Study Summary:

Do you have pain in your legs from Diabetes? Volunteer for a Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN) study.

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy otherwise known as DPN is increasingly becoming a major health problem in the United States for people who are diabetic. Over time, high blood sugar levels can damage nerves throughout your body. These peripheral nerves, which are the nerves that sense pain, touch, hot and cold, are most often affected in the feet and lower legs. Symptoms of DPN include sharp pains, tingling, burning or loss of sensation and muscle weakness. Currently there is no cure for DPN and there are few treatment options.

Coastal Carolina Research Center is currently seeking volunteers to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of an oral investigational medication for the treatment of DPN.

To qualify for this study you must be:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • Diagnosed with Type I or Type II diabetes
  • Had signs and symptoms of DPN for at least 6 months
