clinical trials are compensated for their time and travel.
