Constipation is a condition that affects many Americans every now and then. If you experience infrequent bowel movements for extended periods of time, then you could have a more chronic case of constipation. These are cases that may require prescription medication or significant lifestyle adjustments in order to fix.

We are conducting constipation clinical trials in order to look at safe and effective new ways to treat and prevent this common condition. Our research team is looking to enroll qualified individuals from Port Orange and the surrounding area. Their involvement will help our researchers uncover better ways to treat constipation by validating the effectiveness of new medications.

Do You Qualify for a Constipation Clinical Trial at Accord?

If you’d like to participate in a clinical trial, we’d like you to know that the qualification criteria will vary depending on the type of study being conducted. This means that you might not qualify for a given clinical trial even if you do have constipation symptoms. We can’t list the specifics here, but there are a few factors to consider before contacting us about our constipation clinical trials:

  • You should be willing to comply with the procedures (clinic visits, scheduled exams) that pertain to the study you are enrolled in.
  • You won’t qualify if you have a record of substance or alcohol abuse within the past five years.
  • You don’t need health insurance to qualify for a clinical trial.
  • You should have experienced some form of constipation within the last year.

Constipation Signs & Symptoms

When was your last bowel movement? If it’s been more than three days, you are likely constipated. Most Americans have experienced a bout of constipation throughout their lifetime. However, some people become constipated far more frequently or with more severe symptoms. These can include:

  • Hard stools
  • Excessive straining during bowel movements
  • Sensation of rectal blockage
  • Feelings of incomplete evacuation
