Why participate in this clinical research study?

Clinical studies are what allow all medications to come to market, including drugs that treat pain, infections, and various medical conditions. Without clinical studies, no new medications would be made available for use and they 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:

We are conducting a study to determine if an epidural injection in the spine reduces neuropathic pain from Lumbosacral Radiculopathy or “Sciatica” (pain that radiates down the legs from the lower back). Patients that qualify for the study will have one screening visit, a 4-day inpatient stay, and 7 to 9 outpatient visits depending on which group you are in. Participants that qualify for the study may receive no cost investigational injection to help treat pain that is tested against a placebo, study related care, and compensation up to $1,575 for their time and travel.

FAQs:

What is Lumbosacral Radiculopathy?

Lumbosacral radiculopathy is a condition in which a disease process affects the function of one or more lumbosacral nerve roots. The most common cause is disc herniation or degenerative spinal stenosis leading to root compression. This can manifest as pain, numbness, or weakness of the buttock and leg. This causes pain in the leg rather than in the lumbar spine.

What causes Lumbosacral Radiculopathy?

There are many potential causes of radiculopathy, including poor lifting technique, poor posture, and back injuries. Radiculopathy can be caused by a variety of conditions or injuries, including: a herniated disc, when a disc protrudes, compressing the nerve root.

What is the difference between sciatica and lumbosacral radiculopathy?

Radiculopathy refers to nerve irritation caused by damage to the disc between the vertebrae. When nerves are irritated in the low back from degenerative disc disease, the condition is called lumbar radiculopathy, and it often causes the commonly recognized “sciatica” pain that shoots down a lower extremity.
