  • We are looking for volunteers to take part in clinical trials to better understand the condition and help find new treatments.
  • Eligible participants will receive a free health check and all study care will be provided at no cost to yourself.

Everything you need to know

As one of the largest and most recognised clinical trial organisations in the world, Synexus provides a friendly relaxed environment where you have the opportunity to help others and maybe also yourself. A clinical trial offers an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.

Several factors can enhance your risk of heart disease, such as high cholesterol, diabetes, poor diet, inactivity, smoking, being overweight, alcohol, stress or a family history of cardiac disease. Elevated low-density lipoprotein associated cholesterol (LDL-C) is a major risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease. Lowering LDL-C has been shown to reduce the risk of death or heart attack.

If you or someone you know meets any of the following criteria, we invite you to find out more about becoming a clinical trial volunteer.
