Smoking Cessation Clinical Trials
Today, there are a number of options available for combating nicotine addiction. However, an important aspect of quitting is educating patients about the benefits of smoking cessation and the cessation process. During these smoking cessations, participants will be informed of the expected withdrawal symptoms. New smoking cessations make effective use of counseling, NRT, antidepressant medications, behavioral training, group therapy, and even hypnosis. The success of these studies are based on the levels of cotinine or carbon monoxide levels measured in the participants.
In many cases patients who could benefit from investigational treatment often miss out on smoking cessation research studies because their doctor isn’t aware of a study in the area. In addition, there are some cases where patients feel they are going through so much they don’t need to be treated like a ‘guinea pig,’ and nothing could be further from the truth.
The smoking cessation clinical trials taking place in Alabama are testing new treatment methods, which are being developed by pharmaceutical and biotechnical companies, and they are designed specifically to test the safety and efficacy of treatments for humans. By volunteering for our fully supervised smoking cessation clinical study, you may receive new investigational smoking cessation treatments that may help us all understand your condition.
The type of study being performed by Achieve Clinical Research directly reflects your involvement. Sometimes, participating in a smoking cessation clinical trial in Alabama is as simple as agreeing to let our researchers have a copy of your test results, but most are more involved and would require some tests and a visit to our clinic. Participants are compensated for time and travel, and the study related care, including physical examinations, laboratory services and study medicines are all provided.
Current Smoking Cessation Clinical Trials
Achieve Clinical Research is currently conducting a wide array of clinical studies targeted towards certain conditions. You may be eligible to participate in one of our Alabama clinical trials and contribute to the development and approval of a new drug or treatment. As a participant, there is no cost to you at any point during the study and health insurance is not required. Browse our clinical trials being conducted now to find the study best suited for you.
