HHDC-Tulsa's research program investigates new drugs and treatment methods which help advance understanding about diabetes and other endocrine disorders. It is our goal to supply accurate, reliable and precise data to our research sponsor partners, all while maintaining strict adherence to good clinical practice guidelines.
Advances in treatment can only be made with your help: patient volunteers who participate in clinical trials and studies. Research patients play a crucial role in helping find better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat endocrine disorders. Many patient volunteers gain satisfaction knowing they are aiding in an effort to reduce the suffering of others by advancing understanding of new or improved medical therapies.
If you are interested in volunteering to participate in a research study, talk to your provider, or contact the research team:
TRIALS CURRENTLY RECRUITING
Young adults (18-30 years old) with Type 1 Diabetes who wear a pump are needed for a 32 week nutritional intervention. This study focuses on whether a low carbohydrate diet (60-80 g per day) improves glycemic control, markers of inflammation, and lipids in young adults compared to standard diabetes diets (>150 g carbohydrates per day). Participants visit the clinic 7 times in 32 weeks.
Adolescents (10-17 years old) with Type 2 Diabetes are needed for this 62 week pharmaceutical trial. Participants will receive weekly injections and visit the clinic 11 times in 62 weeks. Exenatide is already FDA approved for the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes in adults and is considered a promising treatment option for young people with Type 2 Diabetes.
Stopping Gestational Diabetes
American Indian / Alaska Native girls ages 12-24, along with their mothers, are sought for a computer based study. the program will determine if information about eating healthy and making exercise easier could lead to healthy weight and lowering the chances of getting gestational diabetes. Participants will visit the clinic 4 times in 9 months.
Screening is offered free to relatives of people with Type 1 Diabetes to evaluate their personal risk for developing the disease. This unique screening can identify the early stages of Type 1 Diabetes years before any symptoms appear. It also helps researches learn more about how Type 1 Diabetes develops and plans new studies exploring ways to prevent it.
