Paid Clinical Trials Aim to Conquer Spinal Fusion Pain

[fa icon="calendar'] May 9, 2017 / by Kathryn Cote posted in Clinical Trials

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

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

Paid Research Study Offers Non-Narcotic Treatment for Pain

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.

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.

Help the World Prevent Skin Cancer with Paid Research Studies

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.

Paid Clinical Trials—Know the facts!

[fa icon="calendar'] December 28, 2016 / by Robert Wallace, BS, CCRC - posted in Clinical Trials

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

We have all heard, read, or seen the ads: you will be paid for your participation in a clinical trial. It sounds good, but you should always be aware of what “paid clinical trials” or “paid research trials” actually means.

A clinical trial, research trial, or clinical study, is a program designed by a pharmaceutical or device company to research their medication or device for its safety and effectiveness in humans. Many of these programs offer individuals payment in exchange for their time, travel, and adherence to the guidelines for each specific trial.

Paid Clinical Trials—What is in the Fine Print

What is commonly not mentioned in these “clinical trials for money” ads is the extent of the commitment involved, or the fact that your insurance company could be billed for the service. These details all depend on the trial.

For example, a company looking to gather data on their newly FDA-approved device will typically charge your insurance company for the device and/or procedure. They may then provide follow-up visits at no cost to your insurance company, and include a “patient stipend,” a payment to the individual who is participating in the clinical trial. In this example, in exchange for a stipend of, say, $500, the participant may be required to attend 20 follow-up appointments, and they may also be required to alter their lifestyle for the duration of the study. Of course, 20 follow-up appointments means your health is being monitored very closely, much more than typical health insurance could provide!

Clinical Trial Holds Hope for Breaking the Psoriasis-Fatigue Cycle

[fa icon="calendar'] December 21, 2016 / by Robert Wallace, BS, CCRC - posted in Clinical Trials

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

If you suffer from psoriasis, you probably find that the holiday season brings more than cheer and excitement. The stress and fatigue that come with holiday preparations and non-stop festivities create the perfect recipe for plaque flare-ups. And those plaque flare-ups can actually make you more tired.

But Why Does Psoriasis Make Me So Tired?

There are proteins in the body, called cytokines, that are released during inflammatory reactions, such as psoriasis. It is hypothesized that these cytokines are working hard to help control the immune system’s inflammatory response—an activity that requires a lot of energy. This means that having the ability to control your psoriasis could actually save your body this output of energy, and this will make you feel better and less tired. And if you are less tired, you are less likely to have a flare up during a stressful time.

Clinical Trial Offers Hope for Psoriasis Sufferers

There is a plethora of pills, topical, and biologic injections that can help control psoriasis for many people. But if you have tried multiple therapies and nothing has worked, should you just keep taking or using something that provides minimal or no improvement? Most would say no!


Researchers are making advancements toward finding new, more ideal and effective medications for individuals dealing with the various types of psoriasis. If current therapies or medications haven’t worked for you, consider enrolling in a clinical trial.

Suffering from infertility can be an extremely emotional and difficult experience for individuals--and for couples. Without the ability to create a family, many feel less than whole. And solutions don’t always come easily.

Infertility is also a very common ailment. According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 1 in 8 couples suffer from some form of infertility, which may be related to one or both members of the relationship. The causes of infertility are varied, and some causes are much less common than others.

Hip Fractures - Causes and Treatment - PRG Clinical Research Trial

One of the most serious fall injuries is a broken hip. It is hard to recover from a hip fracture, and afterward many people are not able to live on their own. As the U.S. population ages, the number of hip fractures is likely to go up. More than 300,000 patients in the U.S. experience hip fractures each year with the number expected to increase to 700,000 by the year 2050, driven by the increased life spans and aging of the baby boom generation.
