High Blood Pressure

Study Name: High Blood Pressure

Clinics: Manchester EPU

Therapy Area: Hypertension

Gender and Age: Males & Females Aged 18 - 65

Description: 

MAC Clinical Research is currently conducting a clinical trial to evaluate an investigational drug for hypertension (high blood pressure). Untreated hypertension can increase the risk of several other health problems, including heart attack, so it is important to treat high blood pressure. While several treatments already exist, many patients are not adequately controlled on these medications and research to discover better treatments is needed.

 

This trial will test the safety and efficacy of the investigational study drug compared to placebo (inactive pill) on patients with high blood pressure. The study medication or placebo will be given to you once and will be given as 1 injection with a thin needle under the skin of either your abdomen, upper arm or thigh.

There will be 11 visits to the clinic and 2 overnight stays over a period of up to 20 weeks. There is no certainty that you will receive any medical benefit from taking part in this study.

Reimbursement: £2150
