Special clinical studies designed to bring medical advancements and opportunities to women in Central Ohio. From contraceptives to menopausal treatment alternatives, we have a variety of studies open and available to you.
Below are listed the current studies we are conducting. If you are interested in finding out more or taking part in one of these clinical trials, use the contact form or call us.
Breast density is ONLY detectable on mammogram. Dense breast tissue occurs in breasts that have more connective tissue than fatty tissue. Breast density appears white on mammograms.
Because breast cancers also appear white on mammograms, having more breast density can obscure the appearance of any cancers. In addition, the presence of more breast density is actually linked to an increased risk of developing breast cancer.
Density seen on mammograms is graded by the radiologist on a scale of A to D. Doctors are now required in 36 states, including Ohio, to notify patients when density is seen.
If breasts appear significantly dense on mammogram, extra testing can be done such as 3D mammogram, ultrasound, or MRIs.
Hypoactive sexual desire disorder is a sexual dysfunction in which individuals either have low or non-existent sexual desire. This condition can be acquired or be lifelong.
If you suffer from hypoactive sexual desire disorder or inhibited sexual desire, you may qualify for a clinical trial. Many experimental medications are being tested now that may boost sexual desire in women. By participating in a clinical trial, you gain access to medication before it is generally available.
Aventiv Research is currently researching a hyposexual desire disorder medication. If you qualify, you will receive all the necessary examinations, lab work and medication at no cost. You may also be compensated for your time and travel.
Are you interested in a research study of a new investigational birth control patch? If you are:
Then you may be eligible to join the SECURE Study-a clinical study of a new birth control patch.
We are recruiting women to join a large clinical research study of a contraceptive patch. The patch contains the same type of hormones that are in many birth control pills. The patch is designed to be flexible and and is applied onto the skin, just once a week.
To join the study you must:
Not everyone who wants to join will be able to. Several joining criteria must also be met. It is your choice whether to join, and even if you do join, you can leave the study at any time.
Contraceptive patches and all study check-ups will be provided at no cost to you.
If you are a woman between the ages of 40 and 65, and are suffering from hot flashes and sweating due to menopause, you are invited to see if you may qualify for the REPLENISH Trial. The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication for menopause associated hot flashes and sweating.
Each individual will be evaluated to determine her eligibility to participate in this study. If you qualify, you will receive investigational medication, study-related exams, and laboratory services at no charge. You may also be reimbursed for time and travel and other expenses.
In order to participate in the trial, women must be evaluated by a trial doctor and meet certain requirements including:
You may be eligible to participate in a clinical trial testing an investigational vaginal treatment for vaginal atrophy in women surgically or naturally in menopause.
Qualified participants must: be a healthy postmenopausal woman between the ages of 30 and 75, bothered by one of the following symptoms: vaginal dryness, vaginal or vulvar irritation or itching, or pain associated with sexual activity, and not currently on hormone therapy.
Participants may receive: study related exams, study-related medication, compensation for time and travel
Do you have an overactive bladder? If so, you could be eligible to participate in our clinical trial on the condition.
Qualified participants must: Be a woman over the age of 18, who suffers from overactive bladder (OAB). This condition causes you to experience a sudden urge to urinate that you cannot control, and sometimes even causes leaking urine. Another symptom of OAB is the need to go to the bathroom many times during both day and night.
Participants may receive: study-related exams, medication, and/or physical therapy, and compensation for time and travel.
Low Libido, aka Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder is a sexual disorder resulting in low or non-existent sex drives. It is a multi-faceted disorder that can be caused by physical or mental issues or a combination of both. Factors such as low testosterone, other medical problems such as depression or other medications you may be on can contribute.
If you suffer from low libido or HSDD, you may qualify for a clinical trial. There are a number of ongoing clinical trials for medications that help combat low libido in women. Participating in clinical trials provides access to medicine that is not generally available yet. Aventiv is currently working on a medication for women experiencing low libido. If you believe you qualify for a trial, contact us today to get involved.
Osteoporosis is a bone disorder that results in weak bone structure, primarily in women. It is primarily caused by your body not being able to replenish the cells in your bones as fast as you lose them. According to the Mayo Clinic, 80% of the 10 million sufferers of Osteoporosis in the United States are women.
Osteoporosis is also often linked to diminished hormones in women, particularly those who suffer from low libido due to lowered sex hormones. Men and women are also more likely to get osteoporosis if they don’t get much calcium. There are many medicines in development and trials for Osteoporosis. If you have Osteoporosis and believe you would qualify for clinical trials, contact us today at Aventiv Research.
Endometriosis is a painful condition that affects about 6% of women. It is caused by the presence of endometrial cells which are supposed to be in the uterus appearing in other parts of the body such as in the abdomen around the bladder or intestines. Endometrial cells respond to the menstrual cycle regardless of their location in the body which causes great pain when the cells react outside of the uterus. The presence of these cells and their reaction to the hormone cycle can cause scar tissue to form which causes even more pain.
Endometriosis is usually treated with surgery to remove the cells from areas outside the uterus. The alternative method is to suppress the hormone cycle with birth control medicines that greatly reduce or prevent periods. There are many new drugs in development to treat Endometriosis. If you have been diagnosed with Endometriosis and want to participate in a clinical trial, contact us today at Aventiv Research.
This is a great way to make extra money and be involved in a research study that will help and benefit many people to come. I’ve really enjoyed myself with the program and with the staff.
"Thank you for your courtesy and kindness. I felt confident and comfortable. I would recommend the research study here. My coordinator was awesome and very caring."
Any stigma or hesitation about clinical research should be disregarded. A good learning program for research studies.
It's a good way to find out if there's some new drugs that can help people that have problems like mine and the people here are just wonderful to work with.
