Why Should I Participate?

‘Unbearable’, ‘tear jerking’, ‘horrendous’, ‘excruciating’, ‘debilitating’, ‘indescribable’—a gout flare-up is a unique kind of pain you likely wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy. We are searching for Springfield area applicants to participate in a clinical research study investigating a new medication to improve treatment options for people that experience recurring uncontrolled gout episodes. If you believe you’d be a fit for this study, contact Clinvest Research to receive study-related care.

What Should I Expect?

Dr. True and Clinvest are seeking motivated research volunteers in the Springfield area. The purpose of this research study is to assess the safety and tolerability of pegloticase with methotrexate in adults with uncontrolled gout. Qualified volunteers will be required to take methotrexate throughout the study and receive a randomized dose of pegloticase. Completion of the study would involve coming into the office for 19 appointments over an approximate 25 week period including a 4 week screening period. Your first appointment would last approximately 2 hours. If you qualify and choose to volunteer, we would provide the investigational study drug and all study-related procedures at no cost to you (including basic study-related physical exams, bloodwork, ECG’s, urine drug/pregnancy tests and X-rays). Compensation of up to $100 per study visit may be provided for your time and travel.
