Fibromyalgia Treatment Study at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA)
Community Member August 26, 2008
We are looking for women/men with fibromyalgia to participate in a new research study. For approximately six months, participants may receive a new medication for Fibromyalgia while having their health regularly monitored. Carrying out a research study with a large group of participants is the best way to look at the medication's effect. This study is designed to examine the safety and effectiveness of a medication in comparison to an inactive placebo in the treatment of Fibromyalgia.
In earlier studies, the study medication showed promise in pain reduction and improvement on health and functioning. This study will help to determine if the study medication improves symptoms associated with Fibromyalgia. Symtoms of fibromalgia such as pain, fatigue, and mood will also be assessed.
You may be elible to take part if you are a woman/man 18 years or more of age and have experienced symptoms such as widespread muscle/joint pain, stiffness, fatigue,, sleeplessness, and difficulty with daily tasks.
You will have study related health checks if you participate in the Fibromyalgia study including: physical, blood work, study medication. You will be asked questions about your health. You will also be monitored for any side effects that may result from the study medication. If you think you may be interested in taking part in this study, you should call: 310/825-0797 or 310/825-3351.
