FAU’s Clinical Research Group in Need of Volunteers for Generalized Anxiety Disorder Study
BOCA RATON, FL (July 11, 2008) – Florida Atlantic University’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Biomedical Science’s Clinical Research Group is currently conducting a study to determine if an investigational medication can be used to effectively treat Generalized Anxiety Disorder.
The study, led by Dr. Peter Holland, will last up to 12 weeks, and will consist of comprehensive medical evaluations including physical exams, laboratory tests and electrocardiograms, a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and close safety monitoring.
The department is looking for participants to take part in the study. Volunteers must be between the ages of 18 and 65, and meet the criteria for diagnosis of Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Symptoms include anxiety, restlessness or feeling on edge, being easily fatigued, difficulty concentrating and forgetfulness, irritability, muscle tension and sleep disturbance.
There is no cost for any procedures or study medication, and those chosen will be reimbursed $45 per visit for transportation expenses.
