Current Clinical Trials

Currently we are conducting the following Clinical Trials:

  1. Idiopathic Hypersomnia Clinical Trial: Patients ages 18-55, with Idiopathic Hypersomnia. This study is looking at the effect of a new medicine on sleepiness in patients with Idiopathic Hypersomnia who have access to their previous test results confirming Idiopathic Hypersomnia. It lasts 10 weeks, with up to five 24 hour stays with us as well as two other visits. We pay up to $2000 for the subject’s time and expenses.
  2. Adult Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Clinical Trial: Patients ages 18-55, with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. This study is looking at the effect of a new medicine (a new version of amphetamine) on attention deficit in adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It lasts 8 weeks, with 7 office visits.

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