Have a child that is dealing with persistent painful migraines but can’t get access to treatment? Then participating in a clinical trial might be the right decision to make.
Lynn Health Science Institute (LHSI) is on the lookout for children and adolescents to take part in a paid investigational trial located in Tulsa, Oklahoma to study the effects of a treatment drug called rimegepant. This migraine treatment has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for adults and Biohaven Pharmaceuticals is looking to approve its use for children.
So, what exactly are clinical trials and how can you and your child benefit?
Let’s start with the basics. Clinical trials are essentially research studies where volunteers take part in helping provide new treatments and improve patient quality of life. However, your benefits aren’t limited to treatment access alone. Let’s take a full look at the benefits you can enjoy by volunteering for a LHSI clinical trial.
Compensation for Time and Travel
You’ll never have to pay a single cent for any travel-related expenses on your way to the location in Tulsa. In addition, you’ll be compensated for your time at every visit. This trial consists of four clinic visits where you’ll be paid $50 per visit.
Early Access to New Treatments
Clinical trials offer you the opportunity to experience advanced treatments before they become available to the public. Because approval processes usually take months and years on end, trials are an incredibly valuable opportunity to address a chronic health condition early on.
Study Exams and Medication at No Cost
If you don’t have health insurance or want to save medical costs, then participating in clinical trials is the right way to go. Any study exams and medications will be provided to you completely free of charge.
Obtain Expert Medical Care
Because you’ll help contribute to important medical research, you’ll be taken care of by the best experts in medical care at leading health care facilities.
Biohaven Pediatric Migraine Clinical Trial
Now that you’re more familiar with the benefits of participating in clinical trials, let’s take a look at your child’s eligibility to obtain access to migraine treatment.
You may be eligible to participate if you:
- If your child is at least 6-18 years of age with your parental consent.
- If your child has a history of migraines.
Migraines are headaches that can cause severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on one side of the head. It’s often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound.
