      Cardiovascular Disease Risk Research

      Is your LDL cholesterol between 70 and 190? If so, you may be at risk for major cardiovascular events even if you are not experiencing heart symptoms. Preventing a heart attack and stroke is the best line of defense. Cardiovascular disease can cause major cardiovascular events including heart attack, stroke, and cardiovascular death. Research on new medications is needed to help prevent major cardiovascular events.

      We are conducting a research study for volunteers that will evaluate an investigational preventative medication for patients with an increased risk of Cardiovascular Disease.

      You may be eligible if you:

      • Are 40-79 years old
      • Have LDL cholesterol levels between 70 and 190 mg/dL
      • Have NOT had a major cardiovascular event such as heart attack or stroke
      • Are at an increased risk of a first major cardiovascular event, defined by one or more of the following:
        • Coronary artery disease (CAD)
        • High coronary artery calcium (CAC) score
        • Elevated Lipoprotein (a) or hsCRP
        • South Asian Ancestry
        • A family member with cardiovascular disease
        • Pregnancy complications (preeclampsia, gestational hypertension, or gestational diabetes)
        • Metabolic syndrome
        • Chronic Inflammatory disorders including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus (SLE), psoriasis (>10% of the body), Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, or HIV/AIDS

      There are additional criteria to meet to qualify for this study. Volunteers who qualify for our study will receive study-related medication and medical exams at no cost, along with a stipend for time and travel. No health insurance is required to participate.

        St. Augustine Study (ILLUMINATE)

        Celiac Gluten

        Celiac Disease

        Celiac disease is a genetic autoimmune disease that affects the digestive system. It is triggered when a person consumes gluten, which is a protein found in rye, wheat, and barley. When a person with celiac disease eats gluten, their immune system reacts to the protein by attacking the small intestine. Despite attempts to maintain a gluten-free diet, many individuals with celiac disease continue to have symptoms and/or intestinal damage due to gluten exposure. Clinical research is necessary to develop potential new therapies.

        We are seeking volunteers for a research study to evaluate the effectiveness, safety, and tolerability of a new investigational medication for individuals with celiac disease who are on a gluten-free diet.

        You may be eligible if you:

        • Are 12 to 75 years old
        • Have celiac disease (confirmed by a biopsy or blood test)
        • Have been attempting to maintain a gluten free diet for at least 12 months

        April 28, 2020

        Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic, immune-mediated disorder. EoE symptoms can overlap with symptoms of a condition called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

        Patients with EoE experience symptoms described as:

        • feeling like food or liquid is moving slowly
        • feeling food or liquid going down
        • food getting stuck in the esophagus
        • acid reflux, chest pain, nausea, vomiting
        • failure to thrive (children), regurgitation and esophageal strictures.

        It occurs in approximately 1 in 10,000 people and affects people of all age groups, with males being affected more frequently. EOE is associated with food allergies or other allergens, causing eosinophils (type of white blood cell) to migrate from the bone marrow (via blood) and settle in the esophagus causing inflammation to the esophagus. No one knows exactly why EoE occurs.  People with EoE tend to have allergic conditions such asthma, seasonal allergies, allergic rhinitis, and eczema.

        If you are interested in a research study for Eosinophilic Esophagitis, sign up below!

        Qualified volunteers may receive at no cost:

        • Jacksonville Borland Groover Study (CROSSING)
        Jacksonville Borland Groover Study (CROSSING)

        We are conducting a new clinical trial for people with Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE). The clinical trial is investigating tezepelumab – an investigational antibody drug. Tezepelumab has a new and unique action in the body. It stops a chemical produced in the body called thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP). TSLP is increased in some people with EoE and causes inflammation. By blocking TSLP, researchers believe that tezepelumab will reduce inflammation in the esophagus and improve swallowing symptoms for patients with EoE.

        You may be eligible to participate if you:

        • Are 12 – 80 years old
        • Have a diagnosis of EoE confirmed by an upper endoscopy (EGD) and esophageal biopsy
        • Weigh at least 40 kg (88.2 lbs.)
        • Have an average of at least 2 episodes of swallowing difficulties (dysphagia) per week.

        There are additional criteria to meet to qualify for this study. Volunteers who qualify for our study will receive study-related medication and study-related medical exams at no cost and a stipend for time and travel. No health insurance is required to participate.

        • Inverness Study (CLEG)
        Inverness Study (CLEG)

        We are conducting a clinical trial for people who have active EoE.

        This study will evaluate an investigational drug in adults with EoE to see how it reacts with a group of enzymes in the body called CYP (also known as cytochrome P450) that break down drugs.

        The drug-drug interaction study will examine if there are any changes in CYP activity when the study drug and 5 selected approved drugs are given together. The study drug is a biologic agent, called a monoclonal antibody, and will be administered once a week for 17 weeks during the study.

        This study will also evaluate whether the study drug helps the symptoms of EoE, such as trouble swallowing.

        You may be eligible to participate if you:

        • Are 18 – 75 years old
        • Weigh at least 40 kg (88.2 lbs.)
        • Have a diagnosis of eosinophilic esophagitis and active symptoms
        • Are willing and able to receive weekly injections
        • Used or are using proton-pump inhibitor medications but still have symptoms (these are medications used for EoE, heartburn, or indigestion, such as omeprazole [Prilosec], lansoprazole [Prevacid], esomeprazole [Nexium])

        Volunteers must be able to complete some overnight stays at our clinic for this study. There are additional criteria to meet to qualify for this study. Volunteers who qualify for our study will receive study-related medication and study-related medical exams at no cost. Study participants receive payment for each study visit they attend to reimburse for their time.  No health insurance is required to participate.
