CAHABA RESEARCH, INC. is a privately owned and operated research organization with three convenient locations in the Birmingham area. We are here to answer your questions and help volunteers get involved in clinical trials.
Participation in a clinical trial allows patients to play a more active role in their own health care, gain access to new research treatments before they are widely available and help others by contributing to medical research.
Volunteers participate in research studies for many different reasons: to help others suffering from the same medical conditions, to receive the newest treatments and access to free exams.
A clinical study or trial is a research study conducted under strict medical guidelines to determine the safest and most effective treatments for various health indications and to uncover new ways to improve health. Clinical studies may compare a new medical approach to a currently available one or to a placebo containing no active ingredients that would affect the health of the participant. Every study is different and each follows a specific protocol outlining the procedures, who may participate, visit scheduling, medications and dosage requirements. If you don't qualify for one study for a particular indication, it doesn't mean you won't qualify for the next study of the same indication, as each study has it's own unique requirements and qualifications.
Short for "influenza," the flu is an extremely contagious viral infection of the upper respiratory system - lungs, nose, throat - that causes fever, nasal and chest congestion, body aches, and fatigue. It may seem like a cold at first but, unlike a cold, onset of the flu occurs rapidly. Contact us today for information on the Flu "A" Study we are currently conducting.
