Physicians Research Group has partnered with P3 Research in New Zealand to offer the pharmaceutical, biotech, and device industry an alternative and cost-effective solution to conduct their early phase clinical trials.
Clinical Research Fastrack and Physicians Research Group have joined forces to help jumpstart careers in clinical research. Keep reading to learn more about this exciting partnership and what it means for aspiring individuals interested in clinical research.
In case you were wondering…it is remarkably easy to participate in a paid medical research study; it is just as easy to get paid for your participation. Better than that, you can help researchers make the world a better place for people suffering from the same condition as you.

National Suicide Prevention Week is this week and PRG is working with mental health professionals to help provide support and combat the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. You heard me, the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. I don’t know about you but I find that statistic staggering. Mental health professionals such as psychiatrists, psychologists, and even counselors dedicate their lives to helping individuals cope with mental health issues i.e., depression and anxiety. So why are so many people committing suicide? Is it the lack of accessibility to health care providers? Is it the fact that mental health issues can be a taboo topic in today’s society?
We have talked about this before...Narcotics are the “big guns” on the front line of pain relief, and their use has eased the suffering of millions who live with pain resulting from injury and the aftermath of surgical procedures. However, Narcotics have a dark side in the form of some fairly serious side effects. Constipation, nausea, dizziness, headache and fatigue take a toll on quality of life. More serious, though, is the potential for narcotic addiction.
Phoenix, Arizona - Physicians Research Group (PRG) and a leading orthopedic surgeon are currently enrolling participants in a clinical trial to test the efficacy of pain medication that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the relief of pain related to the fusion of two or three vertebrae. The goal of this research study is to decrease the pain experienced by spinal fusion patients.
Spinal fusion is a procedure that helps stabilize the spine of patients who experience chronic pain related to back injuries, herniated discs, degeneration of discs and vertebrae, the narrowing of the spinal canal, or damage caused by infections or tumors. The vertebrae are literally fused together, using either a synthetic bone substitute or bone that is harvested from the patient’s pelvis or taken from a bone bank.
Nearly a half a million patients undergo spinal fusion surgery each year with great success yet doctors note there can be a significant amount of pain during recovery. The worst pain is generally experienced

While women comprise roughly half of the world’s population, historically they have only represented about 30 percent of clinical research study participants. If you are a woman living in Arizona, you can help shift this statistic in tangible, way—all because you decided to participate in a clinical research study!
It's True! Women are Equal, but Different Biologically
Women are equal, but we now know that they are different, especially when it comes to matters of biology. Women and men differ biologically when it comes to muscle fiber, blood flow, fat storage, and metabolism (to name a few) which in turn may influence the effectiveness of certain medications, dosages, or treatments.
A 2015 research study conducted by Northwestern neuroscientists found an inherent biological difference between males and females in the molecular regulation of synapses in the hippocampus.
Physicians Research Group (PRG) and leading orthopedic group OrthoArizona are working together to create some happy news for people who are suffering from severe knee joint dysfunction.
Their Arizona-based clinical research study into a pain medication for patients undergoing total knee replacement surgery will offer its volunteers more than hope for a more comfortable recovery. Participants accepted to the trial will see the entire cost of the procedure covered by the pharmaceutical company that has commissioned the study. Participants will also be provided with a regimen of pain medication.
Paid Research Studies Can Help Millions
Effective pain management is an important element in recovery after knee replacement surgery. It allows patients to get moving more quickly, which means an easier and better rehabilitation, and fewer complications, such as blood clots.
Paid Research Study Targets Actinic Keratosis Lesions
Rough, scaly patches on the face, scalp and other areas that receive a lot of sun exposure could be more than just dry skin--especially if they are discolored. They could be evidence of a pre-cancerous skin condition called Actinic Keratosis, or AK. While many AK lesions remain benign, left untreated they hold the potential to become any type of skin cancer, particularly squamous cell carcinoma.
Rates of Actinic Keratosis In Arizona Are High
People in Arizona—especially those with fair skin—are among those who are particularly susceptible to AK. The state’s proximity to the equator and its altitude mean less atmospheric (UV) protection for residents. Additionally, Arizona's year-round warmth and sunshine entices many to spend long hours exposed to the elements. But all that glorious sunshine may also increase the risk for skin cancer.
If you have ever been diagnosed with Actinic Keratosis, you will know that dermatologists typically treat it one of two ways: with topical medication, or with cryo-freezing using liquid nitrogen. You should also know that researchers continue to look for treatments that offer better and faster results, and fewer side effects.
