Migraine and Headache Clinical Trials: Springfield, Missouri Area

Teri Robert @trobert Health Guide August 16, 2010
  • Migraine and headache clinical trials help advance research and are sometimes a way to try new treatments. In addition to the monthly clinical trial updates that Nancy does, I sometimes hear directly from researchers who have new clinical trials enrolling participants. Dr. Roger Cady's research team has notified me of some new trials they're conducting. If you live in the Springfield, Missouri, area and are interested, here's the information:


    Evaluating the Effectiveness of Early Acute Treatment vs. Preventive Treatment for Migraine


    Did you know that 60-80% of migraine sufferers experience signs before a migraine attack that may actually predict the onset of a headache? These signs are referred to as prodrome and may include symptoms such as muscle aches, food cravings, mood changes, decreased or increased energy, difficulties with memory or concentration and even excessive yawning.


    If you:

    • Are age 18 or older
    • Experience prodrome symptoms as described above
    • Have never taken Frova® or Topamax® for migraine treatment or prevention
    • Live in the Springfield, Missouri, area.

    Please consider enrolling in this medical research study. Qualified candidates will receive study related medical evaluations and study medication at no charge plus compensation for time and travel. For more information, please contact call 417-883-7889.



    Have you had a mild head injury that has left you with chronic headaches?


    Clinvest is conducting a medical research study testing an approved migraine drug to see if it safely and effectively relieves post traumatic headaches.


    If you:

    • Are between the ages of 18 and 65
    • Have had a problem with headaches since the injury
    • Have trouble with concentration and memory due to the headaches
    • Live in the Springfield, Missouri, area.

    Please consider volunteering for this medical research study. No insurance is necessary because if you qualify and choose to participate you will receive all study related medical evaluations and study drug at no charge. Compensation for time and travel is also provided. For more information, please contact 883-7889.



    Help Us Learn More About the Effects of Migraine On Work Productivity


    Workers who experience migraines suffer approximately a 50% decrease in work productivity. Help us learn more about how 2 different treatments affect the way you function at work by volunteering for this medical research study.
