(HealthDay News) -- Here are the latest clinical trials, courtesy of CenterWatch:
The goal of this research is to assess the reliability of a test that might be useful in the early diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, and in identifying people who might be at risk to develop Parkinson's in the future. To be eligible, you must be a first-degree relation to a person with Parkinson's, not diagnosed with Parkinson's or another neuro-degenerative disorder yourself, and you must be at least 50 years old or within 10 years of the age of onset of your relative's symptoms. Research sites located throughout the U.S.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (Enlarged Prostate)
Urgent/frequent urination, especially during the night, interrupted stream/flow, feeling that you need to strain or push to urinate, and feeling that your bladder does not completely empty are symptoms of an enlarged prostate, or BPH. This study is of an investigational medication for BPH in men age 50 or older. If you qualify, you will receive all study-related care and study medication. Research site located in Staten Island, NY.
Crohn's Disease (Pediatric)
If your child has active Crohn's disease and is between 5-17 years of age he may be eligible to participate in a clinical study for pediatric Crohn's patients to evaluate the safety of an investigational medication that is currently FDA-approved for adults. Registered nurses and pharmacists are available to answer your questions and to help determine if your child is eligible for the study. Research site located in Omaha, Neb.
