Clinical Trials

Home Flu-Test Study

Posted on 1/1/2019
This study is being conducted to validate the performance of the Theraflu Home Flu Test in detecting Influenza A as compared to the standard approved method of testing for flu. 

If you or someone you know (children or adults) has flu type symptoms, you may qualify if:

  • You are at least 2 years of age
  • You have, or have had a fever of 100 degrees or higher within 24 hrs of coming to the clinic.  Or, if the parent reports a history of fever of at least 100 degrees or ''feeling feverish'' within 24 hrs of coming to the clinic
  • Runny nose or congested
  • Symptoms began 72 hours or less at the time of coming to the clinic

This is a one visit study that will last approximately 1-2 hours in the clinic.  There will be a total of 3 nasal swabs for the study.  Two swabs will be done by the subject (or parent) and one swab will be done by the research coordinator.  Results of the test will be called in to the subject within a few days.

Subjects will receive a $100 Mastercard gift card upon completion of the visit to compensate for their time and travel. 
What Our Research Patients are Saying
"Last January I had to begin taking insulin for my diabetes. It was life changing for me. I had always been afraid of starting insulin. However, when I qualified for the diabetes clinical trial, it helped me accept this change in my life. The Research Coordinators are the very best you could ask for. They explained everything and let me know what to expect. I could never have controlled my diabetes if it hadn't been for this research program, the research staff and the study doctor. I would recommend participating in a research trial to anyone who has diabetes. It and the research staff are a godsend."
