3 Types of COVID-19 Clinical Trials at Our Centers
New Covid-19 Tests
are Being Tested
New rapid-results tests are under development: Molecular tests which can identify COVID-19 genetic material, and antigen tests that can find certain proteins of the COVID-19 virus.
Also, new, more accurate antibody tests are being developed to show whether someone has active antibodies against COVID-19.. It is unknown at this time whether one can develop long-term or permanent immunity to COVID-19.
These new tests will likely be compared against existing ones currently in use to determine whether they are more accurate at detecting exposure to COVID-19, or may even reveal active illness and contagiousness.
Covid-19 Vaccines Not
Yet Available to the Public
All vaccines must go through human research trials before they can receive FDA-approval for use in the U.S. general population. Our centers will be participating in various types of vaccine trials designed to determine various factors, such as effectiveness with certain age groups, and safety when receiving a COVID-19 vaccine along with other regularly-scheduled vaccinations.
Pharmaceutical companies across the world have been racing to develop safe and effective vaccines that will prevent Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection, now commonly-known as COVID-19. COVID-19 is known to be extremely dangerous to the elderly, those with underlying health conditions, or who are otherwise immune-compromised,
Covid-19 Treatment Studies
Various medical treatment protocols are now being developed for those suffering from Covid-19 illness.
Some Covid-19 infected people have no noticeable symptoms yet have shown to be contagious to others they come in contact with.
Other people become mildly- to moderately-ill from Covid-19, and exhibit symptoms that are often confused with symptoms of the common cold or flu.
Research Your Health COVID-19 Testing and Vaccine Treatment Centers will be performing research studies in a variety of outpatient (at-home) and inpatient (hospital, nursing home, or other managed care) settings.
