Why participate in a clinical research study?

Clinical studies are the fastest and safest way to find the effectiveness of vaccines 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:

Participants that qualify for the study, may receive at no cost an investigational pneumococcal vaccine or FDA approved vaccine which may help protect against Streptococcus pneumoniae that can cause illnesses like pneumonia, study related care, and compensation up to $925 for time and travel.

This study will consist of 3 to 4 clinic visits and 2 phone calls over 6 months. 

FAQs

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 Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus)?

Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus): A type of bacterium that comes in pairs and is shaped like a lancet (a surgical knife with a short wide two-edged blade). Pneumococcus is the leading cause of bacterial pneumonia and otitis media (middle ear infections) and an important contributor to bacterial meningitis.

What is Pneumococcal Pneumonia?

In severe cases, pneumococcal pneumonia can put you in the hospital.

Pneumococcal pneumonia is not a cold or the flu. It’s a potentially serious lung disease that is caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae, a common bacteria that can be spread from person to person through a cough or close contact. These bacteria can cause part of the lung to become inflamed and fill up with mucus, making it harder to breathe.

Symptoms of Pneumococcal pneumonia

Common symptoms of pneumococcal pneumonia include high fever, excessive sweating and shaking chills, coughing, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath and chest pain. Certain symptoms, such as cough and fatigue, can appear without warning and may last for weeks, or longer.

How do you get pneumococcal pneumonia?

The bacteria that cause pneumococcal pneumonia are called Streptococcus pneumoniae. These bacteria can spread from person to person through coughing or close contact. When these bacteria get into the lungs, they can cause some of the air sacs in the lungs to become inflamed and fill with mucus.
