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
• 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.

Has the Arctic Chill Cooled Your Hot Flashes?

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018

Let’s face it. We’re New Englanders.  Here at Coastal Connecticut Research, we have the good fortune of being located just a block away from the Thames River in New London and a few blocks away from Long Island Sound.  We are surrounded by quaint and charming New England homes and not too far from vibrant downtown New London.  But, with New England charm comes New England weather!

The recent cold snap, known as a polar vortex, has a lot of people feeling blah.  Believe it or not, a few women who suffer with moderate to severe hot flashes have told us they actually feel a little less overheated in periods of extreme cold. We do know, however, that Mark Twain wisely noted, “if you don’t like the weather in New England, wait five minutes.”  This too shall pass!

If you are a woman who has been living with bothersome hot flashes, don’t wait for another polar vortex to find relief! Coastal Connecticut Research is currently conducting a clinical research study testing an non-hormonal medication for the treatment of hot flashes and night sweats in postmenopausal women.  We encourage you to contact us to find out more.  There’s no need to run out in the freezing weather in your shorts and t-shirt to cool off!  Learn about an investigational medication being evaluated on women living with hot flashes.  (860) 443-4567.  Gynecologist Dr. Robert Spitz is the local study doctor and all visits take place in New London.  We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Are You Burning Up With Hot Flashes?

Monday, December 4th, 2017

Are you a woman who can’t sleep due to night sweats?  Sidelined by hot flashes?  But….you aren’t interested in hormones?

Coastal Connecticut Research is part of a nationwide effort to test an investigational, non-hormonal medication for the treatment of hot flashes and night sweats.  Researchers want to see if the investigational medication reduces the frequency and severity of hot flashes. Women who experience hot flashes following the loss of their monthly period may feel hot and sweaty (at the most inopportune time!) or wake up in the night covered in sweat. Hot flashes can be mild, moderate, or severe.  Most women will agree these are uncomfortable and often embarrassing symptoms of menopause.

For those interested in learning more about research volunteer opportunities, speak to a member of the CCRstudies team at (860) 443-4567 today.  Dr. Robert Spitz is the study gynecologist.
