Participate In A Study


Interested in advancing the study, biology, and treatment of HEAD LICE?

You may also join our list to participate in future Clinical Research Studies. Call 305-387- 0051 for information.

What is a clinical study?

A clinical study is a careful plan that involves people like you receiving product treatment under the close supervision of research professionals. Participants may use the test product once or several times while expert evaluators determine how well the medical product performs and how it reacts with the participant’s body, sometimes what kind of feelings you have about the product.

How can I take part in a study?

You must first qualify for a study in order to participate. All of our studies have specific entrance criteria. This criteria varies from study to study. To take part in a study, Call 305-387-0051. Once you are screened over the phone and pre-qualify, you will be given an appointment time. At the time of enrollment you must meet the following criteria to complete the enrollment process:

  1. You must sign an informed consent at your first study visit.
  2. You must meet eligibility standards on the first day of the study including basic enrollment criteria and be in good health established by medical history and, in some cases, physical and labs.
  3. You must agree to follow all study instructions and commit to all study visits.

Why do pharmaceutical companies test products?

Pharmaceuticals companies test products at (SFFHRC) for a variety of reasons. Primarily, companies place studies with us in order to test the safety and efficacy of their products or to support claims that they wish to make about their products. Safety tests determine whether a product causes significant or unexpected reactions with study participants and efficacy test determines how well their product performed.

What if I don’t qualify for a study or I drop/quit during a study?

You are free to drop/ quit from a study for any reason at any time. Since we cannot use incomplete data, we ask that you contemplate the study prior to enrolling to ensure that you can commit to the study and attend all study visits.

What if I don’t show up for my first study visit?

If you do not show up for a study or provide insufficient notice, it will be noted in your file and you may lose the privilege of participating in future studies. The viability of our studies depend upon the commitment of our participants. We ask that you call the research site at least 48 hours in advance if you are unable to make your appointments.

Becoming involved in clinical studies is critical to the development of successful treatments. Your small investment of time may mean a world of difference to treatments and prevention. The reward is the knowledge that you made a direct contribution to advancing in biology and medical treatment.
