Trials in progress

Research and the clinical trial are an essential part of the development of modern medicine. It ensures that pharmaceuticals are not released onto the market without evidence that they are effective and safe. Medical disasters in the past such as thalidomide show us what can happen if medicines are released to the public without proof of their safety.

At the moment we are seeking participants for clinical trials into new treatments for the following conditions:

  • Insulin resistance
  • Type 2 Diabetes

We are also seeking participants for studies on polycystic ovary syndrome

Insulin Resistance

Are you male? Aged 50 – 74?

Why not join T4DM, a research study using diet and testosterone to prevent type 2 diabetes?

To find out if you could join the study and receive free access to Weight Watchers plus treatment with either testosterone or a placebo visit the website or contact Ms Lee Mahoney on 6457 4402 or t4dm@kimr.org

 

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

We are looking to identify genes that may contribute to polycystic ovarian syndrome.

We need women to donate a blood sample who either:

  • Have a diagnosis of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)

                                                  OR

  • Have a history of regular menstrual periods

For more information contact email Jocelyn@kimr.org or contact Vanessa from the study’s facebook page.

 

Coeliac disease

We are currently investigating a possible link between bone health and strength and coelic disease. We are looking for people with osteoporosis with or without coeliac disease to complete an online questionnaire.

Your identity  will not be disclosed and for analysis will be replaced by a study code number.  If you would like a paper version of the questionnaire or if you have any questions about the study, please contact Lee on (08) 6457 4402 or email lee@kimr.org.
