      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.

      Inverness Study #1 (Pursuit)

      High LDL Cholesterol Research 

      Dyslipidemia is one of the major risks for the leading cause of mortality worldwide, cardiovascular disease. Dyslipidemia means abnormal levels of fats (lipids) in the blood. Extra fats in the blood can accumulate in the arteries, increasing the risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. A particularly dangerous type of fat is low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, often abbreviated to LDL-C. Statins have traditionally been the go-to medication to treat high cholesterol, but some patients continue to have persistently high LDL-C despite taking these medications. Some researchers hope to fight high cholesterol using a new class of medication called PCSK9 inhibitors that may help the body break down LDL-C and reduce cholesterol levels. 

       

      Nature Coast Clinical Research – Inverness is conducting a research study to evaluate a new investigational PCSK9 inhibitor medication for dyslipidemia. 

       

      You may be eligible to participate if you: 

      • Are 18-75 years old 
      • Have high LDL-C Cholesterol (70-189) 
      • Are on daily moderate or high-dose statin therapy 
        • Atorvastatin 10+ mg 
        • Lovastatin 40+ mg 
        • Pravastatin 40+ mg 
        • Rosuvastatin 5+ mg 
        • Simvastatin 40+ mg 

       

      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 study-related time and travel. No health insurance is required to participate.

      Overweight With Other Conditions

      Nature Coast Clinical Research – Crystal River is conducting a research study that will evaluate the effect of an investigational weight loss drug on cardiovascular safety in people who are overweight or obese.

      Obesity is widespread, difficult to manage, and can be unhealthy. It can increase cardiovascular risks, including chances of stroke, heart attack, and high blood pressure. Multiple signals in the body may change with obesity, making weight loss difficult. Medications that target these signaling pathways are needed to help fight this increasing epidemic, and clinical trials are needed to investigate potential solutions.

      You may be eligible to participate if you:

      • Are 18+ years old
      • Have a BMI >27 with any of the following (A and/or B)
        • A. Have Cardiovascular Disease (CVD), including any of the following:
            • Heart failure
            • Coronary artery disease (CAD)
            • Previous heart attack
            • Previous stroke (ischemic or hemorrhagic)
            • Previous revascularization procedure
            • Stent(s)
            • Peripheral artery disease
        • B. Have a BMI >30 with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

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

      Jacksonville (University)- Study (SUSTAIN OPTIMIZE)

      Diabetes Research

      We are conducting a research study for people with type 2 diabetes who are currently taking insulin glargine (ex: Lantus Solostar) and metformin. This research study will evaluate the effectiveness and safety of using semaglutide once weekly as an add-on treatment.

      You may be eligible if you:

      • Are 18 or older
      • Are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes
      • Have a BMI of 25 or greater
      • Are taking daily metformin ≥1500 mg or maximally tolerated dose
      • Are taking once-daily insulin glargine (ex: Lantus Solostar) < 40 units per day

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

      Type 2 Diabetes and Increased Risk for Heart Disease or Stroke

      Type 2 diabetes is frequently associated with coexisting conditions such as increased weight, hypertension, and increased blood lipoprotein (fat/cholesterol) concentrations. People with type 2 diabetes have a higher risk for cardiovascular disease. Global studies show approximately a third of individuals with type 2 diabetes have cardiovascular disease.

      We are conducting a research study that will be comparing a new investigational medication with insulin therapy for people with type 2 diabetes and excess weight who are at risk for heart disease or stroke.

      You may be eligible if you:

      • Are at least 18 years of age
      • Have a BMI of 25 or higher
      • Have type 2 diabetes with an HbA1c between 7 and 10.5
      • Are taking at least one oral medication for diabetes
      • Have or are at risk for heart disease, stroke, or other blood vessel diseases, or have kidney disease

      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.
