Clinical Trials Related to Women’s Health
Women’s health focuses on the treatment and diagnosis of diseases and conditions that affect a woman’s physical and emotional well-being. These include a wide range of specialties and focus areas, such as sexually transmitted infections (STIs), gynecology, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and other female cancers, menopause and hormone therapy, pregnancy, and childbirth.
Participate in a clinical trial to help find alternative treatment options for women’s health conditions.
Chlamydia infection, often simply known as chlamydia, is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. Most people who are infected have no symptoms. When symptoms do develop this can take a few weeks following infection to occur. Symptoms in women may include vaginal discharge or burning with urination. Symptoms in men may include discharge from the penis, burning with urination, or pain and swelling of one or both testicles.
Endometriosis is when the lining of the uterus (that is shed every month during menstruation) surfaces in other places where it should not be, such as in all the reproductive organs as well as other places in the body. It can bleed just like the uterine lining and cause severe inflammation of the tissues.
RSV is a common respiratory virus that usually causes mild, cold-like symptoms. Most people recover in a week or two, but RSV can be serious, especially for infants and older adults. In fact, RSV is the most common cause of bronchiolitis (inflammation of the small airways in the lung) and pneumonia (infection of the lungs) in children younger than 1 year of age in the United States. It is also a significant cause of respiratory illness in older adults.
