Acute Migraine

Migraine Trials in Columbus

Aventiv Research is currently participating in the RELIEF acute migraine study at our Columbus, Ohio location.  Researchers believe that migraines may be caused by a central nervous system disorder, irregularities with blood vessels in the brain, chemical abnormalities, or genetics. Clinical studies are an important step to understanding the cause and finding a solution to prevent migraines.

RELIEF Acute Migraine Clinical Trial

The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of an investigational drug for active migraine in adults. You maybe be eligible to participate in this study if you:

  • Are 18 to 75 years of age
  • Have experienced migraines for 1 year or more, starting before age 50
  • Have had migraines on 4-15 days per month in each of the last 3 months
  • Have migraines that, if left untreated:
    • Cause headache pain of moderate to severe intensity as well as symptoms such as nausea, light sensitivity, or sound sensitivity
    • Last between 4 and 72 hours

Facial Wrinkles

Facial Wrinkles Trials in Columbus

Aventiv Research is currently participating in a moderate to severe facial wrinkles study at our Dublin, Ohio location. Glabella lines (frown lines) are the short vertical lines found between the eyebrows and extending up the central forehead. They are often the first wrinkles to appear on the forehead even as early as the mid 20’s. Glabella lines make a person feel tired and angry. The effect of constantly contracting the glabella muscles contributes to headaches and central forehead heaviness. Glabella lines are particularly deep looking because the skin in the glabella is thick compared to the eyelid skin at the outer end of the eyes which is very thin and develops Lateral Canthal Lines, the finer wrinkles called crow’s feet.

Facial Wrinkles Study

The primary objective of this clinical trial is to is to assess the efficacy and safety of an investigational drug for long-term treatment of moderate to severe Glabellar Lines (frown lines) and Lateral Canthal Lines (crow’s feet). You may be eligible to participate if:

  • You are at least 18 years of age
  • You have moderate to severe face wrinkles

And

  • You have NOT used any Botulinum toxin in facial areas in the past 9 months

Moderate to Severe Asthma Study

Asthma Trials in Columbus

Aventiv Research is currently participating in a moderate to severe asthma Study at our Dublin, Ohio location. Asthma is a chronic lung disease that affects about 1 in 12 people, and that number continues to grow. The disease inflames and narrows airways, thus causing periods of chest tightness, coughing, shortness of breath, and wheezing on a recurring basis.

Moderate to Severe Asthma Study

The primary objective of this clinical trial is to evaluate the efficacy of budesonide/albuterol metered-dose inhaler compared to albuterol metered-dose inhaler administered as needed in response to symptoms. If you have been diagnosed with asthma and have frequent severe attacks and active symptoms despite using preventative medications, you may be interested in a new investigational medication for the treatment of adults with moderate to severe asthma.

You may qualify for this study if:

  • At least 4 years of age or older
  • Diagnosed with asthma
  • Taking medications for asthma
  • Having asthma exacerbations (worsening of asthma and/or increasing severity of breathing problems)

Low Testosterone

Low Testosterone Trials in Columbus

Aventiv Research is currently participating in a low testosterone study at our Columbus, Ohio location. Hypogonadism (Low-T) is characterized by a decline in testosterone and subsequently, a decline in sex drive. Low-T can be caused by many factors, including age, other health problems like diabetes, obesity, or high blood pressure, and genetic conditions. Clinical trials are a necessary part of finding treatment for Low-T.

Low Testosterone Study

The primary objective of this study is to compare the effect of testosterone replacement therapy and placebo in symptomatic hypogonadal men with increased risk for cardiovascular disease. You may be eligible to participate if:

  • You are male, and between 45 and 80 years of age
  • Have been diagnosed with or have the presence of at least one symptom of low testosterone such as:
    • decreased sex drive
    • decrease in spontaneous/morning erections
    • a significant decrease in energy

And

  • Have pre-existing cardiovascular disease

Urology

Urology Clinical Research in Columbus

Urology clinical research is a critical step toward advancing medical research. Doctors use studies to progress current treatments, as well as develop new methods for urological conditions.

Urology is the branch of medicine that deals with diseases of the urinary tract—the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. It also deals with male reproductive organs. Since health problems in these body parts can happen to everyone, urologic health is important. Common conditions include urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, low testosterone, and prostate cancer. At Aventiv, we help further treatment for some of these conditions by offering clinical trials.

Urology Studies We Offer

At Aventiv, we offer a number of urology studies. If you have any of the listed conditions, you may qualify for one of our clinical research studies. Please refer to each study’s page for detailed participant information.

Neurology

Neurology Clinical Research in Columbus

Neurology clinical research is a critical step toward advancing medical research. Doctors use studies to progress current treatments, as well as develop new methods for neurological conditions.

Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. Neurological disorders include Alzheimer’s disease, back pain, headaches and migraines, peripheral neuropathy, pinched nerves, and stroke. At Aventiv, we help further treatment for some of these conditions by offering clinical trials.

Endocrinology

Endocrinology Studies in Columbus

A key part of research, endocrinology studies help doctors determine how and why methods of treatment work. In order to develop new methods, they must be tested appropriately.

Endocrinology is the study of the endocrine system in the human body. This is a system of glands which secrete hormones. Examples include thyroid hormone, growth hormone, and insulin. The common diseases and disorders of the endocrine system that endocrinologists deal with include diabetes mellitus and thyroid disorders.

Molluscum Contagiosum

What is Molluscum Contagiosum?

Molluscum Contagiosum (MC) is an infection that causes small, firm bumps or growths on your skin. They’re usually painless, but sometimes they can be itchy, sore, or swollen.

Common Causes of Molluscum Contagiosum

MC is passed through close contact with someone who has it. Many adults get the virus from intercourse, but you can get it other ways, too. Skin-to-skin contact with a part of the body that’s infected is all it takes for molluscum contagiosum to spread. You can also get MC from touching clothes, towels, or toys. It’s possible to spread the infection to other parts of your body by touching or scratching the bumps.

Children can easily get MC from touching the molluscum bumps on someone else’s skin or sharing toys and other objects with them. For kids, the bumps usually show up on the stomach, arms, legs, or face.

How to Recognize Molluscum Contagiosum

Often the only sign of molluscum is pink or flesh-colored bumps on the skin. These bumps can appear anywhere on the skin. Most people get about 10 to 20 bumps on their skin. If a person has a weakened immune system, many bumps often appear.

How to Enroll

There is a significant unmet medical need to treat MC, considering most patients with MC are healthy young children and the disease is highly contagious. However, ablative treatment often causes fear in children and repeated ablative treatments are difficult.

If you or your child have been diagnosed with MC, you may be eligible to participate in a study or clinical trial for a new topical application for MC that doesn’t cause pain and/or scarring, and provides an effective, safe and convenient treatment option for MC.
