Clinical trials participants take a more active role in their healthcare, gain access to investigational research medications before they are widely available, and help others by contributing to medical research.
We have several clinical trial research studies that are available to join. To speak with a representative and learn which studies you can benefit from, or just for more information please fill out the form below or call us at 916-434-8230 or 916-487-8230.
A list of our current studies is shown below. For more information about any of the studies please click on the study link:
Type 2 Diabetes, also called adult-onset;or non-insulin-dependent diabetes, is a chronic condition that affects the way your body metabolizes sugar (glucose), your body’s main source of fuel.
Insulin is a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells. When you have type 2 diabetes, your body doesn’t produce enough insulin and/or is resistant to the effects of insulin. As a result, those with type 2 diabetes cannot maintain a normal glucose level; Untreated, the consequences of type 2 diabetes can cause numerous symptoms and medical problems.
Even though there’s no cure for type 2 diabetes, you can manage or even prevent the condition through healthy diet and exercise, and if that’s not enough there are medications to help manage the condition.
High Cholesterol has no symptoms, but over time is a risk factor for developing cardiovascular problems such as heart attack or stroke. There are other cardiovascular risk factors including diabetes, cigarette smoking, high blood pressure, and a family history of heart disease.
You can control certain factors such as diet, obesity and physical activity but there are factors beyond your control such as your genetic makeup. If you think you have high cholesterol and you are interested in participating in a medical study in Sacramento or Lincoln, call today!
COPD, or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, is a progressive disease that makes it difficult to breathe. “Progressive” means the disease gets worse over time. COPD can cause shortness of breath, chronic cough with mucous production, wheezing, and frequent respiratory infections. Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of COPD. Most people who have COPD smoke, or used to smoke.
COPD develops slowly. Symptoms often worsen over time and can limit your ability to do routine activities. Severe COPD may prevent you from doing even basic activities like walking, cooking, or taking care of yourself.
Gout is a very painful form of arthritis. It occurs when too much uric acid builds up in the body. It is characterized by sudden, and severe attacks of pain accompanied by redness and tenderness in or around a joint. Quite often, Gout attacks the joint at the base of the big toe.
An acute gout attack can wake you up in the middle of the night feeling like your big toe is on fire. The affected joint is hot, swollen and may be so tender that even the weight of the sheet on it feels intolerable. Fortunately, gout is treatable.
Irritable bowel syndrome is a common disorder that affects your large intestine (colon). Irritable bowel syndrome commonly causes diarrhea, constipation, and/or abdominal cramps. Despite these uncomfortable signs and symptoms, IBS doesn’t cause permanent damage to your colon. There are IBS treatments such as diet, lifestyle changes and medications that can help.
Most people with IBS find that symptoms improve as they learn to control their condition. The signs and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome can vary widely from person to person and often resemble those of other diseases.
Asthma is a long-term disease that attacks the lungs and causes the airways to become inflamed and narrow. It’s one of the most common chronic conditions found in children, but adults can suffer from asthma too. Asthma is known for causing attacks that can take several different forms. The most common symptoms of this disease are recurring wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and shortness of breath. Asthma isn’t contagious, so there’s no danger that asthma sufferers will give the disease to someone else.
Because asthma is a chronic condition, people who suffer from it have asthma all the time. However, they only have attacks at certain times. Finding out what triggers asthma attacks, also known as flareups or exacerbations, is essential to controlling the disease. Triggers include substances found in homes, in workplaces and outdoors.
Women deal with an array of symptoms during and after menopause. Many of these symptoms are caused by a lack of estrogen production, and vaginal dryness is no exception. While dryness after menopause isn’t a life-threatening condition, it can cause significant discomfort and emotional distress. In addition to feeling pain or irritation, you may also find that you’re not interested in your romantic partner anymore or avoid activities such as exercising that can cause pain.
Dealing with dryness after menopause can be as much of an emotional challenge as a physical challenge. Many women are too embarrassed to talk to their partners and doctors about it. In fact, experts estimate that only about 25 percent of women who suffer from post-menopausal dryness seek treatment for the problem. While the embarrassment surrounding vaginal dryness is understandable, it’s important to remember that you don’t have to suffer.
