Do you have Vaginal Symptoms?

Magnolia ObGyn Research Center and Dr. Helena Kirkpatrick are testing a new investigational medication for Vaginal Infections.  We are currently seeking women to participate in this clinical research study.

If you have any of the following vaginal symptoms you may qualify:

  • Itching
  • Burning
  • Irritation
  • Odor
  • Discharge

To be eligible you must meet certain other requirements that will be explained to you.  Women selected for the study will receive free study-related medical care, including 2 or 3 clinic visits, and payment for their time and travel expenses. 

Do you have iron deficiency anemia and don’t respond well to oral iron medication?  You may be eligible to join our clinical research study!

Iron deficiency anemia is a type of anemia that commonly occurs after significant blood loss from a disease or medical condition.  The loss of iron means that your blood cells can’t carry enough oxygen, which often leaves you tired and breathless.

In this study, participants who do not respond well to oral iron medications or who need to raise their iron levels quickly will receive an investigational medication or Venofer®, an already approved iron medication.

You may qualify for this study if you:

  • Are 18 years of age or older
  • Have been diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia caused by a disease or condition, such as abnormal menstrual bleeding, gastrointestinal diseases, cancer, gastric bypass operations, or other conditions leading to significant blood loss.

If you join the study, it may last up to 15 weeks.  You will receive study medications and medical tests at no cost to you.

Planning your life around Heavy Periods?  Consider a research study for uterine fibroids.

If you have been living with heavy periods due to uterine fibroids, participating in a research study may be an option.  The Asteriod Studies are research studies evaluating the safety and effectivenes of an investigational oral medication for uterine fibroids.

You may be eligible to participate if you:

  • Are 18 years or older

I would like to be contacted by our Research Dept. about participation in a clinical trial. YesNo

Which trial are you interested in?

What is clinical research?

Clinical research is done to find out if a new medication is safe and effective. Researchers first develop a new drug in the laboratory. If it looks promising, it is evaluated in people in clinical trials. Carefully conducted clinical trials are the fastest and safest way to find new treatments that work. Patients who agree to participate in clinical research receive the new medication free of charge, are very carefully monitored and often are compensated for their time and travel expenses.

What can I expect if I choose to become involved in a clinical trial?

First you will be carefully screened to make sure that the study drug is appropriate for your health problem and that it would be safe for you. Then the study would be explained to you in detail and a consent form signed.

You are always free to stop participating at any time. A thorough medical history and physical would be done as well as blood work. You would be asked to come back to the office regularly so your response to the medication could be monitored. At the end of the study you would discuss with your doctor what further treatments you may need.

What are the benefits in participating in clinical research?

  • To be on a new and hopefully better treatment for your health condition that is not available to the general public
  • Regular monitoring of your health
  • Most studies provide compensation for your time and travel as well as the free medication and medical care while you are in the study
  • You are helping to bring new and better treatments for people who need them
