Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a condition that can eventually lead to heart disease and stroke. Blood pressure measures the amount of blood the heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in the arteries. High blood pressure occurs when arteries narrow. The condition develops gradually, and it may go undiagnosed for many years.
If you suffer from hypertension, you may qualify for a clinical trial. Many experimental medications are being tested now that can help control high blood pressure. By participating in a clinical trial, you gain access to medication before it is generally available.
Columbus Clinical Research is currently researching an oral medication. If you qualify, you will receive all the necessary examinations, lab work and medication at no cost. You will also receive a blood pressure monitoring device and may be compensated for your time and travel.
