Running out of options to handle crippling Diabetic Nerve Pain?

A clinical research study may be an option for you!

Diabetic nerve pain (also called diabetic peripheral neuropathy or DPN) if left untreated, can lead to serious complications. Despite recent advances in diabetic peripheral neuropathy treatment, there is a need for more effective and advanced treatment options.

Right now, endocrinologists near you at select centers in the US, including our sites at Revival Research Institute are conducting a research study for people with moderate to severe diabetic nerve pain.
You may qualify for a diabetic nerve pain study if you:

  • Are above the age of 18 years
  • Experience diabetic nerve pain for at least 6 months
  • Take a stable antidiabetic therapy for type 1 or type 2 diabetes

Men and women who suffer from diabetic nerve pain and fulfill the above criteria are eligible to participate in this diabetic peripheral neuropathy study.

*There is no cost to you or your private medical insurance to participate in this clinical research trial. You will be monetarily compensated for your time and travel. And all participants receive
study-related care from doctors & health care professionals, free of cost.

*If you think you might like to participate in the Diabetic Nerve Pain Study or would like more information, please enter your information so we can see if you may qualify and can contact you about the study. Keep in mind that your participation is entirely voluntary. If you do decide to take part in a study, you may change your mind about participating at any time.

Please provide YOUR contact information only.

About the Peripheral Diabetic Neuropathy Study

Around 282 men and women with peripheral diabetic neuropathy will be enrolled in the Diabetic Nerve Pain clinical trial, which will take place at around 45 research centers across the United States. Volunteers’ participation will take approximately 105 days including a 2-week screening period, a 2 week period to asses compliance with the pain diary and medication and over all pain score, 6 weeks double-blind treatment period, followed by a 5-week safety follow-up period. This is a Phase 2 multicentre, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel-group study.

Male and females of age 18 years or older, diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and chronic diabetic peripheral neuropathy pain are eligible to participate in this study.

We are assessing the safety and efficacy of an oral study drug that may help people with symptoms of diabetic nerve pain. The tolerability of the drug will be monitored by collecting information on adverse events, clinical laboratory results, ECG findings, and vital signs throughout the study period.

*The study drug procedures are free of charge to all the participants. People who meet the study’s eligibility requirements will be compensated for their time andtravel expenses too. No insurance is required to volunteer. 

Get Started: What to Expect?

To see if you qualify for the diabetic nerve pain study, please fill out your information in the form and we will contact you. If you do qualify for this round, you will be invited to our study site for a screening visit.  After further screenings, if you qualify, you will be asked to sign an informed consent form. Once it’s signed, you will be asked health-related questions and several health assessments and tests will be conducted to help determine if you are eligible as a volunteer.

If you qualify as a participant, you will be provided with a study drug that must be taken orally. Your participation in the study will last for approximately a total of 13 weeks. The study team will continue to monitor your health throughout the duration of your participation in the study. There is no cost to you to participate in the study and you will receive study-related care from expert physicians and health care professionals.

About Diabetic Nerve Pain

diabetic peripheral neuropathy study

Diabetic Nerve Pain (also known as Diabetic peripheral neuropathy) is the most common complication of diabetes. It is caused by multiple factors. 

What DPN Does To Your Body? 

Nerves in your extremities and other regions of your body are damaged by chronically high blood sugar (glucose) levels. These injured nerves are unable to carry signals between the brain and the rest of the body. It’s possible that you won’t feel heat, cold, or discomfort in your feet, legs, or hands as a result of this. You may not notice a cut or pain in your foot, which is why it’s critical to examine your feet on a regular basis. 

Symptoms of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy  

For many, the early signs of peripheral diabetic neuropathy include; numbness, cramping, tingling, prickling, and a burning feeling. For others, one of the signs is an overabundance of sensitivity to touch. Take note of any of the aforementioned symptoms. As consequences of such infection might be life-threatening. Know about your condition and don’t ignore the symptoms you notice because, with time, it can get worse.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is diabetic peripheral neuropathy?

Peripheral diabetic neuropathy is nerve damage caused by chronically high blood sugar (glucose) and diabetes. It leads to loss of sensation, numbness, prickling and sometimes pain in your feet, legs, or hands. It is the most frequent complication of diabetes.

Is peripheral neuropathy reversible in a diabetic?

Nerve damage from diabetes can’t be reversed. This is because the body can’t naturally repair nerve tissues that have been damaged. However, symptoms of peripheral diabetic neuropathy can be manageable. With the right choice of diabetic peripheral neuropathy treatment and the right support from your endocrinologist, there can be better outcomes. 

For many, clinical trials may be an option. At Revival Research Institute, our professional research staff and highly experienced physicians are dedicated to helping you and countless others find relief from DPN.

If I choose to take part in the study, how will my safety be protected?

As per the requirement of every clinical research organization, we must follow guidelines and regulatory requirements to help protect the rights, safety, and well-being of all participants. These include Good Clinical Practice (GCP). GCP is an international scientific and ethical, quality standard for clinical trial design and execution.
Many entities are involved in your and other volunteers’ participation. This includes the Institutional Review Boards (IRB), and data safety and monitoring boards.

Is there a cost to participate?

You will receive study-related care and the study treatment at no cost to you or your insurance provider.

How do you fix diabetic peripheral neuropathy?

While there are several medications available for diabetic peripheral neuropathy, they don’t work for everyone and can also cause unwanted side effects from the treatments. There is no way to fix diabetic nerve pain, however the symptoms are manageable with the right diet, controlling your blood glucose levels and taking care of your hands and feet.

Revival Research Institute aims to find potential treatments for diseases and conditions. We have conducted multiple research studies for various diseased states in the hope of advancing healthcare and redefining patient care. We are conducting clinical trials for potential diabetic peripheral neuropathy treatment, to provide you with relief. Our professional research staff includes some of the best physicians, endocrinologist in Arizona and Michigan.

Where can I find an endocrinologist near me to participate in a peripheral diabetic neuropathy research study?

We try to match our volunteers to study centers that are close to them, at approximately 50-mile radius or less. Our research staff includes highly-qualified and experienced physicians, endocrinologists and nurses. They may be able to help sift through options available, including participating in clinical trials so that you may be able to find relief from  your condition.
