If you have a cough that has lasted for months or longer, you know the frustration and anxiety it can cause. Coughing can interrupt your sleep, make it difficult to concentrate, and bother others around you.
While prescription and over-the-counter cough medicines help some people, many others continue to cough without relief. Many people give up and assume there’s nothing else they can do.
However, you may have options that you can explore. We are looking for volunteers to take part in clinical trials to understand chronic cough and help find new treatments.
People may not give much thought to clinical research, but everything from aspirin to chemotherapy has been carefully tested before being prescribed by your doctor.
Clinical trials need human volunteers, who participate under the supervision of a doctor and/or health professionals. As the trial goes on, the doctors gather more and more information about the drug or treatment under investigation. It is only through clinical trials that we learn if drugs and treatments are both effective and safe.
For the safety of both staff and patients, we require that our research sites are COVID-19 SMART facilities. That means they use best practices to reduce virus exposure and are dedicated to ensuring they remain open and available for the research of investigational medications.
Dedicated to conducting clinical trials, Synexus have been investigating the effectiveness of new medicines and treatments for more than 25 years. We have vast experience in conducting clinical research with over 180 sites around the world. Each has its own dedicated team of highly trained doctors and nurses to provide our patients with the highest level of comfort and professionalism.
