5 Clinical Research Opportunities for Women in Florida

Are you a woman in Florida who is looking to participate in clinical research? Volunteering for a clinical study will make you part of a research process that will help improve the health of millions.

Women with underlying health concerns are encouraged to participate in these studies as a contribution to medical research. Read on to learn about five great clinical research opportunities for women in Florida.

1. G8 Liver Function Study

One available research opportunity for women is our G8 study. This study evaluates how the drug G8 is absorbed and processed by patients with impaired liver function.

To qualify, you must be between the ages of 18 and 75. You must also be postmenopausal or have had a hysterectomy. Participants should have decreased liver function or a condition that affects their livers, such as fatty liver disease. The duration of the study will be 12 days, with a singular oral dose of the study drug.

2. M20 Kidney Function Study

Our M20 study is a great research opportunity for women in Florida. We are recruiting women 18 to 75 years old who are postmenopausal or have had a hysterectomy.

You must have reduced kidney function and receive hemodialysis treatment three times per week to participate. This study examines how the drug M20 is absorbed and broken down in patients with kidney disease.

3. 07 Liver Function Study

Another clinical study or clinical trial for women is the 07 study. This trial, for individuals 18 to 80 years old, looks at how the study drug is processed in the bodies of men and women with reduced liver function. It also assesses the safety and efficacy of the study drug by those with a moderate degree of liver impairment.

4. The Roles of Gut Microbiome in UTI Susceptible Women

Women in Florida who are prone to urinary tract infections may be interested in this clinical study by the University of Florida and the United States Department of Agriculture.

The two organizations are collaborating to evaluate the role that gut microbiomes play in UTI-susceptible women. Their specific goal is to look at how the bioactive compounds in cranberry juice can both positively and negatively impact urinary tract infections.

This is an interventional clinical trial looking for an estimated 160 participants. A number of these participants will be given 20 to 30 ounces of cranberry juice per day, while others will be given 20 to 30 ounces of apple juice per day. The sugar content and calories of each juice will be matched.

The study will continue for three weeks to determine how each juice affects women who are prone to UTIs.

5. Grateful Strides Toward Physical Activity and Well-Being for Black Breast Cancer Survivors

The University of Florida and the National Institute on Aging are conducting a clinical research study on the effect of physical activity and gratitude intervention on older African American breast cancer survivors.

Researchers aim to examine how gratefulness activities and regular physical exercise can positively impact biomarkers in Black women who have overcome breast cancer. This is an interventional study that will require an estimated 28 participants.

Each participant will receive a gratitude journal in which to document the things they feel grateful for each day. They will also be asked to keep track of their physical activity and how it impacts their mood. The study will be conducted for eight weeks in total.
