Research Studies and Clinical Trials

direct link to form-

New treatment strategies for immune modulation and antiviral
strategies have been successfully developed for chronic inflammatory
disease over the last decade. Each of these drugs has had to undergo
extensive investigation before obtaining approval for general use.

A critical need is sub grouping the spectrum of neuro-immune disease
in order to stratify patients according to the appropriate therapy.
The current translational and clinical research studies at WPI have
clinical trials as endpoints. While WPI currently has no open clinical
trials, when trials are initiated they will offer patients the
opportunity to participate in clinical trials that are designed to
test the effectiveness of new forms of therapy. Clinical trials are
voluntary, and our team will only involve patients who are entirely
comfortable with the process.

Another critical need is a comprehensive database of patients with
information on your diagnosis, conditions, family health and similar
items. You can help by completing the research questionnaire and
including your information for our researchers to study.

All clinical trials conducted here at WPI are approved and closely
monitored by the University of Nevada's Institutional Review Board
(IRB). No WPI staff have any financial interests or holdings in the
various pharmaceutical companies who produce drugs used to treat
chronic diseases.

If you would like to be considered for participation in current or
upcoming clinical trials, and include your information in our research
database, please complete this research questionnaire-
