Study Summary:

Volunteers needed for a long-term High Cholesterol research study

Coastal Carolina Research Center is conducting a clinical research study to evaluate an investigational injectable medication (administered every 4 weeks) as a background therapy for persons who have high cholesterol. Volunteers may also receive approved cholesterol medication(s) by participating in this study.

As you probably are aware, high cholesterol is a contributing factor to coronary heart disease (CHD) which is still the # 1 leading cause of death in the United States. While the causes of increased cholesterol are unknown, risk factors such as diet, weight, and family history can increase a person’s chances of developing it.

To be considered for participation in this research study, you must be 18 to 75 years of age, have high cholesterol, and have an “LDL cholesterol level” (ie: bad cholesterol) greater then 75 mg. Persons who currently treat their high cholesterol or persons who don’t currently treat their high cholesterol are welcome to apply. Research staff at my office will review additional criteria with you to determine if you’re eligible.

If you are eligible and decide to participate, you can expect approximately 18 visits over 1 year. Qualified participants will receive all study related care including physician visits at no cost and will receive monetary compensation for time and travel expenses.

Participation in this research study includes:

  • Study-related Physical Exams
  • Study medication
  • Dietary Counseling
  • Lab work
  • Electrocardiograms (ECGs), which is a simple test that measures the electrical activity of the heart
