According to the National Institutes of Health, liver cirrhosis is caused by scar tissue replacing healthy tissue in the liver. This scar tissue prevents the liver from working normally. As cirrhosis gets worse, the liver can begin to fail.
Currently, there is no cure for liver cirrhosis and no effective treatment to stop or reverse it. This is why it is so important that medical research on new treatments for cirrhosis continues, and why we hope you will consider participating in our study.
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the investigational medication in people with liver cirrhosis. The total time of study participation, including the screening process for eligibility, will be approximately 2 months.
Study participation includes an 8-night stay plus outpatient visits to our comfortable study center. Compensation up to $2,500 may be available for time and travel.
It is very important to conduct research studies seeking to learn more about potential medications for liver cirrhosis. These research studies require volunteer participants, which is why we ask for your help. If you provide your contact information, we will reach out to you to provide more information about the study. You can decide if participation is a good option for you.
Qualified study participants must:
*Be 18 to 75 years of age
*Have a diagnosis of liver cirrhosis
This is not a complete list of requirements to participate. Please provide us with your contact information so we can discuss these and additional requirements with you.
Your contact information will remain confidential. It will only be used to contact you regarding participation in this study.
Compensation up to $2,500 may be available for time and travel.
If you are interested in participating or just wish to learn more, please provide your contact information. We will contact you within two business days after your submission.
Doctors and scientists are constantly discovering new medications and devices that may help prevent, detect, diagnose, control, and treat illnesses. A clinical trial or research study is a scientific study that tests these new discoveries. Clinical trials depend upon the participation of volunteers.
There is no guarantee that subjects will receive any benefit from participating in this study. However, this research study may yield new information that could benefit people in the future by helping to answer questions about the effectiveness and safety of the study treatment.
Participation in a research study is completely voluntary. In all research studies, qualified potential participants are first informed about the research study in detail. After receiving this information, all participants must give their consent in writing to proceed. Some research studies involve more tests and doctor visits than the participant would normally have for an illness or condition.
Health Insurance is NOT required to participate.
You will not be charged for the study medication, study-related procedures and tests, or study visits.
Before participating in a trial volunteers must meet specific requirements. These requirements are based on various factors, such as your age, medical history, current health status, current medications, and allergies. The circumstances that allow one to participate are called Inclusion Criteria and those that prevent participation are called Exclusion Criteria. These requirements are used to ensure the accuracy of the trial as well as the safety of all participants. We will not know whether you satisfy all study requirements until we speak with you and, if appropriate, complete a screening assessment at our facilities.
The Texas Liver Institute's vision is to lead scientific advancements in understanding liver diseases, developing treatments, and raising global awareness through education. The Institute sets the standard of excellence in liver disease care, providing for our patients' well-being, alleviating suffering, and inspiring hope through access to the most promising new treatments available today.
