Current Clinical Trials

Currently we are conducting the following Clinical Trial(s):

    1. Narcolepsy or Idiopathic Hypersomnia Clinical Trial: Patients ages 18-75, with Narcolepsy or Idiopathic Hypersomnia (IH). This study is looking at the effect of a medicine known to improve sleepiness in patients with Narcolepsy or IH who have access to their previous test results confirming the Narcolepsy or IH. The study lasts about 15 weeks, with up to 6 office visits, 2-3 overnight stays, and 8 telephone calls. This is an open label study, so patients get active medicine for sure. Patients may stay on previous medicines for Narcolepsy or IH if they are still excessively sleepy on them. We pay up to $3000-4000 for the subject’s time and expenses upon completing the study.
    2. Obstructive Sleep Apnea Clinical Trial with Medicine: Patients age 18 or older, with diagnosed Obstructive Sleep Apnea and tiredness/ fatigue. Patients must not be able or willing to use CPAP and must not have used CPAP in the past three months. They must have normal blood pressure or blood pressure well controlled with medicine(s). The study lasts a year and involves 9 visits (including 4 overnight visits with sleep testing) and a few telephone calls. We pay up to $1750 for the subject’s time and expenses.

Clinical trials come and go, and they fill up fast.
