About Xera Med
We are Plasma Med Research, now doing business as "Xera Med" which is derived from the Hebrew word "Zera" meaning "seed," as we launch outside of simply blood and plasma based clinical studies take on Phase 0, II-IV drug and diagnostics trials. Ultimately, we serve as the necessary starting point -- the seed -- required for researchers to cultivate better treatments and more accurate diagnostics.
Most of our clinical study successes have been in women's health. Consequently, our top study indications include: autoimmune diseases that predominantly affect women (i.e. Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Thyroid), infertility issues, general obstetrics, Zika in pregnancy, preeclampsia, endometriosis, women's sexual wellness, adult & pediatric gynecology, and ovarian, cervical & breast cancer.
Other clinical studies we conduct include gastroenterology, hematology, oncology, dermatology, neurology, psychiatry, ophthalmology, cardiology, endocrinology and general pediatrics.
Our direct connection to patients from multiple indications, strong recruitment & retention arm, and vast physician network allows us to provide impressive enrollment timelines with utmost quality.
What Are Clinical Trials?
Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect or treat disease. Treatments might be new drugs or new combinations of drugs, new surgical procedures or devices, or new ways to use existing treatments. The goal of clinical trials is to determine if a new test or treatment works and is safe. In fact, new medications can’t be sold in the U.S. until they’ve been through clinical trials. Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses.
If treatment for your disease isn’t available or if the standard treatment hasn’t worked for you, you might consider a clinical trial. Clinical trials can provide access to new or experimental treatments that otherwise aren’t available. However, there’s no guarantee that the treatment will work for you or even that you’ll receive it. Some participants in clinical trials get a placebo — a pill or liquid that looks like the new treatment, but has no active ingredients. Using placebos gives researchers something to compare with the drug being tested. You can’t control whether you receive the placebo or the new treatment. Not all clinical trials have a placebo component, as some clinical trials compare two different active treatments. Nonetheless, clinical trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for people in the future.
