Welcome to St. Johns Center for Clinical Research


Clinical trials move medicine forward. Sponsors, such as pharmaceutical companies, governments and foundations fund medical research. Patients who participate in clinical research receive many advantages including treatment at no cost, access to expertise and resources such as expensive tests. Research volunteers shape the future and can have fun while helping others and themselves.

 

As a premier clinical research organization, we have conducted more than 1,000 clinical trials over 20 years and have worldwide recognition for providing patients access to cutting edge medical research. If you have a medical issue and want a research solution, or if you are a healthy volunteer, come visit our center and learn more. One of our experts will be happy to evaluate you.


Shape the Future

Clinical research is a process that gives back. Volunteers generate information that improves future health care outcomes for everyone.

Find relief with new treatments

Volunteers join research to seek relief from affliction and to better understand their conditions with support from our caring team.

Programs Offer Resources or Pay

Study participants receive medical tests, services, counseling and treatment at no charge. These measures may be unavailable to the general public!


We do research in many areas


Statin Intolerance

Statin Intolerance Research Study


We are seeking volunteers for a research study to evaluate an investigational medication for individuals unable to take medications called statins without side effects.
You may be eligible if:

   * You are at least 18 years old
   * You are statin intolerant  
There are additional study requirements to qualify for participation.
Participants who qualify will receive study related medication and medical exams at no cost. Qualified participants will receive compensation for time and travel.

Overactive Bladder Research

Overactive Bladder Research



We are conducting a clinical research study of an investigational oral medication for women with an Overactive Bladder (OAB). This study is for women ages 18 through 80.
You may be eligible to participate if you have symptoms of OAB including frequency or urgency. 
There are additional criteria to qualify for this study. There is no cost for participation and no health insurance required. Participants who qualify for our study will receive study related medication and medical exams at no cost. Qualified participants will also receive compensation for time and travel.

The Campaign to End PAD

Peripheral arterial disease, commonly known as PAD, affects approximately 10 million people in the United States and about 150 million people worldwide. According the National Institute of Health, 1 in 20 Americans over age 50 has PAD. In simple terms, the disease is a circulatory problem in which blood flow to the limbs is reduced. The leading cause is atherosclerosis (plaque buildup in the arteries) and risk factors include age, diabetes, and smoking.

Researchers around the globe are currently looking for novel, effective treatments for peripheral arterial disease, due to the debilitating effects the disease can cause. While PAD can be asymptomatic in mild cases, some people living with PAD experience significant pain due to the condition. Outwardly noticeable symptoms include poor toenail or leg hair growth and slow healing wounds while other symptoms include lowered extremity temperatures and muscle pain the hips, thighs and calves. The discomfort can become so severe, that it is felt even when the body is at rest. Quality of life is greatly reduced as a result of this pain and can be further reduced by the development of chronic wounds that may become so advanced that amputations are required. Current standard of care does not work for everyone and alternative options include invasive procedures. PAD is a disorder that needs a better course of treatment to improve functional exercise capacity in patients. 

Jacksonville Center for Clinical Research is very fortunate to be conducting a research study of an investigational new drug for PAD treatment.  The study involves a monoclonal antibody which aims to reduce inflammation in the circulatory system of the body which may lead to greater blood flow in the limbs. The hope of this study is that these effects might improve quality of life by leading to greater mobility and extended exercise capacity.  There is never a charge to patients and insurance is never required to participate in this research study. We hope that members of this community will seize this opportunity to learn about both this research and their condition.
