(HealthDay News) -- Here are the latest clinical trials, courtesy of Thomson CenterWatch:
Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
This clinical research study will evaluate an investigational combination of two study medications for high blood pressure, compared to each study medication taken alone. Candidates may qualify who are at least 18, have high blood pressure, and do not have congestive heart failure.
The research site is in Edison, NJ.
Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Volunteers are needed for a clinical research study to evaluate EpiFLOSD, an FDA-cleared transdermal sustained oxygen therapy device to treat difficult-to-heal wounds. Volunteers 20-90 who have had a diabetic foot ulcer for at least 30 days may be eligible.
The research sites are in Cleveland, Ohio, and North Miami Beach, Fla.
Healthy women ages 40 to 64 who are postmenopausal yet bothered by flushes and sweats may qualify for this trial. The study will evaluate whether the investigational drug bazedoxifene/CE is safe and is effective in preventing bone loss and protecting the uterus from endometrial hyperplasia (abnormal overgrowth of cells). The study will last one year, involving eight visits each lasting about one hour.
The research site is in Charlottesville, Va.
