Do You Qualify for a Clinical Study at Accord?

  • Have you been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)?
  • Can you comply with a given study schedule and required procedures?
  • Are you willing to provide a signed informed consent form?
  • Are you over the age of 18 years old?

If you’ve answered yes to these questions, then it sounds like you could qualify for a IBS clinical trial at Accord Clinical Research. You also should know that health insurance is not a requirement in order to enroll in a research study.

Compensation for Participating in a Clinical Trial

If you are considering clinical trial participation, please note that all study-related care, including administered medication and required screenings, are provided free of charge. Participants may also receive compensation for their time and any related travel expenses. The amount of compensation may vary depending on the study.

IBS Signs and Symptoms

As common as this condition is, physicians note that the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome can range significantly from patient to patient. On top of that, many symptoms can mimic those of other diseases. Below are some of the most common IBS symptoms:

  • A bloated sensation
  • Excessive gas
  • Cramping or severe abdominal pain
  • Alternating bouts of constipation and diarrhea
  • The presence of mucus in the stool
