Hot Flashes/Night Sweats?

Monday, August 19th, 2019

It’s hot.  It’s really hot.  It’s August.  The heat and humidity can be oppressive.  Are you dreaming about winter, not because you like the snow, but because you want to cool off?  But then again, maybe those hot flashes and night sweats are still doing you in even in the winter.

Bothersome hot flashes and night sweats can plague women for over a decade after menopause.  Are you one of these women who finds herself tearing off layers because you can’t cool off?  Tossing off the covers at night?  Interrupted sleep due to night sweats?  Embarrassed by sweat pooling on your upper lip?  It’s the pits!  (And speaking of the pits, those stains in your shirts are also quite horrifying!)

Coastal Connecticut Research in New London has been conducting clinical research studies for 20 years.  The studies we conduct deal with real life issues real people like you are facing.  Clinical research plays an important role in the future of medicine.  Our research volunteers have made a huge difference in how people are treated for a variety of conditions.

We are currently conducting a hot flash study in which volunteers will evaluate a non-hormonal investigational study product for hot flashes and night sweats. Those interested in learning more about what being a participant in a clinical research study involves are welcome to contact a member of the CCRstudies team to learn more at (860)443-4567.

Non-Hormonal Hot Flash Study

Tuesday, April 10th, 2018

Have you gone through menopause?

Do you have hot flashes?

Sometimes hot flashes (feeling flushed and/or sweaty)
can get in the way of daily activities and sleep. The
ASPIRE-1 Study is a clinical research trial looking
at a non-hormonal, investigational medication to see
if it affects the quality of sleep.

Could you take part?
We are looking for women who:
• have gone through menopause (stopped having
periods)
• have hot flashes that include sweating about
7 times per day.

The study will last about 20 weeks and will require
7 visits to the study center. About 360 women across
the United States will take part in the ASPIRE-1 Study.
All study medication and study-related procedures
will be provided at no cost.
We are enrolling women now.

Sweating From Hot Flashes?

Monday, July 18th, 2016

They say “if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen.” But, what if that kitchen is without an exit?  Two thirds of American women are reported to suffer from postmenopausal hot flashes.  If you no longer get your monthly menstrual period, and you are living with bothersome hot flashes, you may be interested in learning more about a clinical research study underway in New London testing a non-hormonal investigational medication for the treatment of hot flashes.  Women 40-65 may be eligible to participate in the research study.

It’s summer in Southeastern Connecticut and the weather has been hot and humid, which makes those living with hot flashes extremely uncomfortable.  Participation in The Hot Flash Study could lead to a new treatment for this condition and increased understanding of hot flashes in postmenopausal women.

Contact a member of the CCRstudies team at (860)443-4567 to see if you may qualify, or take the pre-screener online at http://www.thehotflashstudy.com. You are also welcome to email MaryLou@ccrstudies.com.  There is no cost to participate in the research study, no insurance needed.  Reimbursement of up to $525 is available for time and travel.  The study consists of 7 office visits over the course of 3 months.

Study visits will take place on Montauk Avenue in New London.  Dr. Robert Spitz and Dr. Craig McKnight are the local study gynecologists.

If you are a woman living with hot flashes, you are welcome to call (860)443-4567.

 

 

 

 

Living Life with Hot Flashes?

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Are frequent hot flashes making you sweat and interfering with your daily routine?  You may qualify for The Hot Flash Study.

About Hot Flashes and Night Sweats

Hot flashes are sudden feelings of feverish heat, frequently accompanied by a flushed face and sweating, that are most often associated with menopause or post-menopause.

If you are a woman who experiences frequent hot flashes, you may feel that your condition is an obstacle to your daily activities.  Symptoms may be uncomfortable, and their inconvenient timing may feel out of control or even embarassig.

Hot Flash Stats

2 in 3 women experience hot flashes in their life

Hot flashes can continue 5+ years after menopause

The average hot flash is 4 minutes long

For many women, hot flashes are most troubling at night when it can be difficult to sleep.

The CCRstudies team would be happy to share more information with you regarding The Hot Flash Study. Call (860)443-4567.
