P-One Clinic (Hachioji, Tokyo) is seeking male and female medical volunteers for an upcoming clinical study this May and June 2019.
Clinical studies (also called “clinical trials”) are scientific tests to check the efficacy and safety of new drugs, medical devices, and healthcare procedures. They are conducted with the cooperation of willing volunteers and governed by the strict legal and ethical guidelines of Good Clinical Practice (GCP).
Those who pass the initial selection will be invited to an information/consent session and screening health check (Apr 23rd or 26th). Volunteers who pass the screening will be invited to participate in a test of a drug. Starting in mid-May, they will stay at the clinic 3 times, for 4 nights each time, and return for a short follow up on June 25th (specific dates below).
For this study, we are looking for individuals who meet all the conditions below:
- Healthy white male or female
- Aged 20 to 55 years at time of screening
- BMI (body mass index) 18.0 to 30.0 as measured at screening
- You are living in Japan with either Japanese nationality or a valid residence card
- Your test results and medical background at the screening and on the day before dosing are suitable for the study
- Willing to consent to the study and able to abide by study requirements
If you meet any of the following conditions, you cannot participate in the study:
- You have a serious physical or psychological condition or a history of such a condition
- You test positive on either the drug or alcohol test at the screening or the day before dosing
- You test positive for hepatitis B, hepatitis C, syphilis, or HIV at the screening
