Low Testosterone in Men

enrollingNow

Could low testosterone be affecting your life?

Though the symptoms may vary, some of the most common symptoms of low testosterone are:

  • Decreased libido/sex drive
  • Erectile problems (specifically erections that are less strong)
  • Decrease in muscle mass, strength or endurance
  • Fatigue
  • Depression and/or anxiety
  • Hot flashes/night sweats
  • Development of breast tissue

The symptoms of low testosterone are often mistaken for aging, and many with this condition don’t even know that they have it. It is estimated that up to 39% of men aged 45 years or older suffer from hypogonadism or low testosterone. If you have any of the above symptoms, you may want to discuss this and the possibility of low testosterone with your doctor.

Sunstone Medical Research is pre-screening for an upcoming low testosterone clinical trial now!  
If enrolled, qualifying participants will be monitored closely and evaluated regularly by a study physician.

Constipation can be a distressing side effect of some medications used to treat chronic pain and can have a negative effect on quality of life.

Over 6 million people (about 2% of the US population) use medications called opioids regularly to control chronic pain from conditions such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, back pain, neuropathy, migraines, fibromyalgia and others. The doctors at Sunstone Medical Research are now enrolling participants in an Opiate-Induced Constipation study now!

You may qualify to participate if you are:

  • Between 18-80 years old
  • Taking a stable daily dose of prescription pain medication

Uterine Fibroids

enrollingNow

Do heavy periods associated with uterine fibroids affect you? Consider volunteering for a clinical research study.

Estrogen and progesterone produced in your ovaries influence the growth of fibroids. The investigational medication being studied partially blocks the production of these hormones. Researchers want to find out if this investigational medication is safe and effective for shrinking the size of fibroids and decreasing the amount of blood loss during periods.

If you answer yes to the four questions below, you may qualify to take part in this clinical research study being conducted by a physician in your area.

  • Do you have heavy periods associated with uterine fibroids?
  • Are you 49 years old or younger?
  • Are you premenopausal (you have periods every month)?
  • If sexually active, are you willing to use non-hormonal
  • birth control (such as condoms, spermicide, diaphragm, cervical cap or vaginal sponge) provided at no cost for the duration of the study?

At no cost, participating patients will receive:

  • All study-related care and investigational medication at no cost.  
  • Compensation for time and travel may be provided.

Insurance is not required to participate.

If you are interested in participating or have any questions, please call 541-973-2080 or email us.
