Clinical Trials At Vanguard Gastroenterology
Posted on: Mar 30 2015 By: Vanguard Gastroenterology
Designed to add to the existing medical knowledge related to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases or conditions, clinical trials offer hope to many and also help researchers find better treatment options for other patients in the future. Located in mid-town Manhattan, the Clinical Research Division of Vanguard Medical group has extensive experience in orchestrating a wide range of clinical trials at its Kips Bay Office. Working within Vanguard’s multi-specialty practice, the Research Division provides its patients with access to early breakthroughs in medical treatments, technologies, as well as pharmaceuticals.
Currently at Vanguard Gastroenterology we are working on the following clinical trials:

We are looking for female or male patients who are older than 18 years of age, and have been diagnosed with mild-moderate or severe CDAD (first occurrence or first recurrence within 3 months) with diarrhea, and test positive for C. difficile on a stool sample.
