Why not participate in Diabetes clinical research? Volunteers Needed

Clinical research trials are essential to guide the development of new medications that improve control of your diabetes, or improve the health care of others.

Research in Type 2 diabetes is being conducted by our group at the University of Adelaide and SAHMRI, and aims to investigate the way sugars enter the blood (from our food), and whether these pathways in the gut can be targeted in new ways to further improve control of blood sugar levels.

You will be required to attend our clinic at the Royal Adelaide Hospital on 3 separate occasions, with visits of up to 4 hours duration. Volunteers are required to consume a beef lasagne meal (provided) prior to each visit, and to take an oral capsule 3 times a day between each visit. Capsules will contain either artificial sweeteners or a placebo.

 
Are you:

  • Type 2 Diabetic, diabetes controlled via diet or metformin medication only, up to 75 yrs of age

  • Healthy Volunteers, aged 28-75 yrs

  • Females are required to be post-menopausal or on hormonal contraceptives

  • Non smoker

  • No history of gastrointestinal disease or surgery, or weight loss surgery

  • Willing to have blood samples taken during the study visits
     

    Upon successful completion of the study, volunteers will receive a $150 gift voucher.

    This research is approved by Royal Adelaide Hospital Ethics Committee.

     
    If you answered 'yes' to the above criteria, then you may be eligible to volunteer for this study. Please download our flyer or visit our website for more information.
