Now Recruiting: A 15-center Trial of Electromagnetic Neuromodulation therapy for FM pain, and a global study of fatigue in chronic illness

Two new studies are calling for participants now:
  • A multi-center trial of electromagnetic "neuromodulation" therapy for Fibromyalgia pain
  • And a web-based global study of fatigue in chronic illness.
  • 1. Study of Low-Frequency Neuromodulation
    Therapy in Adult Patients With Fibromyalgia

    This randomized, placebo-controlled Phase III investigational trial will study the ability of a device involving delivery of specific, low-power electromagnetic pulses to reduce chronic musculoskeletal pain in Fibromyalgia patients. (“The theory of operation involves the modulation of key areas in the brain…where the pain is perceived…” according to the device’s maker.)

    Secondary outcome measures will include mood alteration, sleep quality, physical function, and medication usage.

    The study may last up to 20 weeks, and includes 8 clinic visits. To qualify for the study, participants must be at least 18 years old, have FM pain at least 6 months, and be able to stop all medications except aspirin and Tylenol. Qualifying participants will receive physical exams, blood tests, and compensation for time and travel expense.

    The study (ClinicalTrials.gov # NCT0045095) is recruiting in at least 10 clinical centers in California, Florida, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Washington State, and at 3 centers in Ontario, Canada.

    For more details on the trial, trial sites, criteria for inclusion/exclusion, and contact information, go to http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct/show/NCT00450905?order=1

    2. Online Study of Fatigue in Fibromyalgia,
    CFS, & Other Chronic Illnesses

    The Centre for Postgraduate Nursing at Otago University in New Zealand is conducting an international online study looking at fatigue in adults with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, depression, diabetes, cancer, and other chronic illnesses. People who are managing their fatigue or have recovered are invited to participate.

    The objectives of “The Nature and Management of Fatigue” research study are to gain a better understanding of fatigue across different chronic conditions, and of the strategies people are using to manage their fatigue - as a means of helping health professionals to develop useful intervention guidelines. The study includes a survey to collect information on the nature and management of your fatigue, and a page where you can offer a brief personal story - both at your discretion and all kept anonymous.

    To learn more about the study and to participate, go to http://www.fatiguestudy.org/index.cfm.

    If you have questions about the study and its findings, you may contact fatigue.csmhs@otago.ac.nz
