If you qualify for the study, you will visit a study clinic in your area approximately xx times over xx weeks.
The T2D Studies will be evaluating the effectiveness of an investigational study drug in treating the symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes. Volunteers who qualify to take part in the study may receive compensation for time and travel expenses.
You may be eligible to take part in The T2D Studies if you:
All study-related care will be provided by a team of medical professionals.
Type 2 Diabetes is the most common form of diabetes it accounts for 90-95% of all diabetes cases and affects almost 30 million Americans. There are numerous risk factors for T2D that include lifestyle decisions, age and ethnic group.
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way your body metabolizes sugar (glucose) — an important source of fuel for your body. With type 2 diabetes, your body either resists the effects of insulin — a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells — or doesn't produce enough insulin to maintain normal glucose levels.
As obesity has become more prevalent over the past few decades, so too has the rate of type 2 diabetes. In 2013, more than 1 in 3 people in the U.S. were considered to have obesity, and over 2 in 3 were either overweight or had obesity. Although the link between obesity and diabetes is well known, the reasons for the link remain unclear.
T2D is a very serious condition, that if not properly managed, puts people at a greater risk for developing other conditions and health problems such as:
Adopting a healthy lifestyle can be an effective way to prevent Type 2 Diabetes. Losing weight, being active, and eating a healthy diet all work together to slow the progression of the condition and prevent complications if you already have a T2D diagnosis.
The T2D Studies are looking to see if an investigational treatment helps to treat the symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes.
A Clinical research study, or a clinical trial, is a medical study that helps to answer important questions about an investigational drug or device. For example, is the drug or device effective? How does it compare with other drugs or devices?
All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved by regulatory authorities for doctors to prescribe to patients. Without people taking part in these studies, we would have no new treatments. The volunteers who participate in clinical research studies play a major role in helping to advance medicine.
Your participation in this study will last about xx weeks. The study will include xx visits to a study clinic in your area and follow up phone calls at designated times.
All study-related care is provided at no cost to you. You do not need health insurance to participate.
Volunteers who take part in the study may receive compensation for their time and travel.
Participation is entirely voluntary. Even if you decide to take part in this study, you can change your mind about participating at any time.
There is no cost to participate in the T2D Studies. If you qualify, the investigational drug, study-related tests, assessments, and visits will be provided to you at no cost. You will receive study-related care throughout the study from a team of professional doctors and nurses.
Volunteers who take part in the studies may be compensated for their time and travel. Please discuss this with the study team when they contact you.
What happens if I Sign Up? If you sign up, we will match you to a study clinic in your area that is seeking participants or notify you if one becomes available. They will contact you to explain more about the study before you make your decision about participating. You will attend an in-person visit where the study team will help determine if you qualify and if the study is right for you.
