Healthy Volunteers needed for a hand numbness/ carpal tunnel repair for an anesthesia study

JBR Clinical Research is looking for volunteers 18-65 undergoing an elective surgery.

Why participate in a clinical research study?

Clinical studies are the fastest and safest way to find the effectiveness of pain medications that work and are only possible with the help of participants like you. Compensation varies by study, time involved, and whether you complete all visits and procedures in the study. Every volunteer study at JBR Clinical Research is approved and monitored by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to make sure the risks are as low as possible and are worth any potential benefits to the volunteer.

What to expect:

JBR Clinical Research is conducting a research study for muscle relaxing agent in adult participants undergoing carpal tunnel/hand numbness repair

Your participation in this study will last up to 57 days and will require 3 clinic visits including screening, an inpatient surgery stay (duration will be dependent upon your surgical procedure), and one outpatient follow-up visit, as well as 2 follow-up phone calls

Qualified participants receive study related care at no cost, private room during their stay, complimentary meals, around the clock nursing care, and compensation up to xxx for time and travel associated with the study


Why does JBR need Healthy Volunteers?

Volunteers are an integral part of the research process. People with a particular disease, as well as healthy people, both can play a role in contributing to medical advances. Medical researchers can be provided valuable information when comparing healthy volunteers with those who have specific illnesses.

Medical research continues to bring new medication and treatments to help make all our lives better. The FDA requires clinical research, trials, or medical studies, to test the safety and efficacy of these new drugs. JBR Clinical Research is a national leader in conducting these clinical research studies.

The main objective during a clinical trial on healthy volunteers is safety. Medical researchers need to determine how a certain drug is metabolized by the body. Drugs can be administered by a variety of routes, depending on the intended site of action, drug metabolism, chemical properties of the medication and ease of use.

Clinical trials are typically divided into four phases.  The earliest clinical trials, referred to as Phase I clinical trials, typically require the testing of the investigational drug on healthy volunteers, to assist those at JBR Clinical Research in determining baseline safety.

JBR Clinical Research needs healthy volunteers to participate in a variety of Utah clinical trials, such as H1N1 and other flu vaccines, wisdom teeth extraction pain management, women’s ailments, bunion treatment studies, type II diabetes and more.

Without volunteers, clinical studies simply would not be possible.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome/ Hand Numbness?

Carpal Tunnel is numbness and tingling in the hand and arm caused by a pinched nerve in the wrist.

Hand numbness can be caused by damage, irritation, or compression of one of the nerves or a branch of one of the nerves in your arm and wrist.
