Yes, I have ulcerative colitis.
Why should I participate in a clinical trial?
Get reimbursed for time and travel
You get free expert health care for the duration of the trial
You potentially get access to drugs that are not available to the general public
You will help other people with UC and help researchers discover new ways to treat UC
What exactly is a clinical trial?
Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect or treat disease.
A clinical trial might include:
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. Our clinical trials are also focused on improving the quality of life for people with ulcerative colitis.
Are clinical trials safe?
The safety of our participants is our highest priority. You will receive regular screenings and checkups to not only evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment, but to also monitor your general health and watch for any potentially adverse side effects.
Do all participants get new drugs?
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.
Tell me more
Xera Med is conducting several clinical trials for Ulcerative Colitis (UC) in Boca Raton, FL (Palm Beach County). Patients receive free comprehensive medical care for the entire time they are enrolled in a study. Some UC studies last for over a year which means free, full-service care from world class physicians for that entire 12 months or more.
Opportunity for medical care throughout the study includes:
treatment with breakthrough drugs,
cutting edge diagnostic tests,
full physical exams,
follow up visits,
Patients receive reimbursement for time and travel which is paid at the time of every visit. Additionally, ulcerative colitis patients have access to free treatments -- some studies provide the latest UC medications on the market to compare with the new study treatment all at no cost and without any visit to a pharmacy. Some of our newest UC studies involve a non-fecal transplant, non-drug microbiome pill which landmarks a cutting-edge advancement in treatment for ulcerative colitis.
All of our UC patients are treated like first class at each visit as they enjoy a peaceful, comfortable, and relaxing atmosphere, in a luxe one-of-a-kind medical research center. There is no wait time for study visits and patients can be accommodated for whatever appointment times best fit their schedules.
