What to expect

We are conducting a clinical research study for a healthy volunteer vaccine for the Nipa virus.  Currently there is no commercially available vaccine.

The study consists of a screening visit, 2 dosing visits, 9 in person follow-up visits, and a Tele-Visit. Participation may last up to 8 months.

Participants receive no cost investigational vaccine, study related care, and will be compensation up to $3,000 for time and travel associated with the study.

Why participate in a clinical research study?
Clinical studies are what allow all medications and vaccines to come to market, including drugs that treat pain, infections, and various medical conditions. Without clinical studies, no medications would be available for use and they are only possible with the help of participants like you. Compensation varies by study and 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.

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 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.

In clinical trials, Phase I requires the testing of the investigational drug on healthy volunteers to assist those at JBR Clinical Research in determining the most effective route to administer the drug.

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.

Clinical Trial Compensation

As medical research continues to bring new medication and treatments that help make all our lives better, healthy volunteers can experience the satisfaction of participating and assisting in the development these drugs. JBR Clinical Research compensates you for your time, travel and participation in the study. Compensation is based on the length of the study, the number of overnight stays in our clinic, and the number of outpatient visits you attend.

What is Nipah Virus

Nipah virus (NiV) was first discovered in 1999 following an outbreak of disease. t is a zoonotic virus, meaning that it initially spreads between animals and people. Infected animals can spread the disease to people or other animals. People can become infected if they have close contact with an infected animal or its body fluids (such as saliva or urine)—this initial spread from an animal to a person is known as a spillover event. Once it spreads to people, person-to-person spread of NiV can also occur.

Symptoms of the Nipah Virus (NiV)

Infection with Nipah virus (NiV) can cause mild to severe disease.

Symptoms typically appear in 4-14 days following exposure to the virus. The illness initially presents as 3-14 days of fever and headache, and often includes signs of respiratory illness, such as cough, sore throat, and difficulty breathing. In severe cases a phase of brain swelling (encephalitis) may follow, where symptoms can include drowsiness, disorientation, and mental confusion, which can rapidly progress to coma within 24-48 hours.
