We are currently recruiting volunteers to join the following research study programs ...
Heart Disease / Coronary Artery Disease / Congestive Heart Failure
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Canada. Heart disease can cause further complications and strain on the heart, leading to Congestive Heart Failure, when the heart can no longer pump blood efficiently. We have multiple programs examining the benefits of treatments for the prevention of heart attack and stroke and the treatment of congestive heart failure.
Diabetes is a disease that sneaks up on many patients with complications that may have been prevented with earlier blood sugar control. As such, we have multiple programs examining the benefit of existing and novel treatment medicines and techniques to improve care for diabetic patients.
High cholesterol is recognized as a major contributing factor to the development of atherosclerosis, plaque in the arteries, which can lead to heart attacks, strokes, and peripheral arterial disease. We have numerous programs examining the benefit of new treatments for elevated cholesterol.
Lower BACK PAIN
Lower back pain is one of the most common reasons people visit a doctor. We have a new investigational treatment option examining alternative methods for treating chronic lower back pain.
More than 20 million people around the world suffer from an overactive bladder (OAB). Because different age groups respond in different ways to medications, it is important to find out what medications work best for who and why. Our program looks at how a medication approved to treat OAB symptoms affects people 65 years of age or older.
Migraine is a recurrent headache disorder, marked by moderate to severe pain and a variety of symptoms that vary by individual. This research study examines the safety and efficacy of a novel treatment for individuals suffering from Migraines.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
COPD is a progressive inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow and difficulty breathing. We have numerous programs examining treatments for individuals suffering from COPD.
