Doctors around the world are working hard to try and find new ways to treat Lupus Nephritis (LN) and they need help. You see, study participants are at the heart of any study. Without them, clinical research studies simply would not be possible. And without clinical research studies, no new LN drugs can be developed.
The Paisley LN study want to see how safe and effective a study drug is at reducing the symptoms of moderate to severe LN. We are looking for adults 18-75 years of age with a diagnosis of moderate-to-severe LN. The Paisley LN study is looking for approximately 100 participants.
The Paisley LN Study lasts about 73 weeks (or about 18 months). If you are eligible and are referred to the study clinic, the study team can provide you with more information about the study visits that are required.
You won’t be asked for any personal information until after you have completed the questionnaire and decided to proceed. Your information will only be used for the purposes of this study.
Why do people take part in clinical studies?
People take part in clinical trials for a variety of reasons that are unique to them. Some people may decide to take part because they want to help researchers understand a disease better, or find potential new treatments for people in the future. Sometimes enrolling in a clinical trial gives people access to an investigational drug – something that may be of interest when all approved treatment options have been exhausted.More FAQs
Are clinical trials safe?
The safety of participants is the number one priority in any clinical trial. While no one can guarantee that an investigational drug won’t cause any side effects, the health of every participant is monitored closely by the trial team to ensure that any side effects that do arise are managed effectively.More FAQs
How might my loved one be affected by participating in a clinical trial?
Clinical trials often involve additional doctor visits, and these may impact your loved one’s daily routine. Some participants may also experience discomfort from trial procedures or side effects from the investigational drug.More FAQs
My loved one is participating in a clinical trial. How can I support them?
There are lots of ways to support a loved one as they take part in a clinical trial. Transporting your loved one to their clinic visits or reminding them of things they need to bring with them may help them manage their stress. You could even take notes of symptoms they experience on their behalf, as these are often helpful to researchers. And of course, supporting your loved one by simply being present, listening and offering encouragement is also really valuable.More FAQs
