What to expect

If this study may be a fit for you, you’ll be invited to a screening visit at our facility in New Haven, CT.

If you qualify and choose to participate, you may receive doses of the study drug or placebo (no active medicine) up to 3 times daily. These will be given orally as a liquid or tablet, either alone or combined with another drug to increase the effect of the study drug. You will stay at the PCRU until 2 days after the last dose.

During your participation, there may be different procedures to assess safety and how the study drug is absorbed. These will be clearly explained to you during screening. Throughout the study, staff will closely monitor your health status and collect data, such as the levels of the study drug in your blood.

Additionally, for Japanese volunteers this study offers:

  • Japanese staff and language support
  • Japanese food
  • Japanese comic books, games, movies, etc.
  • Transportation reimbursement (conditions apply)
Required overnight stays
12 consecutive overnights
A participant may be required to stay overnight at the PCRU for observation and study procedures. The number and length of overnight stays is determined by the design of the study.  
Long-term follow up
1 follow-up call, about 4 weeks after the last dose
Some studies require the study team to stay in contact with the participant for a period of time after the participant completes the main part of the study. This long-term follow up is to collect additional information on the study drug over time.
How long is this study?
About 46 days
This does not include the time between screening and dosing, which can be up to 28 days. Participants will be in this study for about 46 days between the first dose and final follow-up call.
Up to $4,475 upon completion of the study
Participants in clinical trials at the PCRU receive financial compensation for their participation. The amount depends on factors like length of the stay, total number of study visits, and the nature of the study procedures.
