Clinical Trials

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Posted on 1/14/2020
The purpose of this study is to see if the study drug is safe and effective in women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).  The study will also look at how Elagolix works in the body and measure the amount of study drug in the body at different time points.  The study drug, Elagolix, has been approved by the FDA to treat specific medical conditions, but is not approved to treat PCOS.  Therefore it is considered investigational.

If you have been diagnosed with PCOS you may qualify if:
  • You are an adult female between 18 and 35 years of age
  • You have a history of menstrual irregularity
  • You are more than 6 months post-partum, post-pregnancy, and post-lactation
In addition, there are other qualifying criteria that will be discussed in more detail with you.

Your participation in this study will last up to about 42 weeks and includes a minimum of 28 study visits to the research center.  If you qualify, you have a 1 in 4 chance of receiving placebo, which is a drug that contains no active ingredient. 

There will be no charge for participating in the study.  All study medication, study procedures, materials and study specific visits will be provided at no charge to you or your insurance company.  

If you qualify and decide to participate you will be compensated for your time and travel while participating in the study.  You will receive a minimum of $50 for each study visit, although some visits will pay more.  Lab draw visits will pay $25 per visit.

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."
