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
"I was on edge when I first went to DCOL Research because of the sensitive nature of my diagnosis. Upon arrival to the research office I was treated very kindly and professionally as soon as I signed in. The Research Coordinator was friendly and compassionate and made me feel at ease. I was informed about the trial and they ensured that I had a clear understanding of the information. During all my visits I felt at ease and informed. The Research Coordinator is very professional as is the Lab Coordinator. It is always a smooth process and the staff is confident and friendly. The study doctor is also helpful and always asks if I have any problems or concerns, just like the staff."
