Clinical Trials



Reasons to Consider Participating in Clinical Medical Trials:

A clinical trial involves research using human volunteers (also called participants or subjects) that is intended to add to medical knowledge. There are two main types of clinical studies: clinical trials (also called interventional studies) and observational studies. In clinical trials, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or changes to participants' behavior, such as diet. (Learn about clinical studies. ClinicalTrials.gov. (n.d.). https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/about-studies/learn)

  1. You can receive expert medical care at leading Central Florida healthcare facilities while participating in important medical research. Our sites include South Lake Pain Institute Clermont, South Lake Hospital Center for Specialty Surgery and Clermont Radiology, Clermont, FL.
  2. You can help future generations – your children and grandchildren – by contributing to research. Medical research studies are a key component to the future of healthcare in the United States. Participating in a research study or a clinical trial has the potential to help both the individual participants and other individuals who have health conditions or diseases or might develop them in the future.
  3. You can offer hope to people with serious health conditions as well as researchers working hard to prevent, alleviate, or cure those conditions or diseases. Even if the treatment you try does not work, it helps scientists get one step closer to a breakthrough.


Current Research Trials

    • Alzheimer's disease (AD):  a new non-invasive wearable study device that delivers sensory stimulation and has the potential to slow the progression of mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease, from the comfort of home. (https://www.hopestudyforad.com/)
    • Post-surgical neuropathic pain (PSNP): first and only prescription strength capsaicin that is a topical, non-systemic, non-opioid pain treatment; it is currently approved in the US for the treatment of neuropathic pain associated with postherpetic neuralgia. 
    • Chemotherapy-induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN): topical formulation of amitriptyline, that inhibits pain signaling in the skin's nerve fibers.(https://cipn.clinicalenrollment.com/see-if-you-qualify//)
    • Diabetic Foot Osteomyelitis (DFO): clinical study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of APT's precision bacteriophage ("phage") therapy in patients with Diabetic Foot Osteomyelitis (DFO).(https://aphage.com/diabeticfootulcertreatment/#join)
    • Painful Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (PDPN): The purpose of this study is to see if a new experimental drug is safe and effective as a treatment for painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy. (https://studies.buildclinical.com/bcfs00651-eppicnet-pederson-diabeticneuropathy-slpi)
