Clinical trials are essential for advancing medical treatments of various illnesses. Participating in a clinical trial has many benefits to you, your family, and the patient population that shares your illness now or in the future. While each study will carry many benefits to the individual, they all have some shared benefits that help the wider community.

Participating in a study is easy and you will have:

  • Access to a team of experienced healthcare professionals every step of the way, at no cost to you
  • Free access to innovative medication or treatments that may not otherwise be available
  • Help the development of future cures

Current Trials

Cold and Flu Symptoms Study

We are currently conducting a clinical research program on healthy adults who experience cold and flu symptoms. Eligible patients will attend a single, in-office appointment when flu or cold-like symptoms are present; we estimate the visit to take 30-45 minutes. The research staff will confirm symptoms, take your temperature, perform a fingerstick, and perform a blood draw.

Those who qualify will be compensated $50 for their time.

Low Testosterone Study

The primary purpose of this study is to compare the effect of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) and matching placebo on major cardiovascular events. These include heart attack and stroke in men who do not produce and have symptoms of testosterone deficiency (hypogonadal men).

This is a phase 4, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study of topical (rubbed onto the skin) TRT in men with low testosterone (hypogonadal). “Phase 4” means that AndroGel 1.62% has already been approved by the FDA to treat certain causes of low testosterone, and this is a study to answer further questions about the effect of TRT, which could not be answered in earlier studies before the drug was formally approved.

Concluded Trials

Prevention Vaccine (Covid-19)

Dr. Fiel of Fiel Family & Sports Medicine was the Principal Investigator in the groundbreaking COVID-19 vaccine study by CCT Research. This study helped us research a potential new vaccine for the prevention of COVID-19.
