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
"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."
