Recreational opiate users
There is an opioid crisis in North America.
Governments are developing strategies to address this problem in the interest of public health. Part of the strategy is to create new drug formulations that are more difficult to tamper with and abuse.
These studies are mandated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) prior to the new medications being approved and must show improved safety from drugs already on the market.
For these trials to be successful, we need people with previous recreational/occasional drug use to participate in our studies.
We cannot ethically enroll anyone naïve to using opioids, nor can we allow anyone who is dependent on drugs to participate.
Thank you in advance to those of you who participate in this crucial research. Without you, no new medications can be approved.
Who are we?
It takes about 12 years of research and development before a new medication is put on the market. Each medication must undergo an extensive testing process to ensure that it is both safe and effective. Humans are only involved in the very last steps of this long process, through clinical testing.
At Alta, we mainly conduct trials for generic formulations (copies) of medications which are already on the market, but we also conduct trials for new medications.
Participants are crucial to medical research. Without them, no new medication could be approved or improved.
Information About The Current Study
Who are we Seeking? We are recruiting participants between the ages of 18 and 55 who use opioid painkillers recreationally.
How are participants compensated for this study?For completing the clinical trial, you will be compensated up to $5,000.
How long is the study?
The study consists of 1 overnight clinic visits starting in November.
All of the details will be explained by one of our agents over the phone.
What are the advantages of taking part in this study?
By taking part in this study, you will be helping the development of a medication type which could eventually be part of the solution to the opioid epidemic.
In addition, you will be compensated for your time.
