The flu, or influenza, is a very common respiratory illness that is highly contagious. The flu is caused by the type A or B influenza virus. The virus can spread through the upper and lower respiratory tract of the body causing fever, aches, and other symptoms. Influenza tends to occur most commonly during the spring and winter.

Do I Qualify for a Influenza Clinical Trial in Birmingham?

Qualification criteria can differ depending on the study being conducted.. For each individual influenza study conducted, there are unique qualification factors that must be met. Having a clinical diagnosis of influenza is not the only qualifying factor involved. This can be restricting, but it is an essential part of conducting research studies. Please call us at (205) 757-8208 with any questions you may have.

Here are some general qualification criteria to keep in mind:

  • You’ll need to have a clinically confirmed diagnosis of influenza in order to qualify for one of our clinical trials.
  • A history of substance or alcohol abuse within the last 5 years can make you ineligible to participate.
  • Volunteers who don’t have health insurance can still qualify to participate for one of our influenza clinical trials.
  • Applicants must be willing to comply with study-related procedures and clinic visits during a study

Please note that each clinical trial participant reserves the right to drop out of their research study at any time. If you want to learn more, then please click here to read about the rights and protections granted to any person participating in a study.
